So, I recently shot a gun inside of a house without ear pro, and my fucking world lit up. It was like a flashbang without the flash.
I'm seriously considering getting earpro of some kind that would be usable in a tactical sense. Does anyone with maybe military/police experience (or otherwise) clearing buildings have input on this?
I know exactly what you mean anon, ex mil myself with the unfortunate experience of shooting indoors with no ear pro. I keep a pair of these hanging on my bedpost for this exact situation. Great for the price and you still have situational awareness because of the amplification.
Chainsaw helmet with strobe headlamp or bust.
Peltor comtacs are pretty good. If sit well on your head they muffle sound pretty well while you are able to hear everything around you.
I'm sure there are cheaper active earpros around tho
This is the only legit answer to these threads.
The fucking last thing you should be doing is fumbling around with ear protection while someone is in your house who you think you might have to shoot.
If you're that worried about it drop the cash on a suppressor.
Suppressors don't silence guns and it still required that you wear earspro when shooting with it. Don't listen to the suppressor lobbyists saying you'll have trouble figuring out ear plugs in a tense situation. If you're too retarded for that then you shouldn't have a gun in the house to begin with.
is there any legal ramifications for using a suppressor in a defensive shooting?
i know the cops usually take the gun after you shoot the guy for "evidence". is there any chance of seeing your can ever again? any chance to ever get another stamp in the future?
I am not a lawyer, but it was explained to me by mine that there are no extra legal ramifications.
It will be taken as evidence, assuming you are not criminally convicted for the shooting you will receive it back.
Yes there is a chance you will not see it again, if it was not a good shoot and you are convicted of murder or felony manslaughter, you will not get to play with your funs again.
If you are not convicted of any wrong doing, a defensive shoot should have no bearing on future NFA purchases.
