sure, for most guns. it's what I use most of the time. just make sure the db rating is as high as you can get. I shop around for 31db NRR plugs. most are 25-28db NRR.

that's about the same rating for most earmuffs. the only better protection is earplugs + earmuffs. the ratings don't add so it only nets you a 5-10db NRR additional. a 28 plug and a 28 earmuff would give you about a 34db NRR.
