      Ok, today there was a demonstration of dog training where a live, and a stupid guy shot with an "ammoless" gun five meters from me.

      No T increase, nothing, but should i worry for my hearing?
      Usually i'm not paranoid but now...

      You were 15' from the discharge of a low-powder bullet without a projectile. That sounds like it was probably a glorified cap gun?

      If there was no immediate pain / spike, then I wouldn't be worried about it. Loudness of a firearm is in direct proportion to the explosive force of the load. I would be surprised if the cartridge used for something like this had much more than the primer load in it.

      You were outdoors, right?

      in fact i don't know, i just know that it was some sort of gun wich made a big sound when fired, i say ammoless because it was during a presentation of dog training when some trainers , when attacked by the dog ( wearing the big suit of protection) use this to show that the dog id not stopping by the noise.. Do i assume it wasjust a gun to maje a sound. I don't know if you understand...
