I have a theoretical question. I understand that in practical combat situations, theory may not hold, but never having been in a gunfight myself (hopefully I never will), I bring this question here.
My plan for if my house is broken into at night is to grab my AR and go hunting, because I have family members in the other end of the house who are counting on me. I have a pair of electronic hearing protection in my room.
If my house is broken into, is it worth taking the time to put those on and turn them on? Are they a tactical advantage or disadvantage?
