Default Personal 100 yd shooting range, how to?

Anyone know what it takes to build a personal 100 yard shooting range on your property in CA?
Is there a minimum acreage?
In or out of city limits laws?
Paper work involved and with whom?

Even if you know of who to check with, I can call them up or look up their laws.
Thank you

Try contacting local law enforcement. Do you live in a rural area?

You'll get two stories from law enforcement, they know the laws or they can't know all of the laws.

I would not ask LE about setting up a range; perhaps ask about shooting on your own property but if you start talking about "setting up a range" - you will be waving red flags unnecessarily.

I would do research.

Offhand I am pretty sure this will cover you.

1) Need to be on property where you can shoot.
2) Need to be 150' away from occupied buildings, unless those in those buildings give you permission (I would suggest you follow the 150' rule except for YOUR OWN home/structures).
3) Need a good backstop to cover your rounds and ANY possible stray rounds.
4) Need a good relationship with your neighbors - don't want them freaking out when you shoot.

I hear people shooting (legally) in my neighborhood virtually every weekend.
