I don't think my wife would like me practicing in our house, she doesn't like bullet holes in the wall. As for hearing protection, don't know if the BG will let me put my ear plugs in before I send him to the afterlifeI will ask though
I hate to be blunt, but this is a stupid suggestion. :scratch:SandersB said:When was the last time, if ever, you shot your home defense weapon in a low light, close quarters (like a hallway or bedroom) situation with no hearing protection?
Do you know how the noise and muzzle flash will affect your subsequent movement ability? Or how it will affect your ability to detect what's going on around you after the shooting stops?
Ringing ears and spots before the eyes make quite a change to your environment.
While I am an advocate of hearing protection, if you can set up such a situation, shooting a magazine full while unprotected will help take the shock off those first shots under duress.
Believe it or not, I know people who have never shot without hearing protection and don't really know just how loud (or quiet in some situations) their primary self defense weapon is.
Some will argue muzzle flash can be reduced to the point of being a non-issue through special low-flash powders, but not everyone uses those powders.
Just something else to ponder in your self/home defense preparations.
OPPS My mistake. I must have been reading a diffrent thread and saw the listing of similar threads below. I should have looked at the date before I posted. I have stumbled on old threads before but checked out the date before posting. Checking the similar threads can get a person if he isn't paying attention.Mus said:Wow a 3 year thread resurrection Silvercorvette?!?! Folks we have a new World Record!!!
