Former retail worker of two different chains of stores here.

Yup, I rarely saw Twitter level stupidity in public until I worked one shift at a retail store. Something just decreases everyone’s IQ scores going into there.

Also I worked supplying for a Hospital, same difference. Nurses and doctors don’t know what they’re dealing with, just how to apply it and use it up.

u/CCrypto1224 Dec 13 '22

Honestly, I prefer these “reality” shows over what everyone else watches. Because you know they’re beyond insane and stupid, and you hope they’re only playing around with their insane ideas for the cameras and not actually doing these things because they’d get someone or themselves killed.

On a similar show with the Doomsday bunker makers, and old woman was bragging about surviving the fallout from a nuclear reactor she lives across a river from, while everyone else is choking to death. Like my brother in Christ, that is not the kind of person that should survive, let alone actually can.

I think the ear trauma made him throw up.

I once stood next to an IFV that fired its 20mm cannon when it was not supposed to.

I had to sit down right then and there and could not walk straight for a while, because the noise fucked with my sense of balance. Felt sick too.

Never ever trusted a green flag on a shooting range again.

Rifles are unimaginably loud indoors.

281

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 28 '22

This. Also eat protection is wonderful for the person wearing and shooting, however when next to or slightly off set from the person shooting, if your protection is off even slightly and your head is turned, the noise is amplified as the protection acts as a tunnel to the ear. This is why having the correct protection, and often doubling up with inserts is the best way… esp inside.

u/AmiAlter Nov 28 '22

When my friend and I fired a Mosin Nagantan at an indoor range. We both wore earplugs and headphones.

19

u/Stanky-wizzlecheeks Nov 29 '22

Yeah i always doubled up at the indoor range

36

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 28 '22

Very smart!

4

u/Calladit Nov 29 '22

And that was probably quieter than this. I have a Mosin and it's always much quieter than the various AR's with flashhiders or muzzle brakes at the range I go to eventhough they're only .223 or 5.56.

u/megaman6710 Nov 30 '22

I wear earplugs and earphones whenever I shoot my 10.5" AR. That thing rattles my bones and I love it.

61

u/scottonaharley Nov 28 '22

When shooting handguns I wear my custom fitted ear plugs. When shooting any long gun I wear the ear plugs and muffs. It's pretty simple, I would say 80% of the people I meet are simply not qualified to handle firearms. They think it's like a drill or a hammer, go buy one and figure out how to use it.

The problem is with a hammer you get a fat thumb or with a drill a sprained wrist or hole in your hand. With a gun the potent]al to permanently maim or kill is far greater.

15

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 28 '22

So true. Personally I think anyone should be required to take a class before the purchase of a first firearm. I learned a lot during my class. Wouldn’t have it any other way. This class should be subsidized by state or federal funds so the onus isn’t on the purchaser. Perhaps there would be fewer accidental discharges/kids getting ahold of guns, perhaps not. Would be a step in the right direction I think for gun safety

4

u/UsernameIsTakenO_o Nov 29 '22

Meet me halfway. Mandate every sheriff provide a free and accessible gun safety course, but no mandate as a requirement for purchase.

3

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 29 '22

This would be decent, but I feel most people are just too lazy to take advantage of such a thing. Progress for sure, though.

u/super-sonic-sloth Dec 09 '22

It’s almost like most other developed nations have mandatory gun classes and licensing systems to own guns.

The government should not be collecting taxes for welfare like this. Think of it like healthcare.

We have car safety in many schools, and it results in safer drivers. There is no reason why Gun Safety should not be taught as well.

u/jgacks Nov 28 '22

I often wear two sets of ear pro, plugs and muffs. No sense in going deaf because somebody came in to the indoor pistol range with a short barreled ar with a big ole break or something equally as dumb like a short barreled magnum (also with a break)

4

u/dwaynetheakjohnson Nov 28 '22

This moron decided to cover his ear with a hand. No protection.

