Music

I use a pair of electronic hearing protectors which you can plug in your phone or iPod. What music do you listen to while you're emptying your 870, AR, handgun, Uzi or whatever at the range? I must admit I like "Ride of the Valkyries" by Wagner. Used to great effect in the 7th Cavalry helicopter attack in Apocalyse Now. However some Metallica, Sabbath, Stones or Floyd goes down pretty well too.

Personally, I prefer not to pump extra noise in my ears. I like to listen to the report of my rounds as I'm firing. One squib stuck in the bore + a follow up shot while not paying attention can ruin somebody's day. Speaking from experience....had 2 squibs get stuck in my barrels on the same damned day. Put 2 revolvers out of commission until I could get them home and tap the rounds out. Pissed me off..it was factory ammo that wasn't that old. Anyway, those 2 boxes were retired from service.
