The reason I went through the trouble of having a private range is a deputy can't just roll up and say "no more shooting" without a legal reason. When they started clearing the property next to mine for a subdivision I went to the board of commissioners to get my property zoned light commercial and a private range approved. Getting my range approved by the county has saved me a lot of grief.
