    Does anyone know how many acres of property one must have to shoot firearms freely in Central Florida?

    Prob just be in the county and have no projectiles leave the property. City limits are always a no go in FL from my experience in Central FL and North FL.

    This is one of those check your local statutes, codes, and ordinances questions. Any answer you get here may get you in a pile of trouble.

    I live in Seminole County, but I don't work for Seminole County or Orange County, so I am not sure of the laws. However I know some who live in both and shoot on property. The Orande County guy lives in East Orange, and has a ton of downed trees piled up as a backstop, and open country behind him, without any people wandering around. he also fires nothing but .22s.

    The Seminole County guy has about 8 acres, and had a bull dozer come in and build a berm for him to shoot at. It is about 10-12 feet high, and there is a lake behind it. He shoots everything he has I understand.

    This is one of those questions that really can't be answered by anyone but the OP. The reason is because it doesn't concern gun laws. What he's talking about is basically land use laws, and unlike the the local's relative impotence about gun law in Florida, they can do almost anything they want with zoning and public nuisance ordinances.

    I have seen many people around the Ocala National Forest use there yard for a range. Some of them did nothing and some made major safety improvements. Most of them got away with it, but a lot of that had to do with cooperative neighbors. Unfortunately there is no solid answer to the OP's question since there are so many areas of law that would cover it, and no real definition of outdoor range requirements.

    County ordinances regulate firearms usage on private property in Santa Rosa.
