Just picked up my first pistol and I'm hoping to hear what you guys recommend in the way of earmuffs and eye protection. I've seen the limited offerings at the local gun shop but was hoping to get other ideas before I purchase anything.

Thanks in advance!

Go online don't buy anything in the box stores. I got some muffs for like $19 and I use my OAKLEY'S glasses.. Here's a kit for $30 bucks be fine for ya....

or for just muffs

http://www.midwayusa.com/product/524517/midwayusa-ultimate-10-earmuffs-by-peltor-nrr-30db-black $20 and get some cheap glasses /shrug.

Don't go all $200 on some electronic earmuffs it's not worth it imo less you're rich or an instructor. If you shoot a rifle just use plugs as muffs tend to hit the stock unless you get low profiles. If pistol only I myself use plugs and muffs just to be safe.

Optics suggestion is an ok set also for the price.. To be honest those ultimate 10s from midway are nice 30-33 npr is pretty much best your gonna get for that kinda price... I wouldn't go below 26 on the npr though evan my 33's are a little loud when shooting next to a larger than .45 pisol or a larger than .223 rifle. I use the muffs and some good plugs and a .44 will make me jump if it's on the lane right next to me.

To be fair to Optics just cause I love them guys this is nice also and the same price abouts as the midway set..Really though I wouldn't go below 29.. You'll thank me later. Don't forget to double up and wear your plugs too if you can. You can never have to much protection imo.
