Hearing Damaged Caused By Shooting 

Too often do we forget that our hearing is precious and that is does not improve over time. And we do so many things that damages our hearing, and often without us even knowing. This includes listening to music through earbuds, listening to music and TV at really high volumes, being around loud machines and engines often and for prolonged periods of time, or even going out to a loud bar or club with blaring music, as well as concerts. We might think that these things are not as bad for our hearing as they actually are.
