Sup everybody, FoulGuts here. Well, lets start off by saying I'm 18 years old going on 19 soon. I exercise daily, mostly heavy lifting, no Cardio whatsoever. It was my friends birthday about 4 days ago, hes shipping off to boot camp soon so we decided to go out shooting one night. We went to his house, picked up a Sig Sauer .45 ACP and left to go shoot out in the country. 9 round magazine, 3 of us and we each shot 3 rounds. It was my first time shooting, and both my friends have been shooting for quite some time now without ear protection. This is when my stupidity clicked and went off to shoot without ear protection cause I was just so excited to shoot for the first time. After my 3 rounds, i noticed ringing in my ears and i knew it was temporary ringing. The first night, it drove me nuts, i couldn't sleep, but ended up falling asleep. Woke up the next morning and the ringing had died down a bit. Now, it's really not that bad. I can handle it. I can sit or lay down in my room silently for hours without it bothering me. I'll be able to hear it, but sometimes I don't know if it goes away or my brain just ignores it. I have seen many forums and answers of some of it going away within months maybe sometimes even years. Read that some guy that was serving in the military had it for 2 months and and had gone away. The ringing itself doesn't bother me, but maybe the fact that I will never know what complete silence is anymore. SO, the big question here is, will it go away?
