Great period pictures. Did target shooters use any ear protection in 1939? None is visible, even in the photos that seem to show active shooting. Some people are shooting 22 calibre rifles on an outdoor range, so the ear protect could be omitted. The big bore hand guns however would leave a definite impression on your ears and hearing.

The Australian coastal artillery fired 6inch guns without any ear protection.I remember when i was in the school cadets in the 1960s ,we fired 303s without any hearing protection.On an open range ,the noise isnt that bad,my first introduction to hearing damage was the first time i tried benchrest as a teen,the tin roof over the benches seemed to double the noise,and i couldnt hear at school for weeks.......The only ear protection Ive heard of in WW2 was the issue of earplugs to aircraft mechanics test running big radials after rebuilds.
