The Ultimate Guide for Choosing an Effective Shooting Ear Protection

Why do you need shooting ear protection? Did you know the sound of gunfire is the most hazardous non-occupational noise that Americans are exposed to? Exposure to noise greater than 140 dB can permanently damage hearing. Almost all firearms create noise that is over the 140-dB level. A small .22-caliber rifle can produce noise around 140 dB, while big-bore rifles and pistols can produce sound over 175 dB. Firing guns in a place where sounds can reverberate, or bounce off walls and other structures, can make noises louder and increase the risk of hearing loss.
