No, because of where the center of gravity is located. You'd have to add a bunch of weight to the tip.
I know how to help you because I have broken every rule in the book.

I think it's worth looking into. I think potential issues you'll have to figure out is pricing, availability and consistency of the ear plug's diameter.
Keep in mind that I think the foam blanks most people use for slugs/stefans only costs a few cents (for the raw material only), so unless you can get the earplugs for under 8 cents per pair, I doubt this is something most people will be able to afford to use, at least when compared to slugs/stefans.

I don't know about eight cents a pair, but just a quick amazon search gets you eight cents a plug:
If it turns out they offer some kind of benefit in durability/accuracy/barrel fit or something, that's not too awful. Of course you also have to consider the cost of whatever you use for weight, so it might end up being a bad deal anyway. Maybe a decent idea for someone who just hates cutting their own foam?

most foam ear plugs have a waxy coating on the outside to prevent all the nastiness in your ears from soaking in, this coating ends up a little sticky after awhile of being handled and exposed to elements and moisture which is why they're made to be disposable. after a day of nerfing and being handled and shot they'd very likely get stuck in your barrels almost every time.
trans as shit because fuck you

Being over priced, disposable, and overall more effort, whats the point of making what you're proposing as compared to slugs?
