Did anyone else hear gun shots fired around 7 AM this morning? I am trying to find any reasonable explanation for it but anything I come up is bizarre.

I thought it might be firecrackers but who plays with that at 7 AM?

Shooting practice? Again, 7AM?

Hunting... in Folsom?

I would hate to live close to that guy and have to wake up to this. I even thought it might be drunks shooting but that early?

This went on for at least 10 minutes.. single shots with some rapid fire 2-3 shots.

Thanks,
P

I don't know where you live, but we hear shooting practice at the prison all the time, even at 7:00 a.m., which really isn't all that early. The noise ordinance for construction and other activities is at 7:00 a.m.

Otherwise, it's not legal to fire within city limits as far as I know - applies to drunk, sober. I don't believe hunting is allowed in city limits either.

its the prison. the guards practice shooting in the morning. wind direction can carry sound a long way, especially since the prison is down in a canyon.

We often hear the prison firing range shots all the way over in Natomas Station.

I live next to Lembi Park. Never thought of prison being the source. It makes sense. Moved to Folsom in February and never noticed it until now. Thanks for educating me!

I didn't hear any gunshots but last night I did see several huge, professional type fireworks go off around 9:30pm.

Who launches illegal fireworks almost a month after the 4th of July?

the folks they want for sure to hear the gunfire from the practicing guards are the inmates. it kinda reminds them who is in charge
