Gun Range Unwanted In Hampton

We used everything we had to buy our dream home in the “Quiet Corner” of Hampton… With service-related PTSD, we need this little piece of heaven to come home to every day.

I was in the military when I met my husband, we had a son and I spent the next 20 (years) following him around until he retired last June after 21 years. My husband said we could retire anywhere I wanted. We used everything we had to buy our dream home in the “Quiet Corner” of Hampton.

With service-related PTSD, we need this little piece of heaven to come home to every day… I have three rescue animals, one of which had been shot. They jump at practically every sound, but here, they’ve blossomed and found peace.

All good reasons I personally don’t want a gun range in my backyard task management system.

How much traffic and noise will this create? I know how gun ranges work because we are former military. We’ve heard enough gunfire for one lifetime… Don’t make my dream home a nightmare. Don’t let them come here.
