    Most shooters develop habits early. Good and bad. Wear good muffs like pro ears or peltors. Double up if inside. The biggest reason I have seen flinch develop with new shooters is not from recoil but from the noise. Loud noises have bad psychological effects when dealing with shooters.

    Hell, sometimes I jump in my own lane at an indoor range when when 3 stalls over some unleashes a 24gr load of 296 in a .44.

    US Navy Policy:

    Indoor range, double hearing protection ie plugs and muffs. gunshots, if you haven't noticed, are a lot louder indoors than out..

    Outdoor range, single hearing protection (plugs or muffs, shooters preference) required, double hearing still recommended. Since hearing loss counts as a disability and they end up paying for that type of thing once a body accumulates enough disability, I figure they probably put in quite a lot of study into it and I'm fine with abiding by their policy.

    Not trying to be a tough guy, but hearing protection is a must. I remember, while in the Marines, there were times when you did not have the time(or did not want to have plugs in for other reasons) to put your "ears" on. You get a few rifles going off around you for a while, including yours, then years later you find out that is not a good thing to have happen. My ears ring most of the time and I know between the sound of gunfire and helicopters(their loud), my hearing took a beating.

    If the range has the hand guns on one side and the rifles on the other side then muffs will work....if mixed then use plugs and muffs

    When I fired my rifles I was around other high powered rifles and I used plugs and muffs....when I went over to the hundgun range I only needed the muffs

    It seems that a .500 S&W is not as bad as a 7.62x54r, 8mm or a 223 going off and just the muffs were needed

    If you plan to become an avid shooter then electronic muffs are the best way to go....training courses you can hear instructions and range commands while still protecting your valuable hearing long term...JJ
