Sensible Self Defense

3 Reasons Using Electronic Ear Protection for Shooting is Best
Concealed Carry Inc.

"Shooting guns comes with inherent dangers. One of these is damage to our ears. Hearing loss is cumulative, and does not heal on its own. So wearing hearing protection is extremely important.
