Whenever I go shooting, before I leave, I ALWAYS shoot 1 clip of 45acp; 1 cylinder of 38spl; 1 cylinder of 357mag; 1 clip of 32acp; and 3 shots of 12 gauge. And I ALWAYS do this WITHOUT hearing protection. WITHOUT safety glasses. I make it as "REAL WORLD" as possible.
Well, you'll probably never find yourself in a "real world" shooting situation, but if you keep this up, you may well find yourself with a "real world" hearing aid and eye patch.
