  1. i know in home defense, safety and survival is paramount. but discharging a handgun (or any firearm) indoors must be absolutely brutal on our ears. permanent damage? i already suffer from constant ringing..(motorcycles, and guns all my life).

    anyone have to do it before?

    There are people who've lost some degree of hearing from firing in close quarters in self-defense.

    But if they hadn't fired, and allowed themselves to be murdered while they hesitated because they were worried about hearing damage, how much would they hear in the grave?

    To draw in collected experiences, you'll need to post the same question in "Tactics and Training."

    best,
