When it comes to the selection of your defensive handgun, the choices out there are as various as protective eyewear and hearing protection. How do you choose what is good for you and why? This article will help in narrowing down your choices to what will work for you in the protection of yourself and those that you love.
Whatever path we decide to take in this life, it is solely determined by our choices
and our choices alone. Too often in this community of apparent “alpha males” and
“gunfighters” you have constant bickering that is reminiscent of some high school level
drama. These individuals are compensating for something through either obsessively
customized firearms or obscene tall tales of acts and deeds that didn’t occur. Instead of
attempting to better themselves, these folks take on the task as being social media all-
stars. Instead of looking at this clique in our community as gospel, we should instead be
looking at ourselves in the mirror and asking, “Am I training to live?”
Hearing protection comes in all shapes, sizes, prices points and brands. As a
recreational or competitive shooter, military or law enforcement deciding on what’s right
for you can be difficult. Thankfully, Axil is here to provide all of your hearing protection
needs. From traditional over the ear headsets to customized, electronic plugs Axil has
an option every firearms enthusiast desires.
Since working at SportEAR, I have had the awesome opportunity to help develop and test out some of our hearing protection and enhancement devices. I came to work with SportEAR due to their industry leading reputation and technology. My favorite opportunity- by far- has been using our Custom Molded series. In this blog, I will share; the process I went through to select the right product for me, how I was fit for my custom units, my learning how the units functioned and finally putting them into action on the range. Basically, I want to shed some light for all of you as to the overall process for getting these awesome little devices and what using them looks like in real life.
Talking with customers around the world, I often get asked what the NRR or level of hearing protection in our product line is. What is NRR and at what level of dB do the devices actually shut off and there is always confusion between those two things and how it all works. They are actually very valuable to understand for you get the best protection you can for your hearing.
Hear & Protect At The Same Time™
The number one concept we still get asked about and explain more than any other over the years is the core concept our entire product offering is built around. How is it possible to enhance one’s hearing and protect their hearing at the same time and why does it matter?
Hear The Outdoors Come Alive! Part I
Welcome to our first SportEAR blog post ever! We look forward to the opportunity to share many more in the future. It seems fitting to head back to the beginning in 2000 when I first launched SportEAR.
I had already been helping people hear better as a Board Certified Hearing Specialist for over 7 years by that time. I had worked to develop the line for SportEAR for 4 years prior to launching.
