My bedside SP-100 357 used to be loaded with 38+P (with ears quickly accessible). Now a G-19 seems good enough and I am more likely not to flinch in a clutch situation.
Actually. Shooting Outside or inside for that matter. You will barely hear the gun go off and not have a clue how many rounds you fired. Most of the time you will have shot more than what you thought you heard. Pretty much a non issue. I would not worry about that.
