Over the last few weeks noise from the Anzac rifle range has been getting excessive. It’s sounded like a WWII front-line for three or four days this week, and the entire weekend has been non-stop. I’m not sure what’s going on down there but a bit of googling today was the first time I discovered the govt is looking to close the rifle range down. I could not possibly support this more.
The NSW Rifle Association is expectedly miffed as is the Shooter’s Party (we have such a thing? Really?) – but this is not in their back yard.

If you think the Anzac Rifle range is in the wrong place you should tell her. From what I can tell it look alike the closure of the range is still going to happen in Feb.
As the crow flies, it looks like about a 1.5 km from my house to the Anzac Rifle Range – with a lot of houses between me and them. Yet this is the noise in my back garden today:
