    Does anyone know what the minimum size your property needs to be in order to shoot your firearms in your own yard? I've been searching high and low for a statute covering this issue but have been unable to find one. The closest thing I've found is the law regarding firing over a road.

    P.S. Roll Tide! :supergrin:

    Generally, you cannot shoot within 50 yards of a public road, or within 100 yards of an occupied dwelling. Both are DCNR "hunting" regs. There are some exceptions to both though.

    I am not aware of any state law that addresses the specific size of a piece of property for use as a firing range. Local ordinances may very well address that issue though. Also look into laws regarding discharging a firearm within city limits, reckless endangerment, and noise issues.

    That's what I was going to say.
