Hi there,

This gun had been terrorizing Causeway Bay for quite a while.  I still remember all those kids in Causeway Bay, especially those living around the present day site of World Trade Centre/Excelsior Hotel, tend to jump when this blasted gun sound its signal.  

I was one of those kids.  It had been very loud indeed until the present day gun was swapped.  It is still very lound if you are standing beside it, but not that loud for the neighbourhood.

Best Regards,

From the expression of some of the guests it is really very loud.
