How do you guys do it?
I've always just used plugs, but recently got some electronic earmuffs and it's impossible to shoot my AR properly with them on. Any tips? or am I SOL?

I'm giving up on muffs for rifle shooting. A proper cheekweld raises the cover off my ear and eliminates its function.

Sucks, because foam plugs don't work well for me, either.

Maybe you just have a really squat head?

Maybe, I don't think I do, but ya never know.

I have to use plugs when shooting rifles as well.

I ruined my ears years ago at a Tom Petty Concert (3rd row back, front and center.) 19 years later and the ears still ring....

I use both plugs and muffs at the range.

Muffs. I have no problem shooting a rifle with them on.

Only whenI use the thing that goes up do I use muffs. Only because I spray from the hip then.
