Anybody fired off a round w/o hearing protection?
Out of curiosity, have any of you fired off a round w/o hearing protection with any gun other than a .22LR? I've been around loud stuff all my life but have never shot any centerfire gun (rifle or handgun) without my ears on, whether inside or outside. Wondering if you lost hearing for a while, still have ringing in your ears, etc. I presume you probably regretted it...
If you did, why the heck did you do it?
shooting w/o hearing protection
a few months ago I bought a new 380 Walther pk and when I got home I was so excited I loaded it a shot it twice w/o my protection. Believe me I will not forget again. I can't believe how loud my ears rang for about 15 minutes. But it did eventually go away.:aargh4:
