i do not know the WV laws but in VA shooting on private land is lightly regulated except in the cities and more populus counties. Shooting on public land is highly regulated. You can only shoot, except in self defence, while hunting or on designated ranges. As was stated above the local county or city ordinces would cover discharge of weapons, many places probably have no rule at all in regards to private land. Your best bet would be to find a friend with enough land to allow for shooting, private clubs or public ranges.

Edit to add:

http://www.wvdnr.gov/hunting/laws.shtm

Lists the hunting laws/regs which are similar to VA. No carrying of guns during the off-season, except permit holders. So it looks like general target shooting on public lands is not allowed.
