    I wanted to find out some information in regards to shooting on your own property. What are the laws? Anything pertaining to this would be great. The only house thats by me is 150 yards away and I'm surrounded by open fields and woods.

    The 450ft rule pertains to firearm hunting. What town are you in? Have you contacted your local PD to see if there is a no discharge ordinance?

    Its amazing that we consider this a free country when we have to ask quesions like this.

    If you feel that you have a safe and adequate backstop then shoot, if there is any chance whatsoever that someone could get hurt, don't shoot. A lot of common sense is all that is necessary.

    It's private property. Who's telling you that you can't shoot on your OWN land, if you're doing it in responsible and safe manner.

    In fact, I still shoot on family land with no discharge signs in the area. Never had a problem. 1 cop stopped at my aunts one day while we were shooting, out of curiosity...He said have fun, and went on his way. Cops would always come in to say hello to my grandparents on our farm, sometimes we were out shooting, never an issue.

    Do it safely. Use your brain. Have fun.

    well then your breaking the law. This guy specifically asked about laws, my guess is he wants to follow them.

    He said have fun, and went on his way
    probably didnt wanna hear your mouth

    Not sure this makes sense. Does that mean you can commit murder on your land because it's yours and private? I know this isn't apples to apples but you still have to obey the laws whether it's private land or not...

    I'd check with the police...what can it hurt?

    how in Gods name could you possibly gleen any of this from what he said?

    The law tells you that cannot commit murder. No where does it say that you are not alowed to shoot targets on private property.

    you answered your own question, just because you "never had a problem" doesnt make it legal.
