To touch on the auditory exclusion, studies show that, during a lethal force encounter, you will not "hear" the shots. Yes, the DBs will still cause damage, but you would not be "startled" by the firing gun. So, perhaps his time would be better spent in preparing to put rounds on target as quickly as accurately possible, and looking for good hearing aids. For more info on this, and other physiological responses to expect during a fight for your life scenario, may I suggest Lt. Col. Dave Grossman's books "On Killing" and "On Combat". Great stuff in both books!

wear em for all guns-even 'just a 22s'.

22s generate about 130-135 dB-about the same as a jet engine.

44s ????
