My idea isn't just to enjoy: I definitely want to be proficient with whatever pistol I decide to carry for personal defense.

Just isn't moving fast enough for me, but I'm a loner. I don't have any shooting friends or know anyone in the craft, so I am reliant on counter guys and lots of internet reading.

It's encouraging to know I can get over the uneasiness. Eventually, I'd like to be able to recognize the sounds of different calibers from different weapons (if that's possible). What I mean is that I want to be that "into" things that I have that much experience and confidence.

Just an idea but I know it has worked in several different situations as I use it myself when my shooting gets sloppy. Get a .22 cal rifle and shoot with it for a few sessions. Maybe several of your friends can just have a .22 day at the range. .22 cal rifles and handguns offer good practice. You can learn gun control,trigger control, and even learn to get use to the noise of other guns going off near by. I wouldn't be too concerned as even us old veterans will jump when some guy shoots a big bore near us. You just need more time at the range. Good luck and be safe. All guns are loaded, always.

Default Hearing Protection

It is possible that you need a better pair of hearing protection maybe some of the electronic ones. You could have extra sensitive hearing which could cause this problem. Just a thought. Does thunder cause this same problem?

Thunder and other such noises don't bother me...used to when I was a kid, but I grew out of that

Loud engines (no exhaust, straight headers, backfiring) used to be the same...got over that as well

Probably need more experience and I'll be OK.
