    In my case, I think the smacks around the ears I got from the old lady as I grew up from a wee snot til I left home did more damage than any rifle shot has.

    Earpro in Advertising

    I was born 50% loss both ears. Made do with out hearing aids once I left school. Pretty conscious of wearing ear pro whilst using chainsaws and open cab tractors. Recently being fitted with hearing aids again after 20 odd years of making do. I miss out on so much to do with hearing. Iíll wear hearing aids after work (.when I remember). Whenever I take them out I notice the loss. It sucks.

    Look after your hearing. You only get one set of ears.

    This, I believe is the main premise for the NRA trying to get suppressors easily and readily available in the US,....Its a good excuse if nothing else...


    I can come home to kiwi and get a suppressor without any hassle,..to get one here in Oregon,....its joke...6 months,and more hassle than a bull can shit...
    Iím sure the yanks used to think the same about our free standing pistol grips !!! , but yea whatís not to like about saving your ears , loosing some recoil and not spooking game so much .
    Really it should be highlighted a bit more with people starting out or as mentioned in advertising it would certainly validate the use of suppressors with the bureaucrats a bit more .

    I have hearing damage from shotguns at the age of 18 without ear pro. I know loads of half deaf people from the days when ear pro wasn’t a thing. If you can use it then use it. Once you know if you are a lucky one or susceptible one then it’s too late anyway. It’s got zero to do with being soft or needing to harden up. That is just ridiculous and ignorant.
