Target shooting in baltimore county

Hello,
I have recently bought 2 acres in reisterstown area....I am trying to establish how i can target shoot on my own property here. I have seen a thread on this forum which had some relevant info from years ago, but there is still some info that i need to nail down in order to proceed. Anyone that helps me is welcome to come shoot here

This is the regulation that applies to my situation ( i am just BARELY inside the zone where i must file with police dept. for shooting other than hunting with shotgun)
http://baltimoreco-md.elaws.us/code/...t2_sec17-2-101

In section 2c (i) it mentions " On a permanently located, properly posted, and bona fide target range, the location of which has been filed with the Police Department"

Can anyone tell me how to establish a permanently located bona fide range and file with police? My local precinct has no clue!
thanks

Good luck finding that answer. I've searched every code and licensing requirements and have not been able to find the answer. My guess is that the wording sounded good to the fools on the council so they went with it. Catch 22.

2 acres seems a bit small for anything fun. most people cite some hunting statutes about distance from dwellings etc...

If you really want to get to the bottom of this, you could call Mike Field

If the law is really that vague, create a berm of dirt ("permanent"), a sign, and send it to the police office as notice.

My guess is, the complaints will mostly be about noise, so dont shoot in the evening after dark, or on Sunday morning.

This is probably the best advice. Depending on how close your neighbors are could be a problem. Especially with the noise.

Man, to me that says inspectors, clearing by permit, zoning issues raised, insurance, blah, blah, blah, money and time wasted. Sorry, but that should have been done before you bought.
