u/shuzkaakra Sep 23 '22

I'm no gun expert, but I don't think holstering a gun in your shirt is particularly safe. Am I wrong?

It just seems like an accidental misfire and you can blow your head off, or a boob off or any other body part.

u/SnooBunnies8468 Sep 23 '22

For two shots..? Not a big deal, now if she was going to shoot more then yes I'd wear protection. Hunters usually never wear any either

1

u/verybadassery Sep 23 '22

Too cool for that business. My dad shot guns all his life with no ear protection. At 76 he can’t hear a damn thing. Ridiculous that we know these things and people still don’t take precautions.

First time I went to a firing range, I made the mistake of sliding my ear protection back to hear my brother explain something to me, as a guy 3 stalls away fired.

Never doing that again lmao

I have beige colored foamies, they are pretty invisible cause I wear them pretty deep. She could be wearing those.

Earplugs. Military use them all the time. Good ones not the recent allow hearing easily until loud noise is present.

u/Barbados_slim12 Sep 23 '22

She pointed a loaded gun at her chin. I don't think her judgment is all there. That being said it's a pretty small gun and she's outside. I'm guessing it shoots .22 based on the size(maybe 38 acp?) which is a relatively quiet round. Maybe her hearing is so fucked from regularly doing this she only hears bubble wrap when shooting

Unless your shooting a large gun or in large quantities you don’t really need ear protection.

u/CyberneticPanda Sep 23 '22

I wondered that too, but I guess it's less necessary (but not unnecessary) at an outdoor range.

I shot a .44 magnum without ear protection. Outside. I thought someone hit me in the head with a bat.

2

u/GeneralDisorder Sep 23 '22

I fired a few dozen rounds out of my .44 without ear-pro a couple times. Dumb! Would not recommend. In fact I'd recommend against it.

I also went to the range one day and when I got there I opened up my ammo can and realized "shit! No muffs. What about my backup plugs? Fuck! No plugs either! Fuck it. I'm gonna shoot something". Fired 30 rounds out of my SKS. By the time the magazine was empty I didn't want to shoot anymore.

1

u/ipodplayer777 Sep 23 '22

I’ve shot .357 mag without ear pro. Indoor range only had foamies and they weren’t fitting right so I didn’t bother pushing them into my ear. I now own my own ear pro. Shit hurt

1

u/Prankishmanx21 Sep 23 '22

The worst one for me was when I was about 15. I spent the better part of the day shooting my .22. My ears were ringing for the next 2 or 3 days. A .22 isn't loud but it adds up and that crack it makes is piercing.

5

u/Lord_Abort Sep 23 '22

I knew of a guy who had his GF's ex break into his place with a tire iron. His nightstand gun was a .357 mag revolver with some kinda pissing hot defensive loads. Long story short, he shot the guy in the shoulder and basically separated his arm from his body before he died from the blood loss, but now he's almost completely deaf in one ear and just mostly deaf in the other.

2

u/LurkersGoneLurk Sep 25 '22

That’s shitty, all around.

3

u/-240p Sep 23 '22

The first time I shot a .357 was outside with no ear protection. I had experience with guns, so I expected it to be very loud. I didnt expect it to be the loudest shit in the whole universe, but it totally was.

u/FordBeeblebrox Sep 23 '22

I had a .22 for plinking prairie dogs and grandpa would let me use his six-shooter sometimes. Shot it from inside the cab of the truck a couple times…do not recommend. Movies get that all the way wrong

1

u/AccountThatNeverLies Sep 23 '22

9mil is not that bad. It's like a scratch inside the ears.

Never heard more than one round without earpro though, I heard after a few controlled pairs you just can't hear anymore for a while.

111

u/Corsavis Sep 23 '22

Always makes me laugh in movies when someone pulls out a .44 or .357 or something, indoors, blams a couple dudes in the elevator, and walks out without blood pouring from their ears

"We've gotta run!"

WAT?

Nah, the best is this clip from that Doomsday Prepper show which was full of nothing but lunatics. These guys fire high powered rifles in a confined space and hilarity ensues:

https://youtu.be/wHOog45llUU?t=60

Best part of this show is how many of these preppers believed in crazy end of world scenarios but only like one or two of them were focused on an actual pandemic.

