    I use the Peltor Sport Tac 500 ear pro and 9/10 they work like a champ, but once in a while I have to contend with heavier than usual wind (heavy for S. Fl so like 10-15mph). As today, it was blowing such that I got that wuuussshhh sound in my mic, anybody know of a way to tame that down a little so I can hear impacts. At 700 it was fine, but > k it wasn't happening.

    Is your set possibly missing the foam wind covers over the mics?

    My Howard Leights worked fine today, but I think the wind picked up a little after we left.

    Get some fuzzy craft fabric and attach it over the mic.

    We had to get out there.
    Just finished a Rim-X for Rebecca and we also brought our middle boy and his GF.
    Had Matthew on the 800 IPSC and he finished off with a head shot on it using my 6-BR.

    Rebecca's new toy is a hammer with SK standard plus.

    It was windy AF today. Wish I could have gotten out.
    I thought it was a good chance to train in less than ideal conditions, I just wish that I would have been able to distinguish hits. I've been thinking about donating a couple of MS shot markers for that very reason

    Yeah, that was us.
    Had to leave and get some food into the teenagers before they started eating the benches.😂

    Rebecca and I went out there again today and met up with @lash and his brother Bob, @8pointer
    @DustBun and his wife Carolyn

    Another windy day of shooting, but it sure beats watching football. 🙂


    Did you figure out the wind sound on your ear pro?

    Newer paint on the steel would help a lot.
    It's been brought up. A lot...
    I live less than 20 minutes away if you ever need a spotter.

    That wind was quite the challenge today glad we went. Great to meet DustBun and his wife. BBQ food coma.....what great way to saddle up the Turkey Day weekend. Your girl is a shooter....we are in trouble.

    It was fun. Although the wind was really messing up my hair. :D (What's left of it anyway.) Traffic was fun from Tampa going back to Ocala. Happy Thanksgiving all.
