I wasn't being serious before anyone's feathers get ruffled.

Just make sure there are no kids nap times involved. That really ticks moms off.

Well, he could add some of that sound-absorbing foam to the walls of the garage (might keep it warmer too). He could also consider making one of those shooting tubes that looks like a big plastic culvert lined with similar sound deadening material.

Yep, that looks like a nice weekend project. Ah,where does Mom keep her car? Better check with her first. Wives can be more dangerous than neighbors. Remember John Wayne Bobbit?

Had i the name "bobbit" i think i would be more careful how far out on the "crazy, wild" meter i dated. At least his name wasn't "fillet".

Shotguns are noisy but you aren't gonna shoot them much. Keep the garage doors closed to the extent you can. Shooting from inside it baffles and redirects the noise. Even hanging a few plastic Dollar Store shower curtains around the inside of the garage would probably dampen the noise. Don't shoot before 9AM or after 5PM, and tell the neighbors you've done what you can.

Better yet, invite 'em over to shoot once you're done, show them, tell 'em your plans...
