I was going spend the money and build a nice berm to shoot just hand guns into as I don't have the distance to shoot rifles and not really into shotguns . I am still researching this issue I emailed the county judge executive about any county zoning or ordinances that might be in place and have not received a reply back yet.
So, you refuse to tell us what county you live in. Got it. This post was a waste of my time, thanks.
