If you can hear their bullets ricocheting, it's a concern. Doesn't matter how well you know them or not.That stance seems problematic. I can complain about neighbors having a loud property, but not about them repeatedly shooting a gun 2' from my window?
It is a safety issue, amazed the cops cannot see that. For example, if I knew these people and that they were experienced with firearms and safe in using them, then there would be no concern.
Discharging them in a manner which results in ricochets is not discharging them in a safe manner.But searching through code all I am finding is that the bullets cannot leave the private property and the firearm must be discharged in a safe manner.
Ricochets can occur with any bullet, and with upwards of 90% of the impact velocity. While the bullet is usually deformed, it's not necessary deformed in a manner that increases drag by an appreciable amount.
The noise factor remains a factor. Depends on if creating an inordinate amount of noise is against the law in your country.Currently no mention of any minimum distance. What about me going out and target practicing on my private land, behind them, (shooting safely with bullet not leaving my land, into a berm NOT in their direction!) Seems like that would have been a concern to them, and suppose there would have been some law against me doing that? At any rate, target practicing next to a neighbor's house seems like an awesome way to legally harass them.
