M72- If I'm not mistaken, especially in mobile homes they use materials that are sound absorbant.
Personally, I almost always have earplugs on hand, i ride with an open-faced brain bucket and I value my hearing. Once i get my cwp in Utah, I probably wouldn't have time to remove them.

If you always were them is one thing but if you have time to dig them out of a case or your pocket. You had time to run. And about becoming over taken by a hostel crowd you would have a lot of liabilty becuase not everyone in the crowd is dangerous. One missed shot and you would be screwwed.

Does anyone know what our soldiers do in the battlefield? I know it's a little off topic, but I was wondering if they wear hearing protection when they head out into the battlefield, knowing that they may very well get into a fire fight.

shooting a 50BMG without earplugs is terrible!!!

going deaf really sucks but it could have its advantages
Years ago my best friends Dad accidentally discharged his Winchester model 70 in 270 win. inside a vehicle (57 Ford) with all the windows rolled up and I have suffered from tinnitus ever since and no it didn't sound loud it was more like someone slapping me on both ears with the palm of their hands! I seriously doubt inside a room is much better.
Having said that when it comes to self defense NO EARPLUGS!

Haha about ten years ago I was an idiot my daughter,ex-wife,myself are sitting in my camper they're watching tv and I'm cleaning a Taurus 9mm for some ungodly reason I put in the mag rack one and squeeze it off. I know why I did it I was use to checking my slide but,I never put the mag in. Can you say complacent anyways I blow a hole in the roof and go deaf for about five minutes witch during this time I look at my daughter she is screaming but I can't hear her I also get the piss slapped out of me by the ex. I wish I woulda had ear plugs that day.

Wrong, shooting inside a structure is much louder than shooting outside. The sound bounces around inside and is magnified. I shot a stray cat with my savage 22-250 from the kitchen counter just inside the back door and the noise was at least twice as long if not louder.

It was probably quieter in an old mobile home because the walls are as thin as tissue paper, the sound just went through like a hot knife in butter. Do it in a stick built house with 1/2" sheetrock on the walls and 5/8" on the ceilings.

Soldiers don't wear them in combat...so if you're planning on hopping out into a riot, you shouldn't need them either. I'd rather have a ballistics vest or plate carrier stashed in the car..
