Residents fire away at gun ranges, Mushquash

Dana Coons said he belongs to a different gun club, where police are allowed to practice at their range. Coons described it as “a big problem” and fully supports the Londonderry Police Department firing range.

Kimball also suggested an indoor range be built, or additions be made to the mounds in the firing ranges to help block out the sound.

But an indoor range would be costly not only to build, but also to maintain.

Police have limited the usage of their range and shooting times, Londonderry police Chief William Hart said.

“We want to be good neighbors,” he said.

Although no vote was taken, councilors will look into posting signs within the Musquash about limiting target shooting, Town Council Chairman John Farrell said.

In addition, the police department will look into ways to limit sound coming from its range, Hart said.
