    Default Home gun/ rifle range

    I'm looking for documentation stating the rules and regulations for firing a rifle / handgun on my property in Beaver County. I have a very large lot, and want to do some zeroing and target shooting. There will be a backstop of packed earth over tires, probaly about 6 feet high. But I want to know what the legal requirement and restrictions are.

    It really depends on where you live. In Brighton Twp. you are only allowed to shoot while hunting. You have to check your local ordinances.
