    I've gone shooting a few times and I really like it. In fact i'm going to get myself a handgun soon. What kind of ear protection do you guys who wear glasses use? Ear plugs alone don't seem to be enough for an indoor range, but ear muffs are real uncomfortable with my glasses on. Any advice for a noob?
     
  2. your best bet is to get contacts. But I dont see why earmuffs are uncomfortable, lots of people wear shooting glasses when they shoot, and still use muffs.

    Good earplugs work; I assume you use the cheap, foam shit.

    Get some gel style ones and never look back.

    I haven't noticed a problem when I wear eye protection or sunglasses with ear muffs.

    Yea, my ear muffs don't bother me with shooting glasses on, and my regular (reading) glasses fit a lot closer to my head than they do. If it's a problem, try some muffs with thicker seal pads.

    muffs work fine for me but they are annoying after awhile.

    i like plugs. i do sometimes wear both plugs and muffs. i've never had too much of a problem using muffs with my glasses.
