Residents of a newly-built neighborhood in Zhengzhou, capital of Henan province, have been angered by the falling remains of clay targets and lead shot from a neighboring shooting range.

They are irritated by the noise of gun fire all day, together with the lead shot from sports guns and slippery floors in their compound caused by debris from the shooting range, according to Henan Business News.

The range, merely 40 meters from their compound, has been run by the Shooting Sports Administration Center since 1958 and is home to two world champion shooters as well as other prize-winning marksmen.

A protective net failed to catch all the small size remains of targets and shot. A high wall was also planned but proved impractical because the targets and shot in Skeet Pairs or trap shooting go high in the sky.
