    [QUOTE=Gilligan;5780132]You are resorting to your own stilted interpretation to avoid the truth. What answers have been provided that are inaccurate? Inaccurate = incorrect = wrong. Where did I say anyone was "inaccurate"?

    Why do Some opinions represent the last word and even carry legal weight? Where is that definition, hmmm? I did not include the definition of a court opinion because none of the opinions offered carry any legal weight or consideration. I wrongly assumed you would know the difference and for that I apologize.


    Show me a proper/legal property use letter provided by local LEO. I'll wait. WTH is that statement supposed to mean? Where did I claim to have one? And if I do it certainly isn't with me right now. I do however have serno verification on a few firearms I have purchased from private owners. You know, all that legal stuff we should do when dealing with guns and shooting.

    And btw, I didn't post any opinions. Only facts. So there. Your statement implying a person cannot get written verification of a law or ordinance from LEOs is was completely opinion. Please explain your personal experience that led to this opinion.[/QUOTE]

    LMAO. Trying to sneak out from under your failed argument, I see.

    You are not every going to obtain a "sure, shoot in your yard all you want to. It's OK" letter from any LEO. Period.

    Even my fancy official DNR "Offshore Blind and Shoreline License" says absolutely nothing about what I can shoot at, what I can shoot with, when I can shoot, how I can shoot...

    [COLOR="#FF0000"]Why not be easy on yourself and answer the question? I asked for your personal experience that would uphold your opinion. Can't answer

    You are not every going to obtain a "sure, shoot in your yard all you want to. It's OK" letter from any LEO. Period. [COLOR="#FF0000"]So, you don't believe I could go to the CCSO and get a response quoting title and code of a law?

    Even my fancy official DNR "Offshore Blind and Shoreline License" says absolutely nothing about what I can shoot at, what I can shoot with, when I can shoot, how I can shoot...
    WTF does that have to do with the OPs questions unless your duck blind is in your backyard on your property. And yes, the license does not say what you can shoot, but the migratory waterfowl laws are very clear about shooting times, what type gun must be used, and a host of other rules. Perhaps your blind may be different and the laws cease to exist there.


    For reference the OPs post try reading it for comprehension this time.


    "Does anyone know of the laws re: target shooting in one's own backyard? Is there a minimum distance from the next house? Minimum acreage? We mostly shoot a 9mm at empty bottles and a target."

    Sheriff's Office Response to Target Shooting Inquiries
    Recently, the Sheriff's Office has received inquiries from citizens regarding recreational target shooting with firearms on private property in residential neighborhoods.

    On August 10th, Captain Edward Willenborg, Commander of the Criminal Investigations Division, met with State's Attorney Richard Fritz and Assistant State's Attorney Daniel White to discuss the issue and obtain a legal opinion. SA Fritz advised there is no specific criminal statute, (state or local), preventing a citizen from conducting recreational target shooting with a firearm on his/her property. However, State's Attorney Fritz provided a civil statute 5-403.1 Private nuisance actions against sport shooting ranges found in the Annotated Code of Maryland that applies to Sport Shooting Ranges. It was the opinion of SA Fritz and ASA White that this statute could be used by a neighborhood to file a civil nuisance action against a property owner.

    The Sheriff's Office would remind anyone participating in recreational or competition target shooting or hunting with a firearm to do so safely. Safety is the responsibility of everyone. ALWAYS follow the cardinal rules for safe gun handling:

    1. ALWAYS keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
    2. ALWAYS keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
    3. ALWAYS keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
    4. KNOW your target and what is behind it.

    The consequences for the negligent handling of firearms can be severe. Potential CRIMINAL charges could range from misdemeanor Property Destruction and Reckless Endangerment to felony Assault and Homicide. Although there is no statute governing recreational target shooting on private property in a residential neighborhood, the consequences for doing so negligently are very real.

    I've always been special that way.

    "no MD statute regarding recreational shooting on private property"

    Cool beans.

    If only there was a Sportsman's Club nearby, one with fishing ponds, pistol, rifle, and archery ranges.
    Which part of "...shall not be infringed." do you not understand?

    ""

    His blind on land is covered by County law, the blind in the water is regulated by Maritime Law, it's covered in the last chapter in Chapman's Maritime Law Book.
