Why You Really Should Get A .22lr Handgun

Why You Really Should Get A .22lr Handgun:
There may be no more pleasing pistol to shoot than a .22 handgun. The shooting is easy and the ammunition is cheap…if you can find any. There may be no better tool in learning or sharpening shooting skill.
I agree, and I sincerely regret that I have allowed both of my .22 handguns to go by the way (I sold them for less than they were worth!) because I didn't realize how much I would miss them when they were gone.

But I have other options, and I thought I was cool with it until I decided to invite neighbors out for range days.

Example: I have neighbors who I value (actually, my landlord and his wife) and I have brought them to the range at my local club once ... and I'm in the process of bringing them back again.

SHE is not happy because the ear muffs are too tight and they made her feel uncomfortable>  I have no solution other than to provide her with ear spikes ( the inner-ear style of noise reduction technology).

HE doesn't seem to care .. give him a gun, drop a ton of ammo on the counter ... he'll keep shooting until he had no more reloads, and then he'll ask for more.  *(my kind of guy.)*

Um ... I could get to like this guy.  He has a proper appreciation for the availability of ammunition.

She?  I have no idea what I can do to find her fitting earmuffs that won't clamp too tightly around her head.  Any suggestions which are not "off the cuff" would be appreciated.  I think the problem is that the spring steel binders (for lack of a better word) are generally designed for people who are less sensitive to whatever it is that presses the ear protectors against your head.  I'm about to suggest inner-ear plugs, but those are even more uncomfortable for most people.

Anybody have any idea about hearing protection which is .. umm .. "less something that makes you feel like your ears are glued to  your head"?

Flents offers a purple inner ear plug that comes in a plastic jar of 40 pairs, available in many places especially Walmart. I think they're so soft and comfortable that I use them to sleep (noise wakes me up very easy). The plugs are rated with an NRR of 30.

Pro-Ears are the most comfortable muffs we use. We really like them.
