A Word of Advice on Hearing Protection
I picked this great tidbit up somewhere along the line, and I feel itís worth repeating here every so often for the new members, and for those that may have missed it. This simple practice can prevent serious hearing damage. I have adopted this advice as well.
As we all know, a gunshot can cause permanent hearing damage, especially in an enclosed area, such as your home.
Keep a pair of electronic headphones next to your nighttime gun. If there should be an intruder, slip on the headphones before you investigate. Not only will the sounds be amplified to help you locate the intruder, but if you should have to defend yourself with your gun, the headphones will clamp down on the blast and youíre hearing will be spared. Also, if you have family members nearby tell them to cover their ears.
