The 10 acres cannot be within 600 feet of any residential subdivision or residential properties or within 150 feet of any occupied building. Center or rim fired rifles and pistols of any caliber can only be fired on tracts of land greater than 50 acres. Those 50 acres cannot be within 1,000 feet of public-use land, public schools, or day-care facilities. The 50 acres also cannot be within 600 feet of any residential subdivision or residential properties or within 150 feet of any occupied building.  No weapon can be discharged where its bullet, pellet, BB, or arrow is expected to go beyond the boundaries of the land on which is permitted to be discharged.  [full article]
