Some good news...
I looked again more thoroughly at the gun laws. It appears that the law I cited about shooting within 100 yards of a road was either a) an older law that has since been overturned/re-written; b.) in reference to a state law that allows individual counties to outlaw shooting up to within 100 yards of the road.
So this means I can shoot on my property.
I will still further research this and perhaps make an anonymous phone call to the county or to the sherriff.
This makes me very happy, as I sorely missed looking at the .22 hanging above my door and feeling like I could go out and shoot.
Also in good news, I finished the book project I've been working on. More about this later, if it actually gets published, but this means I have some money coming my way to spend, in part, on guns.
I would like to purchase a scope for the rifle (.300 WSM) and a new/newly used shotty. My budget scope is a Leupold VX-II for about $300. I need to do a little more research, but I
don't really see a need to shoot out farther than 500 yards (at this time). I could easily spend 2 or 3 times that amount, but it's hard to justify right now.
If I go this route, which seems probable, I am looking for an 8-shot Mossy Persuader, with the butstock. Something very tacticool. An end of the world pump gun. This will round out my arsenal nicely.
(Also on the docket is a .22 Marlin 60, whenever I can find an old school one around here. I will snap it up when I find it.)