/u/ChaseShep77, I've got a TV proposal for you...

20

u/TOYPAJ_Yellow_15 Sep 23 '22

Actual smart preppers would never go on a show like that anyway though, is kind of the issue.

Like, preppers typically don't advertise or ever show off that they ARE preppers. Most of their friends and family don't even know. These guys are idiots AND vain, like congrats if SHTF everyone who watches the show knows where you are.

I'm not a prepper per-se, I'm prepared but not OCD levels. I've got a box of candles, some ceramic armor and soft armor, and a reserve 48pk of toilet paper and two 32pks of water. I keep two bags of dog food ready for my pups and that's it. I'm willing to bet most people would be fine for a week.

Plus, for these guys, if you're going to LARP as a fucking survivalist you'd think the gym would be a part of that too. These guys are just side-mission loot drops if things actually capped off lmao

18

u/MatureUsername69 Sep 23 '22

I'm dying at your prep stash being candles, armor, toilet paper, and dog food. "What about the stuff you need to live?" "That's what the armor is for"

2

u/TOYPAJ_Yellow_15 Sep 25 '22

I'm 6'5", all body armor is doing for me in a scenario like this is ensuring a bleed out slower, tbh.

But yeah I have more stuff obviously, I always have enough food to last about two weeks but it's not prepper adjacent it's just I don't let my food get too low, so it didn't seem relevant lol.

3

u/-FeistyRabbitSauce- Sep 23 '22

The armor just seems so extreme next to the candles and the tp lol

1

u/TOYPAJ_Yellow_15 Sep 25 '22

The body armor is because I go to a lot of protests, it's not specifically for not dying in an emergency just me and my fiance are pretty political lmao

And as far as food, I've always got a fuck ton of beans and corn and rice for some reason. Like, we always end up with food we have NEVER eaten in our house somehow and I don't understand it, but I've also been an IF nerd and have done extended fasts. I've gone two weeks on snake oil and have the stuff to make it, my fiance is the only one who I worry about. If we don't have help within like a week shit is fucked beyond the amount I care to live through anyway, given it's not a natural disaster. But a natural disaster bad enough to do that is 99/100 forewarned and we would leave, so this is for the hypothetical somebody did some fuckery/boogaloo boys are trying to take out the ABC 3 and we're eating more of a shit sandwich than I want to endure.

Also, I have a ratty ass M&P Shield that my dumbass picked up in .40 so economically it's probably more cost effective to just throw the gun at somebody than actually shoot them.

And if SHTF bad enough, I have a giant red crowbar and I'm prone to long bouts of silence IRL.

u/LurkersGoneLurk Sep 23 '22

We were at a buddy’s farm when I gang banged my head with that .44.

Got to shoot a suppressed .22. That’s more my style.

And I think I was 0-12 on clays.

Whoever let you shoot that 44 without ear pro was kind of a knob, haha.

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 23 '22 edited Sep 23 '22

That’s a pretty small derringer, maybe .22 or .38 Definitely should still wear some but it shouldn’t cause permanent injuries unless it was a constant sound.

Edit: I think I can see ear plugs in and they look a bit purple so I think she is wearing some, like 80% positive but probably wrong haha

3

u/Southern_Dentist7225 Sep 23 '22

I’ve had this really stupid question ever since I was a child (don’t worry, no one has ever let me hold a gun): if you shoot a gun into the air, can it still kill someone on its way back down?

1

u/Myattemptatlogic Oct 14 '22

Technically, with some insane variables together, it might be possible?

But if you fire it straight up, assuming no wind/outside variables, it's not going to fall back on you any faster than terminal velocity, so it would hurt but definitely should not kill you lol.

2

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 26 '22

It depends on a variety of factors, simple answer yes it can potentially kill. But it depends on weight, wind, velocity, the shooting arc and a whole lot of other factors, but yes a large enough caliber projectile can kill on its way down.

You’re better off not finding out hahahaha

3

u/WTFNameIsntTaken Sep 23 '22

It's a bond arms. Have one, and extra barrels, even a 22 version. It's loud AF with any caliber, tiny sights, and can shoot 410 on down. It's a riot, but assuming it's small caliber would be wrong, it's just a tiny gun that can shoot multiple. Usually have mine in 410 mode for its intended use on the ranch, a pocket snake gun.

