Great post, 03. And I agree with Vincine's post - we should all reflect manners to others. It will only do good for us gun enthusiasts.

My property is zoned as a gun range. Does that satisfy you? Believe it or not virtually all gun ranges are on private property. I never opened a gun range but the paperwork is complete and in the courthouse. Once I got the zoning ordinance approved I decided that a private or public range was a bad idea. Boy was I right on that one!

not fully understanding then about the trespassers then. do you charge people to shoot there? how is it zoned as a gun range if it's private property?

a few more details would help us understand a bit better.

It seems like a man of your ever flowing fountain of knowledge that you have to get a business approved by the county before you can open a business. The way that the county approves many businesses is by zoning the property for that business. That way years down the road someone can't have your business closed by a complaint. They have to go to the county board of commissioners to have the zoning laws changed to do much beside gather a petition.

When the subdivision was built my land was not posted. Anyone that wanted to hunt here was welcome. I let the people that moved into the subdivision ride their 4 wheelers on my property, hunt, shoot, use it like it was theirs.

Then I discovered you cannot be kind to the public at large. They will see your property as public land. They will attempt to control what you do with your property because it interferes with their use of your own land.

Now I just hang up the phone when someone from the POA calls. My lawyer will be in his office, they can talk to him.

i guess i see things a bit differently. i have fences around my property and "No Trespassing" signs and that private property is for private use, not for the general public.

maybe where you live, you may have to get approval and permission from the county, but i don't. i live outside the city limits and can put in any business i so please to without any permits or fees.

You are sadly disillusioned. You have to have a business license to open a bank account in the name of your business. All US land is zoned in one way or another even the remote areas of Alaska. You have to provide the county with an environmental impact statement and so many other things that are a mile over your head to open a business anywhere in the US. Selling collards from the back of your truck does not count as a business.

a business license or bank account has not one thing to do with what i can or can't do on my property. a business license only has to do with a person operating a business, regardless of where they are located.

sorry, but my land must not be zoned or must be multi-zoned. i can use my property in any way that suits me. i could build a business, build a house, put in a subdivision or a trailer park if the mood hits me. i am not limited in what i can or can't do on my property. in simple terms, there are no zoning restrictions that i have to abide by.

funny i know of several people operating business's in our county that never had to provide a environmental impact statement.

Take it from someone who has lived it (in CO). If you have neighbors who are prejudice against guns and people who own and use them there is nothing you can do to get along with them short of getting rid of all your guns and NEVER shoot!
