Default Oklahoma Gun Laws

We are thinking about buying some land in SE OK in the near future. This is for future retirement, weekend getaway, emergency escape plans etc.
My question is, will I be able to shoot firearms on my own property? We are looking at 9.79 acres in Pushmahata County. Is there a limit on how much property you need to discharge a firearm on your own property?
Just wondering for target practice and the like.


Thanks,

Tim

I know up here in Norman, as long as you're outside city limits and at least for my friends house where we skeet shoot, it must be agricultural land but there isn't a certain amount of property you need. His backyard is only about an acre. Where you are, I'm not sure on the agricultural part but if you're outside city limits, you should be okay. Call the sheriff or local PD there and ask to double check though

Here in Arkansas it verys like in town or out of city limits. In the country u can pretty much do what ya want when ya want its your land!! I know u cant discharge a firearm in city limits now with that in mind self defence is somthing differant where a life is at stake. Im no attorney but i think its gana be a city thing.

Thanks, I think we will be ok. The nearest little town is 17 miles away. All there is in this area is trees, trees and more trees. Along with a few mountains. It only has dirt road access with a locked gate at the edge of the property. It will be "my city" of 10 acres so I make the rules lol.

I'm aware of that.. It's supposed to be taken more as a joke since most of the state of fairly flat...
