    I took my S&W .460 Mag to an indoor range once. When I fired it everyone in the range looked over to see "What the Hell was that?". I decided then that it was an outdoor gun.

    I have an AR with a muzzle brake. I do not shoot it at a range if some one is next to me because it will slap them when fired. I consider it an outdoor gun also.

    Was shooting at Range USA last weekend and shotguns and rifles and noise was very very loud. Is there any indoor or outdoor ranges in Baton Rouge area that segregates pistols and long guns. Thanks
    It's rather far from BR, but LA Range Gun Club in Maurice has a full cinder-block wall separating the pistol and rifle ranges. Firing on the rifle range is hardly noticeable from the pistol range.

    I have always worn double hearing protection while shooting at indoor ranges. I use silicone ear plugs then ear muffs. I was shooting my AR-10 at the Precision Firearms range and that sucker was sure loud, even with double hearing protection.

    its a smidge out of the way, but iberville parish gun range is an excellent outdoor facility that has long guns on one range and pistols on another. friendly staff and well maintained.
    Ditto. Very Well managed range. And the outdoor venue reduced noise make shooting much more pleasurable.

    And Vets shoot free!!

    I've found white noise apps to be helpful in drowning out the constant ringing, at least at night while you're trying to sleep. Check out Relax Melodies app. My only option during the day was hearing aids that neutralize the ringing, but I declined those until I really need them.

    I have a sound machine the VA gave me to use at night to sleep. I've used a window AC or noise machine since 1973. I have Tinnitus and Bilateral Hearing Loss. I have VA hearing aids too.
