I have been wanting to go shooting, but I'm tired of paying to go shoot, and having to follow restrictive rules once I get to the range. I've been wanting to go shoot my Mossberg 500 shotgun in the woods or at a gravel pit, and have been wondering if that's legal. My Dad said that the Sheriff will show up and arrest me and seize the gun and ammo. Is that true? Will I be charged with shooting a legal firearm in the woods? And my Dad claims that the Sultan Basin has been closed down for years, and not to go shooting there. So I wonder, is my Dad trying to scare me into not going shooting, or would I risk running into the law?
