Well I always practice with heating protection and last summer I was shooting and had went and checked my target put my ear muffs above my ears while walking out and back to the bench . Sat right down sighted cocked and wham. Yep you guessed it blasted my ears . I swear I couldnt hear for about a minute made my left ear ring. (I already have some damage ) man it just made the rest of my afternoon suck a little and it distracted me.

If I had to take a guess Mr. Taffin has a significant amount of hearing loss. I have been shooting since I was a kid … 9 or 10 somewhere in that area. Killed my first buck at 14 so yeah hearing protection wasnt a thing anyone thought or knew much about or taught really. Hearing loss awareness is taught much more now. Myboldest hunts and thats one of the first things I taught her

I use 3m TEP 100s and the wife EEP 100s - these are in the ear active hearing (think military grade hearing aids)
I also sport a pair of comtac lll and a couple pairs of Sordin pros (over the head and neck band).

When wearing active hearing protection, I have been known to forget having them on.

I have a pair of in the canal ‘E-muffs’ wireless from Caldwell, they are bluetooth so connect to my phone too. They enhance/amplify hearing as well as protect, so I wear them ‘patrolling’ or hunting. They work ok. On the range I wear the worms and the over the ear E-Muffs turned all the way up when away from the line, all the way down/off on the line.

Who is older (before ear pro’ was found to be so important) and doesn’t have hearing loss? I was superman as were many of us.

Taffin also has nerve damage, or is it arthritis(?) in his wrists/arms. He lays it onto shooting big boomers. That’s why I wouldn’t shoot more than 20 rounds out of my biggest handcannon in one “sitting”. The .308 not so much.

For competition since I shoot SBRs I use these (below) and they’re pretty good. They stay out of the way like no ear pro’ at all. My biggest complaint is they were advertised as having longer life per charge as they actually do. I get 4 hours then they’re dead. I’ve had them for years now.

Yes , I have shot as many as 25 but 20 is my usual also. 40 gr. Of H110 will light up your life after a few rounds

Why I like the 308; it will slay anything in North America and you could shoot it all day if you have enough ammo. Especially our braked gasser, such a soft shooter you can see the hits, but that beast is loud. Not as loud as the braked magnums, but it’s still obnoxious.

I like these a charge last about 8hrs. They are good for handguns up to 44mag. Anything bigger I use muffs.
