You beat me to it. I was going to post the same question. I had tinnitus for 25 years now. I had to give up cowboy shooting for a few years because of it. I'm retired now and got back into cowboy shooting. I just live my life now and try not to worry about it. Worrying about it only makes it worse. I use double ear protection when I shoot wild bunch. I don't do that when I shoot cowboy. I do wear hearing aids and that calms it down a little.
