    I tried to use ear protection whenever I use shotgun for water fowls and in the shooting range, but while hunting deer, half of the time I didn't bother to put on any protection. I know, for the sake of my own hearing, I should use them no matter where.

    My hearing in 1969 wasn't what it was in 1968............

    I've been shooting for over 60 years, and have always used hearing protection. My father insisted when he taught me to shoott. I still have excellent hearing. Many of my friends don't need hearing protection because they're already deaf. For the last 25 years I've used electronic protectors which allow very close to "normal" hearing with good directional capability.

    Lou Boyd,


    How fortunate you are. 60 years ago, there wasn't a lot of concern given to
    protecting the hearing. The emphasis was and still is firearm safety first.

    "Sounds" like my story Lou! 35 years in an industrial work environment and hunting\shooting for the past 50 years, all with proper hearing protection...still have a full range of hearing sensitivity that test between 0-10db!

    My motto has always been,"Protect What You Got"!

    I don't anymore. I hunt with a hearing safe suppressor. Way better solution for me. I don't have to take my hearing aids out!
