    It was an honest question he made and there is nothing wrong with it. They say the only stupid question is the one not asked, so he asked and got many good responses. Being rude only causes fights on these forums and makes a good community turn bad. If your only here to be an ass please find another forum. Most of us actualy like to be helpful.

    You could leave a pair of electronic ear protection by your bed,

    The electronic hear protection are awesome, you can hear normal conversations, bumps, it only muffles sounds (like gunshots) over 85 dec.

    Cabela's: Radians Pro-Amp™ Electronic Muffs

    There are cheaper pairs on Ebay and other sites. It's nice to be able to have a conversation with others at the range but not hear the gunshots.

    No, mr slayer I was not being rude. I simply found it silly that someone would be worried about a little ringing in the ears when they or their families life maybe in danger. Does an LEO say hey wait a minute while I put on my safety glasses and hearing protection? I think not. Do you think the perp put his on before entering your house? Well? And I find your reply to be pompous beyond belief, but this is your forum. I find this forum, from this thread to be useless in the real world. Too bad I won't see your reply as I will find another forum that might help me learn something useful. ASS. I guess that I can use that as you have. HAVE A NICE DAY. And the CIB, donít you get that out of AIT. And try spellcheck.

    It's not my forum, it’s owned by someone else. I just respect everyone who asks a question enough to answer it to the best of my ability without being rude.

    I am betting that the OP (likely just like you) has never been involved in a shooting of any kind, so the OP, like many other people on here like to ask questions about situations before they happen so they are better prepared to deal with the situation instead of learning on the fly when things ARE happening.
    Unlike the OP however, there is ALWAYS someone who thinks they are God’s gift to a firefight and know everything about it. I am guessing that’s where you come in.
    If you actually read ALL of the posts that people have posted in reply to the OP’s question, there were some people who actually have hearing problems and the hearing protection with enhancement would be a good idea for them to stage a set of the electronic ear pro/enhancers next to their gun.

    As far as my CIB goes, if you or anyone else would like to see my awards and NCOERs (evaluation reports) please feel free to stop on by any time as long as you think you'd be able to read them.

    My responding to you is done unless you have some helpful information to share.

    CIB stands for Combat Infantrymans Badge and is awarded to individuals who have put their life on the line to protect their country and jackasses like you. It is awarded to infantrymen (11B) who have been in combat. That means they have been under fire from unfriendly forces who have tried to kill them. I am a Vietnam Vet and I still wear mine proudly.

    Thank you Buckslayer for your service.

I had reason to fire a warning shot from a shotgun in the great outdoors years ago. My ears rang for an hour afterwards. The thought of firing the SPX in a confined space, like a hallway, is what prompted my question.
    you will DEFINITELY blow out both of your ear drums if you fire a shotgun inside your hope without ear protection.

    I disagree purely because I've fired close to about 300 rounds when breaching doors in Iraq. As long as your not in a sustained firefight inside your house with a shotgun, one or two shots inside your house won't blow your ear drums out. If that were the case I wouldn't be able to hear a thing.

    Thank you too BB for your service! Vietnam Vets are the very people I tell some of my former soldiers/friends who are having issues with combat and/or reintegration to talk to. The stuff you guys went through was a hell of a lot worse than what we went through and the information and help you all are able to pass on about reintegration and dealing with combat isn't something that some psychologist type can give them!

    Well I certainly won't argue with you and your experience.
    Thank you for your insight. Much appreciated.

    I should have added that your ears WILL ring for a while though!

    In all honesty if they would have made some very small electronic ear pro (small enough to wear while wearing our helmets) then I would have likely used them. BUT they would have to not block my normal hearing prior to any shooting.

    Like I said before though, if this is in my house where I know what squeaks and what doesn't, I want to be able to hear everything! I'd like to be able to finish this thing in one or two shots so I don't have to have a sustained firefight in my house and end up with more problems than just my hearing.
