    Its the reason my wife is hollaring at me daily to " turn that dang TV down I can't hear myself think ". Growing up in Mtns we never thought about or was taught about wearing hearing protection I was probably 30 before I ever did or seen anyone else doing it

    Yes its in the opposite ear and they have done testing here with a company to check decibal readings all over.
    I was halfway being sarcastic with my original post, I have no doubt mine came from shooting guns.

    Just wanted to make sure. That's my job, conducting noise & chemical exposure assessments for companies. So I know how the game is played!!

    they may as well put off their gun health crisis bs for 4 years.

    the thought of getting shot is causing folks to stress out thus the CDC needs to have control of your weapon.

    I did see this theory before this was posted. i thought it was fake news.

    my vietnam vet hunting buddy who cant hear a turkey at 150 yds would beg to differ on hearing loss from gunfire.
