It Was An Accident... No, Really!
I've already determined that earmuffs in the $20-$30 price range are out of the picture. I've read too many negative reviews relating to bad noise attenuation, electronic feedback, bad frequency issues, and worst of all, some do not shut off the microphone until after the gunshot is heard by the user. That's a deal breaker for me. After all, what's the point of electronic earmuffs if they do not shut off a gunshot blast before it reaches the internal speakers?!
Anyway, I was on Amazon.com and went through the process of purchasing, just so I can see how much it would cost to ship to my house. When I clicked away, I must've accidentally hit the enter key or clicked on the confirmation. I had closed the page before it refreshed and said "confirmed." Of course, the confirmation email came, but for some reason it filtered into my junk mail folder. I guess these muffs wanted to be bought. It wasn't until my wife told me - a few days later - that I bought them. Of course, I went upstairs to check my computer and sure enough, there was a confirmation email in the junk mail folder, LOL!
So, my new earmuffs are on their way. Like it or not, here they come.