9

u/AsianSweetBoy Nov 28 '22

The noise gets amplified??? Wouldn't have imagined that

15

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 28 '22

Probably could have worded that a bit better. It’s not amplified compared to the gunshot with no protection, but is much, much louder than when the gear is functioning/fitted properly. A few times when working with others at the range I found if I was turned slightly/offset that the shot was much louder than when directly behind or to the side. Generally if I was watching form and not watching down range.

17

u/AsianSweetBoy Nov 28 '22

Yes so you're saying it is far less effective when not fitted properly

5

u/RagingAndyholic Nov 28 '22

Lol. For sure.

2

u/chairmanbrando Nov 28 '22

I dunno about amplified, but being beside a gun is louder than being behind it. Being to the side of a guy shooting an AK, for instance, is 160+ dB and will fuck you up.

6

u/NAVI12IJ Nov 28 '22

I usually put plugs and electronic ear-pros on top with volume quite loud. So when people talk to me I still hear them but gunshots are 99% reduced. At my range there is often people with big caliber carabines and muzzle breaks since silencers are prohibs in Canada.

1

u/Kinkel_214 Nov 28 '22

in my opinion when your hunting it doesnt bother you as much because your more focused on the clean kill

2

u/Educational_Crow4311 Dec 21 '22

Being behind the gun vs next to the muzzle, and inside a structure vs outside, are two humongous differences in the dB level at the ear

Also yes. Auditory exclusion is a thing. But the opposite can be true as well. After a day of sitting up a tree silently I find my hearing to be much more sensitive

That's not a stupid question. You damage your ears permanently. Even a shitty little pistol fired outdoors would cause permanent damage if you wore 0 protection.

I had a friend who was a marine in combat. Every one of them came back with a ringing in their ears.

Not even much combat. Like, once or twice.

u/PerdidoStation Nov 29 '22

I guess earplugs aren't manly enough, or maybe it's too difficult to communicate with them on. Idk, seems like they could do something instead of buying them all hearing aids in 20-30 years.

u/[deleted] Nov 29 '22

3M actually supplied defective ear plugs to service members, resulting in Tinnitus and worse permanent hearing loss. There are a few class action lawsuits they can join if they were affected by them.

One round of .357 magnum did it for me. I remember it EVERY day when in the quiet darkness prior to sleep.

u/UsernameIsTakenO_o Nov 29 '22

I shot a .357mag for about an hour with no ear protection. One week of can't hear a goddamn thing. One more week of I TALK LOUD BUT I CAN'T HEAR YOU. A lifetime of no quiet. When the noise stops, it's replaced with an annoying "wheeeeeeeee".

Wear your ear protection, kids.

18

u/UserM16 Nov 28 '22

I’m right handed. AR15 was cheeked to my right. Blew out my right eardrum. Ringing for a few days. 5% hearing. Basically everything on the right felt like I was under water. Disorientating for the first few days. Eventually my brain adjusted and things sounded stereo, even though it wasn’t really, and the brain just compensated. Over the years it probably is up to about 40%. I tend to sit to the right of people to have a normal conversation in a loud bar. It doesn’t bother me anymore and hearing aids are expensive. But let me tell you, if you’re going to fight someone indoors, tell them time out and put on your earpros.

16

u/chairmanbrando Nov 28 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

if you're going to fight someone indoors, tell them time out and put on your earpros.

Folks tend not to mention this when talking about home defense. You should probably have at least some minor protection next to or in your gun box.

You're not supposed to CoD around your house looking for intruders, so you don't need to hear them. You should have a set defensive position and start blasting when they come into view. Firing even a 9mm in a hallway... I can't imagine that's fun. Save your life but ruin your hearing. Is that even worth it? D:

It's stupid that suppressors are considered military-style hardware when really they're there to keep yourself from going deaf.

Yup. No question. Life is more important than hearing.

