I agree, it's going to take time for him to adjust. I'd maybe let him hear the noise if it's someone doing it, then walk him over there and show him what it is. Otherwise, time is your friend here.
At my barn we've got a gun happy neighbor. The horses slowly, but surely have gotten used to it. I have a two year old I recently brought home from training we were trail riding in the back field when he decided to start shooting. He spooked, but has learned it's normal.
