Good for you !!! Keep shooting.

Maybe a Green lite bulb to start;; and a Red to stop;; Might need a couple of the red ones since you are moving all around !.

I haven't known any "Deaf" shooters, but certainly quite few hard of hearing shooters. If you are talking about bullseye shooting such as NRA HighPower matches, accommodations can be made. Typically, the score keep will relay the ranges commands by shouting them to the hard of hearing shooter. Given that you are deaf, something like tapping your shoulder when the "fire" or "cease fire" commands are given might be a viable work around. Almost every highpower shooter I know wouldn't bat an eye at helping someone like yourself participate in our sport. Hell, you could probably show up with nothing but a rifle and good attitude and you'd probably be showered with shooting mats, spotting scopes all in an effort to be helpful to new shooters.

If you are serious about getting into the game, I recommend that you first decide what type of competitions you'd like to participate in, then get in contact with the match director to see if accommodations can be made...which I can almost guarantee they will be. At the very least, let us know where you are and the type of competition (High power, 3 gun, etc) and I bet someone who lives around there will chime in on how to get into some sort of match.

Thanks from 6point5X68

I saw some Venusians last night. I got to know them.

Not in the biblical sense.

A problem with green and red lights is that some people are color blind.

Not sure your point. It was a deaf joke from a deaf fellow, me. Not totally but since early childhood I have been 90 percent deaf in one ear and since 1969 have had bad tinnitus in the "good" ear which is about 80 percent.

So yeah, I can make a deaf joke with no guilt.

Well, I didn't know...and I suspect the OP didn't either. Then again, that is another assumption on my part. Disregard my smart-aleck posting.