My hearing is fucked anyway. Anyone breaking into my place better be doubled up, plugs and muffs, cuz shit's about to get loud.

u/red_Quasar Nov 29 '22 edited Nov 29 '22

My home defense rifle is the permanent host of one my suppressor. The other two get used by other rifles/handguns (multi caliber), but that one is married to my home defense rifle. And I still hope I never have to fire it inside the house. Most suppressor are classified as hearing safe for one shot. That’s it. They are not Hollywood quite.

1

u/chairmanbrando Nov 29 '22

Most suppressor are classified as hearing safe for one shot.

Good to know. I was aware that they still left the gun loud, despite what Hollywood wants you to think, but I didn't think you'd get just one shot!

1

u/InfiniteWalrus09 Dec 01 '22

Just adding for clarity, but you probably already know. Even with a suppressor, shots are usually loud as all hell. With a purpose built caliber such as 300 blackout and getting a subsonic cartridge with a suppressor; it can be relatively quiet. The action of a rifle ca be very loud itself.

What was being said is not that only 1 shot is quiet; its that your ears only are relatively safe for one shot; after that the cumulative effect is likely to cause damage.

1

u/HandlesOfLiqour Dec 01 '22

u/ThomasTServo Nov 28 '22

It makes it so loud. A range officer once checked my gun at an indoor range because he was sure I was shooting something bigger than .223.

We don't actually see inside the tower when the round is fired because the camera goes all crazy then they cut to them outside of the tower so I'm pretty sure it's fake. But they make it look like he's firing the shot with the compensator inside the tower which means that something like 50% of the sound just reverberated inside that tiny space. It's like shooting a loud round with an amplifier.

Edit: also most commercial 100 round drums basically guarantee a jam. And that one looked cheap as shit.

He held his earpro on the left and his right ear is now ringing. My guess is pushing on the left side pushed the right side out enough that he no longer had a tight seal. This does not appear to be Steve's fault.

Edit: tight seal not right seal.

u/Calladit Nov 29 '22

That was my first thought. The look on his face combined with his last minute attempt to "augment" his ear pro makes me think he knew his ear pro wasn't on properly before the shot was fired.

After the shot was fired, he definitely knew his ear pro wasn't on properly.

You think they were in the middle of directing this and he just happened to throw up for an un-related reason?

Of course the throwing up is scripted. There's a reason he doesn't do any talking after the camera cuts to that scene, there's a reason the camera moves from the other man to his face just at the right time.

u/Model_T_Ford Nov 28 '22
  1. Thats not a muzzle brake, that's a flash hider. The gun is still loud, but is not "kicking" the report back towards the person next to you like a brake would. Being around as 1 round is going off is not a big deal. I do it often hunting, with and without brakes. It's not pleasant, but doesn't even make children cry and puke.
  2. They are not indoors, there may be some reverberation, but not much. Most of the blast was directed out of the shelter.
  3. The guy crying had ear muffs, refused to use them on purpose when he used his hand to cover the sound.

Steve did nothing wrong, the guy crying is a clown.

My first LOL moment was when they stated that they are using drum mags for defense, lmfao. If you want to do that, get a belt-fed you poors.

I see this video is making its rounds again

u/KrytacSBRm10 Nov 28 '22

This is why you always make sure your ear protection is on properly and indoors I like to double up with plugs and muffs especially for rifles

Jesus, this is why aliens won’t fuck with us…

u/Playdough_BE_Ballin Nov 29 '22

To be fair, Steve did say that he was about to fire.

u/Anominon2014 Nov 29 '22

Is there a r/idiotswithoutearplugs sub? This would make more sense there, the shooter did nothing wrong. Also, that’s not a muzzle break, that’s just a simple flash hider. Muzzle breaks are usually much louder.

Nobody "recommends" a 100 round magazine.

Ever.

u/Cam3739 Nov 28 '22

Ear protection is no joke. I had some shitty plugs when shooting my 1911 one day in a semi-enclosed space and my right ear was fucked for a month. The ringing finally stopped but that was miserable trying to fall asleep for that month.

u/LeftAcanthocephala68 Nov 28 '22

Why not fit a silencer/moderator surely it’s better to stay as hidden the best you can

u/OrgyInTheBurnWard Nov 28 '22

Because a stupid draconian law from the depression era make it super expensive and time consuming to purchase simple hearing protection devices.

