Anyone else hearing it? Pow! Shotgun type and then in a distance going north. I'm walking my dog so they'd better finish.

I was just in Ajijic dropping some friends off for a bus tour and didn't see or hear anything out of the ordinary. There is however a rather large fire up the side of the mountain in Central/West Ajijic. Looks like a controlled burn of some sort.

Perhaps cohotes or a tire blow out on the highway above?

hubby heard it too. It's in a distance up north & doesn't appear to be on the main highway. First shot was very close, then a second, then muffles of shots in a distance. I went outside w/my coffee & heard some more muffled up in the hills....The hills are alive!!! Sometimes they like to go up where they mine rock...Life goes on. Gonna walk the dog & do my thing today. They aren't bothering me & the carratera is running just fine :)

Could be someone shooting squirrels or another animal? We cannot be scared of every noise, otherwise time to move back NOB. I don't pay much attention to noises. This is noisy Mexico.

The OP didn't say she was scared but simply alert.

figured you slept through it...so many have hearing aids around here & could sleep peacefully through an invasion with bombs ;o). Have you ever heard gunfire from your house aside from New Years? The first one was the loudest & definitely a shotgun, close to my house, then a second a ways off...Probably just hoodlums making noise as they drove outta Dodge cause they didn't get caught. Maybe it was a big squirrel Bullwinkle!

Got to thinking perhaps the muffled sounds were at the rock quarry...they probably use a little explosives from time to time no? idk.

Woke to yet another gunshot this a.m. I thought I dreamt it but hubby said he was walking the dog w/our daughter & they had also heard it. Maybe it's one of the neighbors, I know one loco gringo that owns a gun & have heard others sound off on New Years. Hoodlums I say!

Not with guns, hehe a gun is a gun....a blast is a blast! The boom, booms muffled in a distance could have been mountain blasting but the gunshots were from guns. Noise above Chapala Haciendas?? 531444

Hi sorry for the error in salutation, I read both of your postings often..

Yes I have been here 3 years, the shots the other morning were from a large caliber gun, not fireworks, couple of rapid shots, then single, etc. I was up early and heading to Ixtlauhuacan, and had some concern. Sounded more like fire from a police gun, as I have heard some of them go off.
