I've been considering a move to the fine state of Ohio (have family in Williams County) and had several firearms questions:

Fullauto/silencers - go or no go? If so, are any of the local chiefs likely to sign off for me?

Looks like you've been screwed on CCW. Any chance that your governator will pass it?

I'm also considering buying a decent chunk of land in a rural area. What kind of restrictions are we looking at as far as a backyard shooting range are we looking at?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Edited since it's hard to spell when you're tired.

Coming from CA... Ohio is a free for all.

Williams is a bit north of me, but the land is rural up there I think, so there should not be problem. Toledo is due east, so living inside the limits could pose a problem, but that is Lucas Co I think.

TAFT... NO,

Zoned agricultral/farm/outside city limits, should not be a problem, mound up a pile of dirt for a berm, and shoot.

SBR 7_11,

Thanks for the quick reply. Sounds like the Ohio population may just go up by two.

Yep, you could do a lot worse, BluDragon. Not having CCW blows, but that won't be much of a step down for you. Besides the questions you asked, there is no registration for handguns or longguns (other than the Federal 4473). That's something I got used to growing up here, and I'm constantly surprised by being in states where you have to get a permit just to buy or own a gun. Ohio rocks in that regard.
