(4) Any person who recreationally discharges a firearm outdoors, including target shooting, in an area that the person knows or reasonably should know is primarily residential in nature and that has a residential density of one or more dwelling units per acre, commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083. This subsection does not apply:
(a) To a person lawfully defending life or property or performing official duties requiring the discharge of a firearm;
(b) If, under the circumstances, the discharge does not pose a reasonably foreseeable risk to life, safety, or property; or
(c) To a person who accidentally discharges a firearm.
Seems like theres a lot open to interpretation in that statue. I'd ask whoever your neighbors are gonna call.
so then we can hunt ducks in pine island sound?
Yeah man get after it. No need to even plug your gun or use steel shot since that area is part of a new program to attract the mentally handicapped to the sport. Have fun out there and be safe!