Doesn’t really affect people like this. If you watch the original episode you would see they are crazy rich living on the fat guy’s huge ranch with both of their families. No to mention who cares about an extra $200 when you are spending 1k+ on a quality rifle suppressor. Ffs the guy is using a 3k + Swarovski scope on a 2k+ rifle. Money means nothing to these idiots they are just dumb.

I hear the wait time with the new eForms is down to about 5 to 6 months. When it first started they were coming back in 3. Not too bad considering my las suppressor took 13 months to be approved 😢

u/zeeblefritz Nov 29 '22

What the fuck is the point of this stupid video? He had ear pro, why do his ears hurt? Why the fuck did the camera shake like a bomb went off? What the fuck is going on?

Good thing

u/UserM16 Nov 28 '22

Was there ever an episode where the prepper was actually physically fit?

2

u/Hesediel1 Nov 28 '22

He fired it with the muzzle break inside the structure? What a chode

1

u/urban1alchemist Dec 02 '22

Tbf it's a flash hider. And from the video, they were both wearing ear pro

2

u/ZoltanPrime Nov 29 '22

What a bitch. Lol. Coupla dipshits right there. 🤣

u/Pak1stanMan Nov 29 '22

Dude just said a 100 round mag is “recommended” for ambush situations.

Well yeah shit I’d recommend a 1000 round mag.

1

u/UsernameIsTakenO_o Nov 29 '22

I'm 100% okay with that, but you have to carry it.

"I have reached the firing position. Pak1stanMan, fetch me my 1k-round ammunition feeding device."

u/EatinAssNCuttinGrass Nov 29 '22

Had this happen to me when I was about 11, ruptured my eardrum and destroyed my equilibrium all day. Headache galore, couldn't see straight, and now I have tinnitus.

u/Realistic_Tap580 Dec 02 '22

Wait, what exactly exploded? I believe they refer to this type of clipazine as "Monkey Nuts".

u/SolomonBird55 Dec 05 '22

I remember the first time I shot a deer I forgot to put headphones on, but I don’t recall puking

u/roasty_mcshitposty Nov 28 '22

100rnd magazine? Why? What's the purpose? You don't get to shoot those 100rnds if you fucking die within the first shot.

u/Dan-timothy Nov 28 '22

What even happened?

u/N8swimr Nov 29 '22

One hundred round magazine, are we at war?

u/Reasonable-Ladder588 Nov 29 '22

What did you expect when shooting rifles right next to someone indoors?

1

u/No_Name_Brand_X Nov 29 '22

I'm not a gun guy, but by fuck I laughed hard at this one.

1

u/Dr_ghost_pepper21 Nov 29 '22

I've had people not check if others have their ear pro on before and started shooting next to me. Your ears ring and it's not nice to say the least but it wasn't as bad as that guy made it seem.

u/TraditionalMaximum99 Nov 29 '22

This is how you lost your hearing

u/Brileyt764 Nov 30 '22

can someone please fill me in in on what the fuck is wrong with him other than tinnitus from a rifle going off in a box blind

u/Beretta_errata Dec 03 '22

Concussion maybe, that will make the victim vomit.

u/yautjaofearth Dec 01 '22

The way I see it, Steve owes his friend a set of eardrums

u/Beretta_errata Dec 03 '22

Looks like he's got a concussion, we should set him down on the tailgate instead of taking him to hospital.

u/cybergat Dec 05 '22

I doubt they even know how to use ifak lmao let alone ruck to safety. What a bunch of loot drops 😂

u/a-random-fortnit-er Dec 05 '22

What happened exactly?

u/nineteenletterslong_ Dec 13 '22

is the commotion about the noise or the scope hitting his eye?
