Pro Ears Predator Gold Electronic Ear Muffs

We as humans tend to enjoy loud noises as long as we’re the ones making them. Some great examples would be blasting your favorite tune in the car, fireworks, a motorcycle (Harleys for me), and lastly, a loud gun.  A “loud” gun?  Yes!  With a home-defense or even an EDC weapon, the shock and awe of a thunderous boom could be seen as a benefit when it comes to intimidating your attacker.

The first multi-tools were heavy and bulky. But as with any innovation, there is always room for improvement. This is why we have decided to take Coast Product’s model C2899B LED Micro Multi-Tool for a test drive. My initial impression of the Micro Multi-Tool was that it had a solid feel.
