    I try not make a habit of shooting guns without ear protection, but needless to say, it happens sometimes.

    Surprisingly, the gun that I most remember making my ears ring really bad, was a Colt 1903 Pocket Pistol in .32acp.My ears were ringing like hell, and lasted two days. I was a little freaked out it wouldn't stop.

    Shot alot of other rifles and pistols without hearing protection, but that little Colt stands out as making my ears ring the most.

    it's a tie between every rifle I've shot with a muzzlebrake, they give a whole new meaning to the word loud.

    Bushmaster AR-15 with an AK type brake with no earmuffs.

    Did it by accident (not the shot itself, the fact I didnt have earmuffs on)

    Could not hear at all out of one ear for several hours.

    the rifle sounds so much quieter with its Vortex. actually its a whole different upper (which I am FINALLY getting back this week)

    my Oly ar-15 makes a pretty good racket (no flash hider or brake), my M44 and M91/3- shooting 52grn training ammo are insanely loud and boomy.

    i almost always have my muffs on, so nothing really stands out that much

    My DSA Stg. 58 with the "bone crusher" muzzle brake. Loudest fucking rifle ever. I still need to ditch that brake for a more realistic Stg. brake since the ban ended.
     
  14. Some big-ass powder-loader goose gun my buddy had. I think he packed the thing with three times the powder he was supposed to have. Left a bruise on my shoulder and dang near knocked my on my butt.

    105mm Howitzer from the front end of a Spectre... but that would be kinda unfair for this one-up based thread.

    so i'll just say my 300 Weatherby Mag.

    Single shot 10 gauge shotgun with a 20" barrel. It blew off my broach & earrings everytime I pulled the fucking trigger. :p
    .357 SIG. A guy next to me at the range was shooting one of the small Glocks in this caliber, and something about the loud, snappy fucker made me want to take a sledgehammer to it.