1

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 23 '22

Wow that sounds nice, I’m an Australian so I can’t have pistols especially anything this concealable without running the seven circles of hell gauntlet of paperwork for the licenses

2

u/Flynn_Kevin Sep 23 '22

Way more recoil than .22. Probably .38 or 9mm.

1

u/smootex Sep 23 '22

No shot that's a .38 or 9mm. Look at the size of the barrel.

1

u/Astonedwalrus13 Sep 23 '22

Hmmmmmmm, I think 9mm would be a bit big maybe. I was thinking 38 auto so a little shorter than the 9 but fairly similar size projectile

1

u/Lord_Abort Sep 23 '22

Bond Arms makes em in 357 and 45 Long Colt

8

u/Potato-Demon Sep 23 '22

Recoil didn’t look too bad despite her horrible form, you’re right

3

u/phathomthis Sep 23 '22

Definitely a small caliber. from the barrel size I'd say likely a .22 or .25. I shoot those without earpro as they're not very loud.

2

u/Myattemptatlogic Oct 14 '22

It's a Bond Arms, shoots both .45 and 410 shells. It's loud as fuck lol.

u/picode-gallo Sep 23 '22

I mean I have one with the same barrel length that shoots .357 magnum.

u/starpocalypse Sep 23 '22

they’re outside, and it looks like a reasonably empty range. do you expect her to have ear protection when she conceal carries, too?

5

u/Potato-Demon Sep 23 '22

Gunshots are still loud. Doesn’t matter if it’s a .22 or 12 gauge. I always use ear pro. In a self defence situation, there’s no choice but not to, this is a controlled environment.

1

u/starpocalypse Sep 23 '22

yes you’re right, that’s totally fair. I see now in hindsight it would better to avoid hurting ourselves if we can manage it

3

u/ConMastaLee Sep 23 '22

My buddy has a gun like that and it barely goes pop when fired. Still a good idea to have ear protection though.

u/RogueVogueDino Sep 23 '22

Or like that time you're issued what look like cool ear plugs, but they didn't actually work.

Doing construction work and shooting big guns are a bad combination as well. Ever stand next to someone shooting an AT-4, at what you think is a good distance without wearing your ear pro? You're never far enough I learned.

17

u/DefNotMyNSFWLogin Sep 23 '22 edited Sep 23 '22

Yeah, I'll admit when I was going through combat school at 19, I wasn't that worried about all that non-sense.

I would use my vest to prop up nicely in the bleachers in-between shooting, and be able to sleep through 40 m4's shooting at once with no protection. Gotta be able to be hear when it's your turn to shoot again haha.

Luckily my tinnitus is pretty moderate.

3

u/kookyabird Sep 23 '22

For now... I had mild tinnitus from god knows what. Did a trial run of an SSRI and it made it worse. It has not gone back to previous levels. There's a whole world of soft sounds that are now hidden to me.

I've always worn ear pro when at the range. Doubling up for the big guns or indoor ranges. Worn it while working with loud power tools. Not gone to crazy loud concerts. Fucking sucks.

2

u/DefNotMyNSFWLogin Sep 24 '22

Yeah, I usually always wore protection as well. I was also a Seabee, so I also worked with a lot of power tools and heavy equipment, on top of the guns.

Not sure exactly when it started, it just kinda snuck up on me. It was before I got out though. Got the service connected disability for it, among other things.

2

u/Slider_0f_Elay Sep 23 '22

Sounds like you know a bunch of very old school or very dim people. I remember people bitching about being forced to wear ear protection back in the 90s but mostly because the ear protection then sucked and they still knew it was a good idea in general.

u/Lookkidsbigben_ Sep 23 '22

Yeah sadly it’s a combo of both

u/12altoids34 Sep 23 '22

I've never been to a range that doesn't require you to wear them. There's an outdoor range near me but I've never been to that one. I've been yelled at a few times. I'm hard of hearing as it is so I took off my ear protection to try and hear what my friend was saying and immediately got yelled at.
