      Habben, to answer your question about the .22, yes it is damaging your hearing. Wear hearing protection.

        The last few years I have been wearing muffs and plugs. Before that just muffs. Up until I was out of college I didn't wear either and didn't know anyone that did. My hearing isn't bad but I do have a little tinnitus.

          so, just to be clear. I damaged my ears by shooting my .22 WITH ear plugs in my ears? I am wearing ear protection, but its not good enough? guess I will go with muffs and plugs next time.

            Ohhhh! I seemed to have read your question wrong. I suppose it won't be bad for them like shooting a big game cartridge is, but it still isn't good for them. Yes if you got them tested there may be a very VERY slight difference, but I wouldn't worry about it too much. cheers
