    I need to purchase some eye protection and electric Earmuffs. Just hoping that somebody could suggest some good ears and eyes. My budget is around 75 dollars total. I have seen the Howard Leight Sport Electronic Earmuff and they have some great reviews, but is 22 decibles going to be ok in the range. I want to hear commands if the safety officer says something, but don't want to hurt my ear's. And need some glasses, that arnt to cheap. Thanks for your time.

    You can't go wrong with the ear bud style ear protection. You will still be able to hear commands while wearing these. Try a hardware store for some durable safety glasses.

    Lots of people, myself included, have the muffs you mentioned. They work well for handgun or 22 but I wear them over foam plugs for rifle use (depending on the handgun of course). The big advantage is being able to hear commands easily even with the foam plugs in (except when they cut out during a shot)

    For glasses the impact rated safety glasses from the hardware store should work well. They are what I use and they keep the brass & grit out well enough. Never tested them against a ricochet or kaboom and hope not to..

    Should be able to do those 3 for $75 easily.
