    Question Shooting on ones own property

    Are there any PA state or township (President) specific regulations about shooting firearms on ones own property...? Not speaking of common sense rules, but any actual laws.

    I would simply give the township a call and ask.

    State no. But some municipalities have a "no discharging of firearms" ordinance.

    Call your county and township.

    We have land in West Brandywine TWP in Chester County, There is no law against it and no "discharge of firearms" ordinance, however there is a poorly written sound ordinance that is causing people to complain.

    Like Benfoo said check your local ordinance and possibly ask CLEO, I know asking them could go either way.

    If you live in Oil City, it appears to be against the law.
