Get fitted for hearing protection. This does not mean going to K-Mart and
buying the foam throw-away plugs. Find someone who can sustom mold plugs
FWIW, I spent almost 10 years as an Artillery Officer in the US Army, and
for a not-small amount of that time, I was a competition pistol shooter. I
have molded plugs (made at my own expense), and when inserted, I can hear
NOTHING. I can still FEEL some noise though.... 8-)

Take care of your hearing. Once lost, it cannot normally be restored. I
live with tinitius (minor). I do NOT want any more, so I am careful.
