Nightstand Hearing Protection

What preparations or plans do you have for that deafening shot you might have to take inside your home?

I got a set of Peltor shooting earmuffs for Christmas. You can turn up the volume and hear even better yet when there's any loud noise it cancels it out. I think I'm going to take them out of my range bag and put them in my nightstand drawer.

None, I never thought about it before. It would definitely be needed though. I made the mistake of shooting rat from my kitchen window once with a .22 and my ears were ringing for 2 hrs afterward. Now that it brought up I will be putting some ear muffs on nightstand and ear plugs with the guns stashed around the house.

Never gave it much thought. I believe it will be just the same as shooting a Deer, never have heard the shot nor felt the recoil. Too much adrenaline flowing I guess.

None.

Nor do I walk around Walmart with shooting muffs just in case... nor do I want muffs strapped to my head in a hand to hand fight which you cannot predict at the outset of an encounter with a bad guy

Do you see law enforcement strapping muffs to their head before engaging a bad guy whether inside or out?

No thanks.

If you've already got some hearing loss, firing a shot inside of a room of your house is definitely going to do more permanent damage. Your ears will be ringing so loud you won't be able to hear anybody on the other end of the phone. Not only you but anybody else in that room behind you is going to suffer the same. Something to think about. My earmuffs are now in my bedroom nightstand. It only takes two seconds to put them on and turn up the volume.

Maybe I will just stop trimming the hair in my ears and let that muffle the sound.

Firing your SideArm in a warehouse or in the woods or in a field would not be too bad. But I'm willing to bet with the close walls and low ceiling inside your bedroom and hallway would double the perceive sound of the report. And some folks use a 357 magnum as their nightstand gun. WHAAAAT!

I currently don't have any nightstand hearing protection either. In fact I don't have any fancy electronic hearing pro at all yet. With that being the case, I don't want to be at a hearing disadvantage with standard hearing protection on. I've considered a suppressor for that purpose, but decided it's not worth the cost, effort, and supposed image it would portray in a legal hearing (maneuverability isn't too much of a concern in my situation).

Eventually I might consider a place for hearing pro if I get an outstanding set that would work for that purpose, but it certainly isn't a key concern for me a this point.
