    Where can I go to find shoot zones and/or regulations pertaining to where one can legally shoot on their own property?

    Where were from in CA you absolutely cannot shoot in city limits no matter how open your land might be. Even if you live on acreage in the county, outside of city limits, it’s fairly heavily regulated. You will likely get a visit from the local deputy.

    Looking for a homestead here one of the primary things we’re looking for is to have a range on our own land, I just want to make sure that I will be able to shoot on the land we buy.

    Thanks all!

    If the property is in the City Limits of a town or city then that City that makes the regulations. (Normally No Shooting)
    If a rural area it depends on property size, neighbors, noise level backstop and Etc.

    The city limits of the following butt up to each other Oklahoma City - Yukon - Piedmont - El Reno - Mustang - Banner - Edmond - Moore - Bethany - War Acres - and Etc.

    Oklahoma County is almost 100% City Limits

    As stated above check the city ordances( most times you can find them online from each city's website) as far as the county it varies from county to county but i would check with the county LEO to be certain stating your location cause if there are other dwellings in the area you have to make sure your far enough away from them, if nothing else visit with the neighbors in the area and ask questions to get their input on the issue you will find some will be ok with it and others no matter whether it is legal they will complain about it.

    AFAIK, there are no state- or county-level laws in Oklahoma regarding target shooting on your own property (hunting and self defense are another matter), just city ordinances. And, as Uncle TK noted, pretty much everything from Norman to Edmond in central Oklahoma is inside some city's limits because a bunch of cities went on an annexation tear back in the '60s (mostly, I think, to block Oklahoma City's expansion).

    I can't point you to a source, but I will say your no longer in a communist state..!! There are a handful of us here that have their own range.. No city limits and the farther out the better.. 1 fellow here is in a community and he's had some trouble.. I had the sheriff's out and they laughed at the complaint of the neighbor.. Proper construction and you should be sitting pretty, Safety is #1.. Your hip to the world today so just cover your 6 and deal with nervous nellies as they come.. These berms are constructed like a C to capture any spall.. I would not talk to future neighbors, you'd be the new kid and they owe you nothing.. In my area shooting is regular and almost contagious, like keeping up with the Jones.. You'll need a tractor with FEL or a wad of cash to accomplish this.. The wad of cash would make a big dent on a tractor which ya need to be a country boy anyway.. Good Luck brother.. 20190721_165703.jpg

    Some guys have all the luxuries. I don't have a fancy cheater stick on my loader like you. I just have to go by eye and feel to know if my bucket is level.

    I live about 11 miles south of Blanchard, and never had a issue shooting, around here its normal to hear pops going off around us. Almost kind of like music to your ears, at least knowing if something happens somebody has you covered.

    I was building a house north of Porter in Wagoner County. When visiting the county for a house permit they told me I could not build a range on my land after asking. So, I didn’t. I had them dig a whole in the side of a hill to pull out the pad dirt for the house. I just occasionally shoot into that hole in the hill.
