Private property shooting in Calvert

Hey everyone. I purchased 21 acres in Calvert to build a home and for recreation purposes. Shooting being one of them. I finally have a nice 180yd range set up with a huge hill for a backstop. Feels great owning my own land to shoot on. But now i have a problem arising with one of my neighbors. They are complaining the shooting is unbearable. That they cannot enjoy being on their front porch when I'm enjoying my own land.

The only law on the books I'm aware of is being 150yds away from any dwellings, which i am. I also feel I'm being very reasonable to the length of time i shoot for, and for how long. 20mins to a hour, nothing past 6pm, nothing before 12pm. They are accusing me of breaking the county's noise ordinance. I offered them my phone number to give me a call if I'm bothering them, but they would rather me stop shooting or move father from their house.


No cops involved as of now with this neighbor, but let me know what you think I'm in for. Thanks

Noise laws will be what they will exploit . Short of getting a federal stamp for suppressors I don't have anything else if you have the distance thing taken care of .

Sorry to hear about your situation. You should look into getting a suppressor and agree on "shooting hours" with the neighbor pronto. This could escalate into a county ordinance and ruin things for everyone unfortunately.

why don't you call and ask the LEO. Calvert did just pass their 2A sanctuary for the county I'm thinking they will be on your side.

Spring is here. Isn't it time to dump that trailer load of cow manure on it?
