The town officials might consider making silencers easily available............

The town officials COULD ALSO create a noise ordinance which sets a noise level they shooters cannot exceed. they could also create a “nusiance ordinance” which can be difficult to beat. The shooters need to meet with the town to set some reasonable standards unless they want to relocate. Not fair to make them move or cease operations but that seems to be the way things are done these days.

If the club was there before the homes, wouldn’t it be “grandfathered-in” and immune to new regs? Or isn’t that even a factor anymore? Just wondering...

NH provides a number of protections for gun ranges, which hopefully the club has availed themselves of. A noise control ordinance has to apply to everyone, and has to pass a vote at town meeting. Peterborough is more liberal than many NH towns, but also has its share of libertarians. In general noise ordinances don't really end up causing much of a problem in NH since the actual sound level that "annoys" the anti-gun neighbors isn't that loud. Usually their lawn mower or a chainsaw is louder, and nobody in town is going to vote for an ordinance which prevents them from mowing their lawn.
