The size of the property doesn't matter, just legal restrictions.
You have to keep the bullets on your property.
You cannot be in a city limits (I assume all cities ban discharge of firearms.)
Your county has not restricted shooting in some way. Here's where the acreage comes in - the state preempts counties from regulating restrictions on property that is more than 10 acres.
Many folks confuse that preemption to say you MUST have 10 acres to shoot. Not so. But if I was buying property in the future, I would buy more than 10 acres to avoid future restrictions.
Well said, oohrah...
There is a state law that prevents counties from ever passing a law restricting firearms use on property greater than 10 acres. Doesn't mean your county has ever passed a law making it illegal for 5 acre parcels- you have to check with your county... or look up the statutes for your county (or municipality if you're in city limits... many Texas towns/cities have not passed laws making shooting on your own property illegal).
If you find you are not restricted, you still have to keep the bullets on your own property- besides being a bad idea and dangerous, it's illegal to cross property lines without the other property owner's (written) permission.
I'm not in the City or any incorporated jurisdiction, rural land.I presently own 10.04 acres which are unrestricted.. I'm in the possess of dividing the land into two 5.02 acre tracts. I will retain both tracts.
Still totaling the 10 acres required to shoot on.
Would I still be able to shoot, owning both tracts?
Check with the county or contact an attorney for accurate legal information regarding the laws where you live. I live on less than five acres (not in the city) and there are no laws that keep me from shooting on my property (as long as I don't shoot across the property line and shoot safely). It all depends upon the laws where you live.
It's already been said- not enough information.
What county? Does that county have any law pertaining to shooting on your own land, with any size restrictions?
ETA: I don't think you'll get a lawyer to chime in here for free, so keep in mind our advise is worth what you're paying for it...
Did you not read my post? You do not have to have more than ten acres.
Maybe he got what he needed (or gave up). Whatever!
