would these block enough sound to go shooting?

They have an attenuation of 20db which is not safe for shooting... I've found they are just barely enough at a loud rock or metal concert, which I think is around 20db less than a firearm going off.
EDIT: These are really marketed towards music and construction.

You can find shooting earbuds that work the same way as these, but Etymotic Research I don't think makes them.
I know because I had a pair and I used them while trap-shooting. I could hear everybody talk, but the gunshots were muffled by the earbuds.

Etymotic Research do have earplugs for gun sport use, and they will allow you to hear speech. They're active though (electronic) and cost about $300, which make them a completely different beast.
