I have the Pro Ears Slim Golds too. A bit better for shooting rifle than the big pairs but they work well and don't clip like some of the less expensive brands.

I don't recommend the Preditors...

Go fondle one, or better yet, rent and shoot one if you can. I bought an LB Stinger which is CCO sized, to replace my Kimber thinking it's the perfect carry gun. Aside from the fact that the thing...

With the right rig it's possible that you will get used to the weight. A lot of folks do. I couldn't get used to it so I carry a 26oz Commander sized gun. Any of those you mentioned would make fine...

If you are loading for multiple guns and don't want to disassemble a gun every time you load they can be handy. I gauge almost every round I load and most of the rounds I catch are torn/bent cases,...

My wife's been carrying her EMP for six years. It's got somewhere around 8k rounds and gets about 400 rounds a month. She really like the EMP.

What you see is what was tested. Guns are different and many guns, like my range gun, work just fine with FMJ rounds all the way from 1.248 to 1.275 with 1.260 being the sweet spot that works in all...

It doesn't take that many for some. I bought a LW Champion years ago for cheap where a guy was trying to jam JHPs up the ramp in the first couple hundred rounds. The grooves were so deep that it...

Here is a pic I took of one at 7500 rounds and it pretty much looks the same at almost 15k just a little less black. While it looks bad, it feels pretty smooth to the touch and so, more importantly,...

I'd say you are. Anyone that shoots any volume will eventually get an out of spec round, damaged brass, or have a weakened spring. I'm pretty lucky but out of the 1100-1200 rounds a month my wife and...

I'd suggest renting a gun with a laser and doing some drills or, better yet, borrowing one if possible at an outdoor range. Not everyone does well with lasers especially moving. I tried one in a...

All depends on whether you want the laser, checkering, and sights. The base gun should be the same and you can get upgraded sights on the TLE and save some money.

I've been shooting both bull and bushing barreled 4" guns for 15 years and I don't see any performance or reliability differences. Personal preference especially in a carry gun.
