In USMC boot camp training how do recruits get over all the noise at the firing range?

I know this might sound like a funny question, but when every gunshot sounds like you eardrums just blew out, how do recruits get over this? Do they wear ear protection?

depends on the situation as to what type of hearing protection you use. But in a training situation, all participants wear hearing protection, or are required to.

at ranges where the students are enclosed or closer together, the required hearing protection was called "circum aural protectors" or ear muff type protection.

at out door ranges, the required wear was insert-able hearing protection. could be silicon, foam, or at one time wax covered cotton (looked and even smelled like a piece of double bubble chewing gum) but the main job was to seal the aural canal.

hearing protection in an actual combat situation? not real likely. in the type uniform of the future (that helmet that looks like a motorcycle helmet) you do get sound attenuation.

the sad thing is, you never harden your hearing to the noise. each explosive sound causes some damage. what happens is that you gradually lose the ability to perceive noise. ever wonder why your Sgt talks so loud? he might really be talking to really hear his voice (I couldn't resist that).
