I live next to a beautiful,and rather large spread of Floridian forest,and it's awesome in there.As far as I know,I am the only one who wanders back there,and I've barely explored the area.I ATV back there,and I recently purchased a light-weight .22lr rifle.It was ment as a fun/security rifle for hiking/ATV'ing in the woods.Now....here's the deal,it's within city limits.The nearest house is about 150m from the entry area of the forest,but I plan to be about 200m from the nearest house.I don't plan to make my own range day out there,but I do plan to take a "few" shots (I'm only taking about 60 rounds) and from what I've heard (feel free to laugh,I've never fired or heard a .22lr before,only .223) that .22lr cannot be heard at about 100m. I would be using a mix of standard and high-velocity .22lr,and it would be sporadic shots,just plinking at random things.Would anyone give a shit,let along be able to hear it? I mean,the kids in their cars zip around the place with speakers blazing louder then me and a .22 in the woods would be.Should I worry about it? I really,really wanna go back there with the rifle,I mean,it's such a beautiful place,why should'nt I enjoy it? Thanks for you imput,it is greatly appreciated.

DITTO Lord knows we got enough giving guns a bad name as it is.

In the city limits? Absolutely not. Besides, you can hear a .22LR farther than you think. .22CB's are real quiet.... but even then, why break the law. That's not even a law worth breaking.

Yeah,you guys are right. I will however bring the rifle with me for self-defense purposes.Afterall,I'll be exploring new terrain,I don't see anything wrong with that.Boy,owning land must rock.
