I Have built a shooting range in my backyard and was wondering if i could fire a firearm in it. I built it for airguns, but the backdrop is strong enough to stop a bullet. So know that i know i can safely use a firearm in my shooting range, can i legally. I live in Woodstock, and if it matters, there is a church behind my house. Thank you

Post this question on Sturmgewehr.com. The guys on that board are highly knowledgable on firearms laws, or they will usually point you in the right direction. Make sure you post this question under the "General Discussion" board.

I dont think that you can fire your gun in your backyard, being with its proximity to the church, and the fact that it may cause a disturbance, however if it is possible that you can shot a gun in your backyard im certain you will have to get some kind of permit, but I doubt you can shoot in your backyard. I will look it up for you, and get back to you.

You cannot fire a firearm within 500 yards of a residential area. Do you live in a subdivision?

Most towns in the metro area have laws against shooting firearms in their city limits. This usually includes air guns as well as BB guns, too. Get caught and you'll be treated the same as if you were shooting a .22 in the yard.

As has been said, in most counties as well, you need A LOT of land in order to be allowed to do it, though the amount you need varies by county I think.

Seems to me the most common sense answer would not to look to a forum but your local officals and laws of the county you live in.

I own a house on Yankeetown pond in Bearsville. Every weekend I've started to hear very loud gun fire - like it's within striking distance of the pond and houses. But I can't tell where it comes from. It seems odd that Bearsville/Woodstock would allow the noise of constant gunfire on Yankeetown pond. Do you know if the noise is restricted in that area. The pond is one of the area's few remaining large wet lands and also a place where a kayakers go to enjoy the peace of nature. Seems completely at odds with loud gun fire.

thanks

Silly wabbit, you're in the wrong forum. We're talking about Woodstock, GA... not Woodstock, NY.
