Shooting in the backyard?

Post by cheeriosvajj » Thu Jul 24, 2014 9:20 pm

Im currently in Indiana right now but i do live in Mn. My question is: can a police come to yard because of neighbor complains? Im talking about your property, your home, your backyard. And how can i make it legal & safe behind my backyard without having a police stop by because he sees that i have a airsoft .

most municipalities do not allow firing of any sort of projectile device in the city limits. the includes firearms, bows, BB/pellet guns, airsoft guns, slingshots, etc...

If you have any reason to be concerned, my recommendation is to not do it at all.

Check your local ordinances...have you thought about that? Or perhaps calling City Hall?
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

As stated, check with your local PD. Also....your neighbors "being cool with it" doesn't make it legal. Where do you live and we can help more? Your profile doesn't have it and we do require it.
