maybe the 'test' measured sound downrange at 100 yards or something.
or maybe without a muzzlebreak.
I know that a 9mm is not smart to shoot without hearing protection but it's not totally painful. But standing right behind an AR with a muzzlebreak takes both earplugs and earmuffs.
I guess earmuffs on the bedside table would be good and then you have the option if you think you have time.
