  1. After many years of shooting major 3G matches, I finally decided to RO one. I can't believe I haven't done this before, but it was one of the best experiences I've had. The match was fun, the people I got to work with were superb, and it's always a great time at the Rock no matter the circumstances.
  2. Here's one that might help you. http://www.bhpsc.us/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/new_shooter_orientation.pdf
  3. As a clarification, only Hear-Pro distributors (not Hear-Pro actual......me) do instant plugs now. I am focused on the PRO37 and AMP37 products exclusively. I still offer the option for distributors to do instant, but I don't do it myself. I would also encourage someone to go with another company for non-electronic hearing protection......especially since many of them purchase their lab made products through Hear-Pro......but do not advertise that. (hint**** 'PRO37 and AMP37 refer to the NRR rating of the material)
  4. I don't like driving in the rain.

  5. Oh.......and the physical molds may have been destroyed, but we started 3D scanning molds last year, so we may have the molds in a digital file.
  6. Thanks Mark…….you’re spot on with everything you’ve said. Hear-Pro’s prices are slightly higher on the website because we do not charge for anything else, and even reimburse customers if they have to pay someone to have the impressions made. Additionally, we provide a 15% discount to anyone show proof of membership in a firearms related organization. There are several companies out there who provide custom hearing protection, and several of us use the same labs for our high end products. I will never claim that Hear-Pro is a better company, has the best products, or provides the best service……because all of that is really determined by our customers. What I will claim, is that Hear-Pro is more active and provides far more support for the competitive shooting community than any of these other companies. Just ask yourself…….how many of the other custom plug companies do the following; - Donate over $65,000 in prizes each year to prize tables - Has a dedicated shooting team with NINE active shooters - Sponsors another 14 shooters as an affiliate sponsor - Sponsors two collegiate teams - Donates prizes specifically for female and junior shooters - Donates prizes and runs events to benefit organizations like Task Force Dagger - Has an owner that actually shoots matches alongside everyone else…….and doesn’t just swoop in to a match to sell something to the captured audience - Strives to make sure every single customer is satisfied, to the point of providing full refunds……sometimes MONTHS after the purchase of a custom made product where costs cannot be recouped I’ve got a ton of these in my back pocket. I’m not trying to make it sound like we are a bowl of grits or anything………it’s just something I’m passionate about. I purchase products from companies like AP Customs, Black Bullets, Akai Customs, DSG Arms, JP, Nordic, Benelli, Shooters Source, Stage Zero, Xtreme Bullets, JABs Steel Targets………and so on, because they support our sport………and not just by donating $100 worth of products every now and then……but REALLY support our sport. OK…..rant over. Anyway……hope everyone has a great day. J
  7. As a business owner who puts tens of thousands of dollars on prize tables a year........THIS!
  8. It's hard to believe no one has had this question before. I'm going to make a few calles today......maybe I can get some answers.
  9. The Passguard plugs are made from a Patented Polymer silicone that has properties allowing it to react at certain frequencies based upon pressure in front of sound. In plain English? There's a bunch of small silicone balls smashed together....when the sound pressure presents just below one pascal, the small pieces of polymer smash together providing the attenuation. Otherwise, they allow low level sounds, that have a much lower leading pascal measurement, to pass through. Thanks for the info. It's very interesting innovation. I may try some out in the spring. What feedback do the other users out there have? Do they really work. I'm less nervous about their ability to hear voice and more concerned with how well they attenuate, speed of response, ability to block out pressure waves, etc. 40db of noise reduction. Those who wear them, swear by them. Perfect fit......(they ARE custom molded to your ear), blocks out more sound than they've ever experienced.......and no splitting headache from a head set squeezing their head......or sweaty ears from the ear muffs. I say that......and I do sell a set of dual microphone electronic ear muffs for only $65......so those are real popular too.
  10. I've got a Briley tube on my M2, and I wanted to put a larger cap on it so it stuck out just past the end of the barrel. I looked on Briley's website, and they won't have a cap like Nordic does......(or at least I didn't see one). Anyone know where to get one........or know if a Nordic cap will fit?
  11. Mark, thanks for the opportunity to be a Match Sponsor for the Heart of Dixie Shootout. For anyone thinking about having some plugs made, we are planning on setting up early FRIDAY morning, and making plugs all day long. So if you're shooting on Saturday, and want to have a new pair of plugs to use, stop by on Friday when you come and sign in and look at stages.......have your impressions made, and you can pick up your plugs Saturday morning before you shoot! Also, watch our dealer's forum here on BE and our Facebook page (linked from our main website) for special discounts only good for participants in the Heart of Dixie Shootout.

  13. Or, get some from us, since we are shooters ourselves, and you'll save yourself almost $100 on basic hearing protection.......and even more on the higher end models. We use a certified ISO 9000:9001 process, have medical device and material FDA certifications, and we supply hundreds of ENT clinics with their materials and accessories at wholesale prices, which means you're going to pay them more for something they don't do as a primary business.
