    Question for fellow NC residents (shooting on private property)

    Any rules I should know about, before making a range in my backyard? I know I have to be outside of city limits if i'm not mistaken and noise ordinance, but is there anything else I need to know? (minimum land size? certain feet away from street, buildings,) Property is in Rowan County.

    Also if the answer for this is, "yes you can shoot as much as you want"

    Should I do anything before I start rippin up some targets? inform neighbors, LEA, etc. just to be nice? Some thoughts and opinions will be welcomed!

    Be careful with/of your home owners insurance company. GrassRoots Gun Rights South Carolina has the story -

    http://www.scfirearms.org/Merchants/...rm/garyfaq.htm

    This is some of the good works done by grassroots gun rights organizations, like Grass Roots North Carolina http://www.grnc.org/, before they were attacked and, SCfirearms, gagged.

    If you can ... I would not be "nice" and inform the neighbors or police. You would be almost guaranteed to have issues.

    I suspect it depends on the county and the neighbors. My brother in law has land near Tarboro. We visited the Sheriff's office and asked whether they wanted/needed to know if we were going to be shooting on the property. He first looked at us like the Yankees we were and smiled to himself, then said if we planned to have a bunch of people shooting a lot and well into the evening then they would appreciate a heads up, but it was his property and he could shoot all he wanted (with the assumption we had a safe shooting lane).

    first, never, never ever ask a LEO, about the law you will get a wrong answer in a opinion.

    most counties have their ordinances on the web. do your research, you maybe can take the magitets word for it but always get cite with the actual ordnance. remember things in law are prohibited. if it is not in the law you are good to go.

    also most places just ask you to be safe in your shooting. make sure of your down range. bullets can travel a long ways
    Luke 22:36 ; 36Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

    "guns are like a Parachute, if you don't have one when you need it, you will not need one again"

    i you call a CHP a CCW then you are really stupid. period.

    Took a peek at the county ordinances at: http://library.municode.com/index.aspx?clientId=12313 and did not see anything at a quick glance that would stop you (other than just picking a safe location).
    If something is wrong for ONE person to do to another, it is still wrong if a BILLION people do it.
