    Municipal ordinance or state statute?

    FL statutes.

    I'm not sure where in NC you are, but in Wake County you have to be 1000 ft. from the nearest neighbor's house. It doesn't have anything to do w/ property lines. At least that was how I read it, maybe I'm wrong. If I can find the time I'll try to look it up and verify that.

    In FL, only state statutes apply:
    790.15 Discharging firearm in public or on residential property.—
    (1) Except as provided in subsection (2) or subsection (3), any person who knowingly discharges a firearm in any public place or on the right-of-way of any paved public road, highway, or street, who knowingly discharges any firearm over the right-of-way of any paved public road, highway, or street or over any occupied premises, or who recklessly or negligently discharges a firearm outdoors on any property used primarily as the site of a dwelling as defined in s. 776.013 or zoned exclusively for residential use commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.

    This does not aqpply in cases of legitimate SD, and I couldn't find anything on required distances, etc.

    My understanding is that in NC you were as long as you are not in city limits.
