I was having a discussion elsewhere and a point of disagreement was the amount of land needed to shoot on. I'd like to buy or build my next home where I have 4-8 acres of land in a rural setting. I found a local subdivision that's surrounded by woods and rolling pasture land. The minimum plot size is 3 acres. The larger ones are big enough for horses and a barn. In my opinion, 4 or 5 acres in a rural area is a reasonable amount of space to safely target practice on provided that you have a good backdrop and no dwellings/people downrange or to the sides of where you're shooting. I'm basing this off of my parent's property where I grew up. 5 acres of wooded property with a clearing that I still shoot in to this day. The nearest neighbor is 150yards away from the clearing, but we shoot in the opposite direction into a backstop. What's your opinion? I'm talking about occasional daytime recreational shooting.... not a daily thing. 2-3x monthly.
