All states are different. In my state, there is essentially no public land where you can shoot that I've found (Louisiana). The dept. of wildlife & fisheries operates a couple of ranges on the WMAs, but with tough rules and only 100yds. Plus, you need a hunting license to use 'em.
I asked my CCW class instructor where i could shoot a watermellon (he suggested it as a good visual for gun safety for the kids). He thought and thought. He's a parish sheriff. My house is too close to neighbors; there is no BLM land to speak of; all the ranges prohibit non-paper targets. He said he'd have to get back to me.
I finally bought into a hunting lease where there isn't a specific prohibition on shooting, so maybe i can finally shoot a watermellon.
