    If you had neighbor with a "Vote for Hillary" sign in the yard in 2016, look no further ...

    Funny. There's a private range about 2 miles from town and my town isn't but a mile wide anyway. I frequently hear gunfire and it does stress me out. Why can't I be at the range instead of doing something else!!!

    Kind of reminds me of SeaTac airport between Seattle and Tacoma, Wa. The airport was built out in the middle of nowhere, and now there are homes and apartments all around it. I used to often see petitions online complaining about the noise from the airport trying to put a time on when airplanes should land and take off. I used to just laugh, they didn't see that giant airport when they were looking for a place to live?

    If you can't stand the heat, get out of the fire.

    Similar situation around Austin Rifle Club (ARC) as well.

    I've been wondering when y'all are going to have to look into baffling some ranges.

    Our range roofs have deep "eye brows" on them. I think they are dual purpose: 1, to keep people shooting level and not going over the burm, and 2, to baffle the noise. It sure is a lot louder shooting on the line now because some of that noise is directed back at ya.

    You can see them on this page on one of the revolving photos:

    Houston added their first east/west runway a few years back. They run 24/7 and could care less about the people who bought land that was not along a runway.

    Remember that I mean no offense. I love y'alls club. I've been treated marvelously every time I've been there.

    But I have to point out that those eyebrows are a totally ghetto substitute for real baffling. They make the line louder and set both upper and lower limits for the height above ground from which a shot may be fired. But it's relatively cheap. The cost of fully baffling a 200 meter rifle range would bankrupt most clubs who would be forced to relocate rather than remodel. Thus, I can understand why the eyebrows are used; I just don't like 'em.

    I've got neighbors that shoot in the area. Sometimes all day long.

    Usually makes me think I should get off my butt and go shooting.

    Had one guy say we were scaring the deer away from his feeder. He watched them but didn't hunt. He made that claim when deer were coming to get water from the tank on our property. My berm is built in to the side of said tank.

    The best way to avoid being ducked with by the neighbors is to not dick with them. I continued to shoot as usual and the guy got over it. Had he tried to push the issue he would have gotten no where and I would probably have done some extra shooting, and maybe even played with some tannerite.

    If you are someone who wants to tell your neighbors what they can do, move to an HOA so everyone can be miserable together.
