    Spine, are you out in the weeds?
    Welcome to PA and freedom
    You have 25 acres
    Can you see your neighbors houses?
    Make a big dirt pile where you wont be shooting at anyones house beyond the back stop.
    Be safe
    Shoot during reasonable hours
    Change your address to make Pa your legal place of residence
    You can Open carry on your property unless someone can prove a person from another state leaves their second amendment rights at the border regardless of their being on their OWN property in PA
    Get a Pa LTCf and you can conceal carry in Pa Buy guns, shoot on your land as you see fit
    Those gunshots you heard were other guys most likely doing the same thing; sighting in their deer rifles on a homemade backstop
    Not really out in the weeds , but once we really get in you canít see my neighbors home, and yes those were my plans for the rest ,
    Thanks 🙏

    I was confused about that since it's posted in "Pocono" region.
    If it is Jefferson county post down a bit to the "Allegheny National Forest Region".
    It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

    Since it doesn't apply to me I never thoroughly checked into it but I have several friends with tons of acreage the have targets set up to shoot off their deck, one from a covered deck.. I was told that gaming laws didn't apply to their private property and target shooting? Obviously if they are actually hunting then PGC regs would apply. Just safety issues and local ordinances.

    Maybe gunlawyer will weigh in.....

    Something I wonder about...what about caliber restrictions and distance from neighbors' houses? I figure that there are no caliber restrictions up your way but here we're restricted to shotguns.
    Thank you for keeping me safe.

    Wouldn't that shotgun restriction only apply if you are hunting and not if you are target shooting on private property? There are some private gun clubs and private ranges in Bucks that allow rifle caliber yet doesn't that county have restrictions on hunting caliber?

    I do not know and I think that gun clubs go through an approval process. I am curious though.
    Thank you for keeping me safe.
