I can't imagine shooting at game without any protection - I would be deaf for several minutes. I fired my S&W .44mag under the range roof when I forgot my ear protection and could not hear for hours.
    Gary, you shoot a .44mag under a metal roof and let me know how you feel.

      Just had to get on to my son in law for not making my grandson wear hearing protection while shooting a .22. I thought he was smarter than that obviously I was wrong. I usually don’t wear any hunting. This year I will be taking them since the boys are going. And I believe that I must set a good example for them. I will wear them time permitting when the opportunity for a shot at game presents it’s self.

        My first time on an indoor range was Shooters Palace in downtown Fort Worth.
        Never again!
        The concussion was absolutely unbelievable!
        I go to a nearby covered range. That's bad enough!

          Jim, If I was wearing "ear plugs and electronic Walker Muffs" that should of done the job for protection. ?

            Only partially, still too much noise.
