Some advice for saving your hearing during a spur of the moment operation:

This guy looks and sounds exactly like the leprechaun that hunts me in my nightmares every time I have too much caffeine.

1) Spent casings or live rounds – Meh… fine whatever, in a pinch I guess it would work

2) Chewing gum – Maybe if you don’t have old man ear hair, otherwise you’re going to make a mess.  For the record I do not yet have old man ear hair.

2:20 – WHOA I DON’T KNOW WHAT JUST HAPPENED, but it was epic.

3) Cigarette filters – This is where I say something preachy about smoking and how I don’t like breathing in everyone’s second-hand smoke all day when I’m out trying to live and enjoy some fresh air.

HearingPro402:33 – Hat is now backwards… shit just got real.

4) Strong shoulder / weak hand – Legit… I’ll remember that in the next drive-by I do, thanks leprechaun.

This blog is no stranger to sticking spent casings in your ears.  I observed R. Lee Ermey using some for hearing protection, and also found a tutorial on how to accomplish it.

Makes me wish I would have thought of this idea, to deliver sound to the user, rather than mute everything.  According to Gizmodo, the earphones are made by a company called MUNITIO, and will apparently be sold for $250 each. They better sound damn good for that money.

Unless you are a massive company like apple, sony, google etc.. I never understood why you would want to talk about your products and create buzz before they are even available. Anyone that thinks these headphones are an awesome idea, would probably want to purchase them immediately and not have to keep checking the website for an update on the magical date they will be available.  Maybe the average consumer isn’t like me though.  I will have long forgotten about these within a couple of days.


After telling my FaceBook friends they could shoot my T.V. if the Saints beat the Redskins, they showed up in full force after the Saints won in OT 33-30.

R Lee Ermey from the History Channel show Lock & Load:




Making your own:

What I Did:
I started off with my favorite set of ear plugs The Com-fit AB corded ear plugs. DB 26 rating.

Then took my Px4 outside and fired 2 rounds into the hillside as to retrieve 2 spent .40 s&w casing (winchester 165 gr target ammo; 100 rnds $30 @ walmart). all my other brass i pawned at the gun shop for a few bucks.

Took a small nail; and hammer (because im too lazy to dig out my fathers reloading equipment) and gently taped, from the inside, removing the primer from both shells.

using a drill bit fed into the hole in the ear plug (ment for the cord) and put the ear plug into the casing, bit thru the primer hole, and filled it with hot glue from a glue gun. (WARNING CASING WILL BECOME HOT; use a vice or gloves when doing this step)

now on the .40 i had to drill the primer hole out a slight bit as it was too small for the cord to fit through. i then threaded the cord in thru the rear of the casing and viola…. spent casing ear plugs. novelty and hearing protection brought together as one.

Note: cord is NOT needed; but helpful to keep from loosing them. Also it helps secure the ear plug into the casing as it might slide back out after the glue settles (in testing it was rare but did happen; some super glue on top of this wouldn’t go amiss; however with the cord i don’t have that problem at all)

He’s Putin, and he wears his hearing protection however he feels like:


The gun he is pictured above appears to be a Makarov PM variation which is chambered in 9x18mm – wiki page


Another picture from the same range visit:


The above gun is a Stechkin APS – wiki page


Putin has become known as a real outdoors man in recent years, and is often pictured fishing, hunting, horseback riding, and also handling guns at various events such as this:

The Russian hardman took advantage of a tour of the Construction Design Bureau in Tula earlier this week to handle some of the merchandise on display – namely, several very menacing-looking guns. – LINK
