Taken from a past CSC news letter. "RANGES" DUE TO MALICSIOS DAMAGE TO THE INSIDE PISTOL RANGE;(i.e. FAN BEING SHOT, LIGHTS BEING SHOT OUT, AND BOTTLES BEING SHOT, ECT...), IF THIS PERSISTS WE WILL GO TO ANOTHER KEY SYSTEM IF NEEDED.

That has nothing to do with 'PUBLIC SAFETY". All shots are fired within the confines of the building, Members only. If I remember correctly that is a cement block building. I do not agree with shooting bottles or cans anywhere, Litter for one or if done in area where people hunt then the injury to the paws of the bird dogs.

So, they move in last year, in the neighborhood of a GUN CLUB that's been in business since 1951...

Then complain they can hear gunshots??

Only person they have a beef with is their realtor!

Indoor shooting heard outside the club.....puh-leez

From what I have read,the neighbors don't want to shut down the club at all. They have no problem with having a club there. They only want to stop the shouting in the wee hours of the night and put a limit on all the drinking. Many gun clubs are dry. Makes sense.

No they are not "dry".
They are private property. Most clubs that where smart enough not to have a bar(you have to let the state in your home whenever they want) have a byob policy for its funtcions or they apply for a one day permit to sell beer.

1. Club was there before you!
2. Any shooting after dark, except on a lighted Trap Range would be inside the building.
3. Massachusetts has a state wide range protection law that negates the noise complaint.
4. SO SUCK IT UP YOU YUPPIE SCUMBAGS!!! THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT!!!
5. So now you believe what a Dracut Police Officer has to say? Pick and choose when you decide what they have to say works for you, How Timely!!
