M3 .50, No Ear Protection (video)

I guess he could be using some skimpy earplugs, but the look on his face says he's not...

You're right

No eyes or ears...

I bet his ears are still ringing

That thing runs faster than the M2s I have been around.

Judging from the trigger man's facial expression, he wasn't wearing ear plugs... He didn't look to enthusiastic after the second burst.

He picked a strange time to leave the muffs at home. The M3 sounds like a railroad disaster. Loud.

This guy has tons more videos, some of them extremely entertaining.

And I am sure being only 20 feet from a hard wall made it that much more enjoyable?????
I hope he remembers this day when he gets in his 60's and the constant ringing he hears is not a buzzer going off but the damage,,, just ask me,,, I know.
But mine was from a jet engine.

guns are loud without earmuffs but not wearing them helps you hear if theres any people coming.
If you fire a couple of rounds without ear plugs/muffs, you hear nothing. If you wear ear protection, you will certainly hear more after firing those rounds than without them.

The M3 was a version designed for aircraft use, with a faster rate of fire (up to 1200 rpm).

I shot 75 rounds through a Mosin Nagant M38...with out ear protection...my ears where ringing for ove a day, I could barly stand it, it gave me a head ache it was so bad. I dont even want to think about letting off as much ammo as he did with that M3 and not wearing ear protection...what an idiot!

I have to ask... why? Doesn't sound like the most enjoyable thing to do at the range...
