Bad idea, then. Even if your relatives don't object to your having a bulldozer scrape you a nice 10' high berm, you'd surely get a host of complaints about the noise. The nearest neighbors to my place were a half-mile away, and too deaf to hear it thunder. Ideal, really. My ex-wife probably still has the place. I'd set you up, but trust me on this--after a few years with her, the only thing you'd feel like shooting is yourself.

Yep, looks like I will have to shoot elsewhere

It's too bad though, shooting on your own land is so much more fun because you can use reactive targets.

I would love to have a place to shoot at tannerite targets. No land around for me though.

There's one difference between tannerite targets and democrats: The tannerite leaves a white smoke cloud, the democrat, yella....

Well, Instead of Using a bulldozer, you could rent a smaller(such as A Kubota or Deer) skiploader, and do it all pretty well.
Not perfect, but O.K. ... and it's fun

120 acres and you can't set up a range?

2007? On some topics, checking the thread's date can matter.
