Question Logistics of outdoor ranges and training facilities

Hello fellow enthusiasts,

I'm recently discharged and now that I'm easing my way into civilian life once again, I come searching for wisdom and advice.
In the future when this pandemic is behind us I'll be making moves to purchase land for tactical training and shooting that favors more dynamic training than I've seen available in the area.
While the military gave me a wide variety of skills, they forget to teach me about zoning laws and regulations, and the legal hurdles ill need to jump through to achieve this dream ... If anyone knows where I should start my research and perhaps give me some pointers I believe it will greatly benefit anyone and everyone that wants a reliable place to sharpen their skills.

Thanks in advance,
SG

Why not try to talk with someone who has gone through setting up that sort of business already? If it were me, I'd contact Reid Henrichs at Valor Ridge in TN. The worst thing he could say is, "I'm sorry. I can't help you." https://www.valorridge.com/

You could even sign up for some of his training classes and ask him in person!

Are you talking about doing this commercially, or is this more about personal use/hobby/friendly guests? And, are we talking about Maryland, or would you consider someplace like WV? Need bigger picture for more helpful answers/experience from folks.

How would a site in TN know anything about the logistics of zoning, etc... in PA?

Plenty of things about the business as a whole will be non-specific to locale. He's probably not going to find a local business that will help set up competition.
