Defensive shooting and hearing loss.
I know this is considered a borderline rude question to ask so Iím applying some strict parameters to my question. Iím looking for people who have been involved in a shooting either in close quarters, indoors or some other confined space. I want to know very specifically
Number of shots fired
Did you experience auditory exclusion?
After the adrenalin rush did you experience deafness?
And finally did you suffer permanent hearing loss as a result ?
I have never fired a weapon in close quarters but 10 years as a 13B has left a very definite mark on my hearing and I never remember that cannon being that loud when I was right next to it.
I had a ND in a bare concrete room when I was 12 and I still rememebr how loud that .25 sounded.
Several years later my roomate's girlfriend decided to unload her .38 into our kitchen wall and the shots sounded like pop gun fire. My other roomate actually yelled at her to keep it down because he was trying to sleep.
