As the title of this thread states, my neighbor is trying to have my personal range shut down. In the area I live it is legal to shoot most anything by township law as long as its not close to the road houses etc. the common sense stuff. I GPSed all homes in the area and used a natural 150 ft. high berm that has no home within 600yards. I then set up A-500 steel back stops and covered the front of the stops with wooden ammo boxes full of oak pallet planks and set up the range for 80yrds in a field surrounded by woods so it cant be seen and the trees muffle the sound. I even went so far as to never shoot before noon and never shoot past 7:00 p.m. per my neighbors wishes. I only have 2 "big" shoots per year, Memorial Day and 1 month before deer hunting to sight in and I never have more that 5 people shooting more than 20 rds each in a 1 hour sitting forsighting in. The only persons other than myself and my family that shoot are active service (military) members and a few close friends but they shoot mostly .22's for practice and all neighbors are invited. My last session was 20 rds. over a 4 hour period and thats the way I always shoot. My range see's maybe 1000 to 1500 rounds per year, 70% .22 cal, 25% pistol cal, 5% rifle cal (mostly .308 & some 30-06). Now my neighbor has gone to the township commitee and claimed my range to be unnessisary, obnoxious, dangerous, rude, and a bain to the community(farms 10 acres or more his is the smallest at 4.8 acres). Mind you, I make no money for fees, no one helps with upkeep, it is open to the neighbors and all on my private property. Any one have thoughts on how to handle this at the next commitee meeting in 2 days? I only have till 5:30pm thursday to find solutions. P.S. My neighbor is the perfect liberal, teacher, democrat, conservationist that cut down Wisconsins largest/oldest white oak tree to build his garage, gun owner that believes guns should only be fired at a gun club, but fires his into the woods from his garage less than 100 yards from my house, and still believes I should trade him my 2 acres of woods behind his house for his 1/2 acre of lawn containing an old leech bed thats in front of my property.
