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 
for you.

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.
