I'm within easy driving distance of the Daniel Boone National Forest (700,000+ acres) and shooting/hunting is allowed in almost all of it. There are two public ranges I know about but I just go to a range at a private club.
Jim's Rules of Carry: 1. Any gun is better than no gun. 2. A gun that is reliable is better than a gun that is not. 3. A hole in the right place is better than a hole in the wrong place. 4. A bigger hole is a better hole.
