Now, 2 years later I shoot a 9mm with no hearing protection. And my ears ring. My ears will ring if I shoot anything more than a 22lr. Do I still have hearing loss from the shotgun you think?
By not using hearing protection you are setting yourself up for serious damage to your hearing. Get some good ear plugs and muffs and wear both while shooting.

My hearing is shot: There is constant loud ringing in my ears and severe hearing damage from my EOD/UXO career and from shooting guns for decades without hearing protection. Hearing aids do not help.

The young grandson of a good friend has very serious, irreparable hearing and nerve damage from firing 20 rounds through a short barreled .243 Winchester rifle.
