Is it just me or do they seem louder this year? Ive just had a torrid time with our 2 dogs and pup we even had to call the father in law to help us. The worst of it is 2 of the dogs dont bother about gun shots, and last year they were OK. Even my ears are ringing. I have honestly never heard nothing like that in my 43 years........... Ive always been against a ban on selling them but after tonight Im ready to support a ban if anything was ever to be proposed. It was totally awefull.
