I'm about 30 minutes out of Memphis.  We have a few different places to shoot.  Lots of woods and land out this way.  I'm out of town til 17 April but if you want to team up and do some shooting, let me know....

I'm surprised there isn't. The little town I live in has a "no discharging of airguns" ordinance.

I don't think MPD would care as long as no one is complaining. I spent the better part of my youth running around WhiteHaven with a Crossman multipump. Just keep it low key.

From Memphis municipality codes: Sec. 10-32-1. - Air guns—Discharge prohibited—Exception.
It shall be a misdemeanor for any person to discharge within the limits of the city any air gun, air pistol, air rifle or BB gun, capable of discharging a metal bullet or pellet, whether propelled by spring, compressed air, expanding gas (CO2), explosive, or other force-producing means or method, except within a legally established target range or shooting gallery.

If y'all get anything going please share with the Arkansas area too, not many of us but a few that would probably like to try and join in the fun. It's not to far of a drive from here

The police do not look at BB guns the same as Firearms. Considering the amount of firearm discharges that occur daily within the city. I like the idea of a "Legally established...range..."
