We have an individual in a heavily populated subdivision that "target practices" in his backhard with his handgun. What are the laws about discharging a weapon in a subdivision?

A person shooting firearms within a certain distance of your residence can fall under noise related disturbance of the peace laws. i.e...the fiasco with the Taylorsville firing range sometime back.

you may be right but it would likely fall under nuisance law that can be abated with a trip to court
