the chance of hearing damage from different guns is pretty good. The damage is accumulative each time you are exposed to the noise you with do some damage. over time there will be a change in your hearing. The surrounding and distance from the shot will impact the amount of damage. If you are in a gun fight and not wearing ear protection there will be some hearing loss. I keep a set of auto canceling ear muffs on the night stand just in case.
Finch, I don't like guns. Reese, Me either but if someone has to have guns I'd rather it be me. (Person of Interest).
