I was once told that the high pitched ringing you here after being exposed to noises, such as rifle fire, without hearing protection, those are the frequencies you won't here anymore; just listen to them as they fade away. I have complete high frequency lose in both ears; I left it all on a hill called Tinajitas in Dec of 89. It does not come back; protect what you have while you still have it. It only netted me 10% disability when I retired, but I do get free hearing aids from the VA, not that I use them, just ask my wife.:D
    Confirmation on the high-pitched ringing.....this is true and proven.

      Man, I had almost forgotten the ringing part. I've had that so long I'd gotten used to it. Now that you all mention it, I can hear it again!

          beat you to death with it because it is empty.

            well, my hearing is finally coming back. I promise, from now on, I will wear hearing protection.

              I had to put down a horse last November. I was so upset,
              that I forgot to put on ear protection. Yeah, real life isn't
              like the movies.

              I fired 2 rounds and my ears seemed to ring for hours.

                  Very good, I am glad for you!
                  I wasnt so lucky after putting 25 rds through a 12g sighting it in at a friends house I have permanent loss in my right ear and a defening ring when the room is silent, but that was when I was young and stupid and you never think youll live this long at that age, but you do.
