It depends on the DB if it is 26 and above you can shoot most anything and still hear vice commands, anyless it can cause ear damage unless it is a .22 LR. Shooter Plus has some Peltor's on sale here I beleive, you may want to check them out.

It actually depends on if you shoot in many matches you need to hear the Buzzer well and verbal commands. If you don't shoot many matches i would say the ES-85 electronic ear muffs would be fine unless as was said you are shooting a rifle indoors.

I'm "old school" and don't believe the electronics can protect hearing loss. I would recommend plugs and muffs indoors and muffs outside. I don't care how much conversation I miss.

That being said... Once the internal mic/speaker shuts off (at the sound of gunfire) the remaining hearing protection is only what they are rated at. It's the NRR that really counts.
