Why wear headphones when shooting

Don't Let Gun Sports Backfire on You: Use Ear Protection and Hang Onto Your Hearing
Shawn Dulohery, a national- and world-champion skeet shooter and 2004 Olympic team member in the skeet event, would never fire a gun without them. Likewise, Dave Henderson, a nationally recognized outdoor sports writer and hunting expert, wouldn't dream of venturing into the woods without his. These two highly skilled shooters ardently support the wearing of ear protection such as earplugs or earmuffs when firing a rifle, shotgun, or other firearm used in hunting and sport shooting.
"Wearing ear protection is extremely important, not only for people who shoot, but for bystanders as well," says Dulohery. For this reason, the top-tier marksman—a silver medalist in the 2005 national shotgun shooting championships in Colorado Springs, CO—always carries two types of ear protection to the firing range: one type for when he is shooting and another type for when he is watching other people shoot.
Dulohery knows from experience. The 40-year-old Sergeant First Class in the U.S. Army's Marksmanship Unit, Fort Benning, GA, has been target shooting since the age of 12. He has already lost some of his hearing, and he is determined to protect the hearing he still has.
