Hi people. New to the sight, not neccesarily new to the gun world. I have hunted since I was little. I bought my first handgun about 10 years ago. Unfortunately I don't get to shoot much. Not too many places for the puclic to shoot down here on the coast. The one club that I know about just rasied their membership dues up to $200. Can't afford that. Anyways, thought I'd say hi.
Stay Frosty,
Mike

Not too many public places to shoot up in New York, either. Stinks, doesn't it?

Anyway, welcome to the forum!

Is it relaxed any, shooting-wise, farther north away from the coast? Can persons who own a reasonably sized piece of land, outside big city jurisdiction, shoot on their own property legally? How large a piece of land would allow this?

Lots of questions, I know, but I like Miss. enough to one day want to live there- if I can keep shooting.

I'm not a law expert but, I believe that as long as you are outside a city's corporate limits you can shoot. Within reason anyway. I mean if you lived in a subdivision outside corporate limits, yeah, that would be a problem.
If you own a couple of acres in the county and your careful about it you could most likely shoot as long as no one complained. I believe definately you could do it if you had property that backed up to wooded acreage with no houses behind them for a few hundred yards. MS is pretty generous when it comes to gun laws. We have Concealed carry, castle doctrine, - it even considers your vehicle an extension of your home. Meaning your afforded the same rights to self defense in your vehicle.
