I hope this question isn't too stupid but I have been wondering about this since I bought a house in Wasilla. Where I grew up, our back yard picnic table doubled as a shooting bench. We shot ducks off of our front lawn waterfront. The only firearm restrictions were self imposed to not shoot toward our nearest neighbors house. Now that I live inside the city limits, I want to make sure I am straight on the firearm regulations so I don't get into trouble. As far as I can tell by reading the hunting regs, center fire and rim fire are not allowed, but shotguns and air rifles are, right? So if a legal bull walks into my yard and starts eating my apple trees, can I grab the shotgun and slugs and shoot him? Can I use the 410 to kill that stupid squirrel on my bird feeder? Or do I need to stick with the pellet rifle for my rodent problem? Obviously there is basic firearm safety to consider as far as where and when to shoot, and I don't plan on blasting everything in sight, but it would be nice to know if I have the option if needed.
