I wouldnt, but Im just super cautious. Just because you can doesnt mean its smart. You don't have a ton of room for error there. You should be ok just taking a couple of shots to sight in, but I wouldn't plink or take it out and empty 3 or 4 mags just for the hell of it back there. If you do I would not use FMJ just to be on the safe side. Use something softer. My general opinion is that if you have to ask, the answer is probably no.

Around here, the law says something about not being in a compact urban area, meaning basically, downtown. And outside of that, there is a rule saying you have to be 300' away from any inhabited building. Although, I'm not completely clear on the rules. But I'm pretty sure it says nothing about the actual acreage…...

That is the dumbest, ugliest stock ever created. I suppose it serves a purpose but dang.

sounds like you are risking a lot of trouble. heck your AR could eject your brass damn near across an acre lol. OK not really, but I'll put it this way: if my neighbor was shooting an AR outdoors and our lot sizes were only an acre - or only a couple hundred yards away - I'd be visiting him promptly

Find a range to go to
