Default State Laws about shooting

Does anyone know the actual state laws reguarding shooting on private land. Such as distance from dwellings, public right-a-ways, and such. I've searched the internet and found nothing but opinons from other forums. The only helpful web site had every other ordinance except the one I was looking for.

Make a discrete call to the Sheriff and the FWC. Better safe than sorry.

Florida doesn't define a distance that I know of it may have changed idk. But you can't shoot from or over any right of way,roadway,highway,over any occupied building,of over someone else's property without permission wether or not there is a building there.
Florida law prohibits counties & cities from regulating guns other than enforcing state and federal laws but that doesn't keep them from trying so if you neighbor calls they'll be ur your a$$ in a heartbeat trying to intimidate you and that's from personal experience(I shoot so much I think they got tired of comein to my house). As for what fwc has to say about the matter I don't know.

You may try asking Capt.Ron beermünder at www.IWillNotBeAVictim.com he may be you best source I've had a few questions in the past and he's been pretty good for answers

I think I saw it on channel 3 news saying you had to own a minium of 3 acres of land before you could discharge a firearm on private property. This was sometime back when I saw this.

This what I got from Capt.Ron :f you live within city limits, you may only fire a gun in self defense. In the county, the bullet must not leave your property, or go over an occupied domicile, public access or road way. You can not have a "gun range" unless zoned. If your neighbors complain you will eventually be arrested unless you are willing to spend money on a great attorney. They can arrest you for anything

Nothing unreasonable about any of that stuff.
