Thank you for correcting my mistake, and I absolutely apologize for butchering the English language.

There are no good reasons for redundant terms such as hot water heater, 4 a.m. in the morning, killed dead, or goofy Californians.

I'll try to do better next time.

Actually, it is legal to shoot in national forests. You should bring paper targets and target stands (please don't tack them up to a tree) with you and take them when you leave. Setting off fireworks can generally be dangerous. Perhaps you might know someone who might have access to a quarry, that would be an excellent place to do both shooting and fireworks.

To the OP, regardless of what I or anyone else on this forum tells you, if you plan to do any kind of shooting/fireworks in the National Forest, you should contact them first to determine the legality.

See: Mark Twain National Forest - Home Page - US Forest Service

Although, what is so wrong with those Conservation Department shooting ranges? It seems like there is one in every other county, and most of the ones I've been to have been pretty nice, and always empty. They also include real backstops and a controlled shooting environment...you don't have to worry about stray bullets harming someone/something else.

I don't know exactly where you are in Missouri, but in my neck of the woods, they (they being Missouri natives) shoot off fireworks near wooded areas all the time. My neighbors would say, as long as an area has been subject to regular, controlled burns, it's pretty safe.

I wonder what the response would have been if the OP had been from Arkansas or Nebraska.

OP, I couldn't tell you where to go ... most folks in my area have at least a few acres and they shoot and set off fireworks on their own land. Welcome to Missouri.

Hey Redneck51; Just ignore the other rednecks and do what you want on your own property out in the county away from any town etc.
