    I'm moving down to Bedford County in about 2 weeks onto a fairly large plot of land. I'm trying to figure out what the VA State and local laws are pertaining to discharging firearms on private property.

    I've searched the VA State LIS (http://leg1.state.va.us/000/lst/LS897099.HTM) and the list of local firearms ordinances (http://www.dgif.state.va.us/hunting/regulations/local-ordinances.pdf) which do not apply to Bedford County. The only VA State laws I was able to find in the LIS are pertaining to public property and shooting from vehicles, across roadways, in public buildings, etc...

    Can someone point me in the right direction for laws that pertain to minimum distances from other residences/buildings required to discharge firearms on private property?

    If there's any law for distances it will be posted in the Game and Inland Fisheries book. I don't think you have anything to worry about. There's no laws that I'm aware of in Bedford Co. and that's not too far from me. If you wanted to be on the safe side I'd assume you could call the county police over there and ask them about any local ordinances that would have to do with firearms but I think you're in good shape.

    Sounds like a plan to me! (that's if your talking to anyone in this conversation lol) Are you close to Goode store if you don't mind me asking? It is very peaceful out there, you will enjoy it I'm sure.

    It'll be good to have another Tacoma owner in the area, the only other person I know of is Fire931. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

I'm just starting my search now but hope to have find something while the market is still down. Good luck with the move and hope the trail turns out to be a good one.

    we are just renting because i'm in the military and its not practical to keep purchasing houses every time i move, and plus we are still under water on a house up in MD that i'm renting out to break even. the realtor we used was hill city realty, karen lovekamp. they do rentals and sales and she was pretty nice and straight forward to deal with.

    not sure what your price range is but we looked at this one which is for sale and for rent in bedford city. its absolutely awesome but a little too far from my work (lynchburg).

    yeah that definitely makes sense to rent in your case. I have an apartment here where I work so I am just looking for some property that I can hunt and possibly build a cabin on one day. Thanks for the quick response.
