For the last week, my left ear has been ringing. Nothing happened aside from the usual 22 cal starter pistol.
On the phone this week people sounded like they were breathing helium.
I guess it's time to check out some of these hearing protectors.
Or maybe it's too late.
Hello I have specially designed rubber stuff with added foam. It works great for me.

Yesterday had some in laws come in and we were talking about guns. I got my 40 cal. pistol out and he got his. I lost one ear plug and shot any ways. Cant hear good out of right ear now. It was kinda embarresing when I met customers today and kept saying "What did you say"
Now I got a real bad ringing noise.
Gonna re read this thread more later cause I gotta do somthing (SP?)
I bought these off amazon a few months ago and I've been using them regularly.

They are perfect for training. Amplifies quiet, and deadens loud.
I damaged mine years ago, Guess I still havnt learned. Cant hear some sounds on hearing test.
Doc told me if ringing goes away, Great. If not live with it!!!
If I shoot a pistol it hurts the ears bad (as in pain)
Shotgun doesnt hurt to much
What do our millatary folks do??
I love my Peltor Tactical Pro Electronic headset, I turn the mic way up when I'm manning a short gun station so I can eves drop on the judges. I wish our club could purchase these for all our gunners, nothing more frustrating than screaming into the radio to get a gun's attention who can't hear because their ears are blocked with foam.
Ask the vets, army and marines, what they wear. Combat ear plugs are what I wore a few years ago. They work well to allow you to hear normal conversation, but close up when you get hit by the high decibels
Combat ear plugs are decent. Sure fire makes a good set of ear plugs that work the same. But the best overall experience has been with Pro Ears gold series muffs
I just picked up some of the custom molded plugs. I went to an audiologist to get the forms done and for $200 he got me two pairs of plugs. That is the same price to a little cheaper than buying them online and making my own molds. I would definitely suggest going to the doctor, when making the molds there is no way I would have gotten far enough into my ear to make a proper mold.
Thanks to all of you for the responses!
