How come I can hear the voices in my head just fine without a hearing aid? ;D

Works the same as the "floaters" in my eyes: I see them much better when I'm wearing glasses.

I mean, it's obvious. Right?

Good advice . . . . . and excellent practice to follow.
Although I do my cleaning procedure in the evening before going to bed.
Adjust to what works best for you.

Right now, the inside of my ear canal is itching at times. How do you cope with that? Is that something one gets accostomed too after porlonged use?...

I clean my ears, all around the inside, with a Q-Tip every morning, before putting my aids in.
Just don't go in too deeply. Stay away from your eardrums.

The problem seems to arise from ear-wax build-up and moisture.
The Q-Tip seems to take care of that.

When I put them on, in the morning, they are too loud and I need to back them down a couple clickn on the remote. The DR told me they reset to a middle position when placed  back on the stand to recharge.  By the way I am wearing them all day, every day. When I take them off at night it is amazing how much my hearing had deteriorated.

My plan is to totally utilize the aids.

Well, I kinda understand the Glock C-PDW. It just looks much more awkward than it needs to be.
The result, I guess, is a very light-weight pistol with 100-yard capabilities. That beats the M1 Carbine at its own game.

On the other hand, I do not understand the mini-pistol with the red-dot sight. At the short range at which a mini-pistol is best used, the red-dot sight seems superfluous.
And what's that thing that's stuck onto its muzzle? Is it a muzzle-brake? If it is, it's a really good idea.

They are indeed compensators, Steve. I haven't worked much with them yet--just got the recoil springs and a trigger problem fixed and tested out--but what I understand is that comps don't offer much help with standard-pressure but do help with +P and higher rounds. And the red-dot is superfluous at, I dunno, call it up to five maybe seven yards unless you want a precision shot. The add capability beyond that over iron sights, though. And though I haven't tried it at that range, I'm confident that the '26 becomes a 100-yard gun with the dot on it. I have run a non-comped '19 at 100 yards and over a couple of times and it works well with the dot-sight.

The Glock with the Endo is a bedside and bag gun to be sure. The folding mechanism lets me put it into a smaller bag than most C-PDWs will work with and I can fire it right-handed without unfolding the brace out. (Heavy, though.) The three or four points of contact it offers makes a big difference shooting to be sure. The SB Tactical brace is bulkier than the KAK Shockwave that was on it but I think is better for shooting. If I can sand the Endo a bit I can put a Kriss 25-rd mag into it, which would be really good for overall capability. If I ever get a red-dot for it, it will be a very good system for its niche. It works well now for home defense as-is. But it'll be loud if I ever have to shoot indoors, though.

I have a 4th Gen G35 that I'm working on with the same setup and some other experimental doo-dads, but the Endo is not built for Gen 4 and I'm having to sand and fill it. When I get it properly worked up I'll put a picture up.

That is just about as bad as having to go into the Post Office.
