Hi, I know this sounds a bit far fetched, but I am just thinking possibly in a few months or so, I may like to go try to find a rental where I can setup my own personal shooting range. Yes, it kinda been a desire of mine now, since I have taken a great interest in firearms, but sadly where I live I am both too busy to drive to shooting range and very far from most shooting ranges. The decent shooting ranges near me are at least a 45 minute drive and are quite costly. Well, I don't have money to buy a place and feel safer, with the economy being in the toilet and all, to just go ahead and rent a place. Around here, most landlords give long leases and seem to be more easygoing. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had advice and tips on what to do if you wanted to rent a property with acreage that you would want to set up as a personal range. I know some of the basic answers to this question, be far from neighbors, know where your bullets are going, don't shoot across rivers, roads, etc etc. I would like to learn about how to create a backstop and setting up a safe and legal shooting area. Probably, I am getting ahead of myself, but I like to learn about the proper safety and range equipment most people use on their own property, if they have this setup. I am not really sure about the laws and also the legality of shooting on rented land. Perhaps, I am at risk of commiting a crime, seeing I am not a land owner? Also, if I am interested to be shooting on the land, should I consult the landlords in advance or should I just not tell them, seeing they may never know about it anyway? Would notifying local law enforcement also be important, to notify them I would be doing target shooting on the property, so they don't mistake it for a threat or illegal hunting, etc? What is the minimum amount of acreage that many would think is feasible to set up a range where you can shoot out to around 500-1000 yards? ANyone know what are some of the best places in Oregon/Washington that to setup a small range in your house's property? This is the main area I am looking to move. I am sure if I lived in Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Colorado, I would have way more options. I have been considering Eastern Oregon, as I know it is more shooter friendly environment and land more open land, however I do like the greenery and warmer weather in the westside. Its hard to leave where I am based. I know most likely I won't be able to achieve this desire, perhaps I will just have to settle moving closer to a shooting range or to rural area where I can shoot. Oh well, I thought it was worth looking into, in case my desire can become a reality.
