My thoughts exactly. I just read your post after a practice session and my ears aren't ringing, but I can tell that they're not happy when I forget to use protection. And I'm not even really a hard hitter, but at 47 years old - I know that things only get worse with time.
PROTECT YOURSELF - everybody!!! even if it's just wads of tissue paper a la Jeff Indyke.
