HARRIS and sons custom hearing protection Have you ever worn your ear muffs and eye protection all day and had permanent indentations in the side of your head? I did, and it drove me nuts. Then I discovered Harris and Sons hearing protection. Protecting my hearing is very important for me because I love shooting, but I also love playing bluegrass music with my band, That Dalton Gang. Since both music and shooting is so important to me, I needed the best hearing protection that the shooting world has to offer. I believe Harris and Sons is the best. My SpeedMaster inserts are the FF-12 model. First off, these are the coolest and most comfortable inserts I have ever worn. I wore them for two whole days during a 3-gun match and there was no discomfort or aching. Each pair is made specifically for your ear. You go to an audiologist where you have your ears tested and molds made. Then you send off the molds and test results to Harris and Sons so they can make them fit everything about your ear perfectly. You can even choose custom colors: purple zebra print—how awesome! These are very tiny but amazing pieces of technology in your ear, the inserts can have different memories for the different

types of competitive shooting—for me, rimfire and 3-gun, but I’ve used them for hunting too, which is another story for another day. They also have Bluetooth available (however, due to current parental restrictions mine don’t have that... yet). They amplify the good noises but keep the bad ones more quiet, you can also control the volume for each insert. For example, when I am shooting, I can hear people talking and the projectile hitting steel targets, but not the loud rapport from the firearms; Harris and Sons call this their Aural Shield. Since they are inserts, keeping them clean is pretty important, they have a special wax filter (HF3 Wax Filter System) to keep ear wax from building up in them. Overall, I have tried many different types of hearing protection, but for me, these are the best hearing protection devices on the market. Harris and Sons FF-12 model is $1,895 and available at harrisandsons.com - Cheyenne Dalton
