Looking for accurate info/case history, previous threads, terminology, real world encounters etc. on this subject: I find it interesting that if a homeowner (I've done this) goes outside w/ a weapon in your pjs or bathrobe w/ a fiream that's not holstered, you can be cited for "brandishing." I've looked for information to overcome that but always come up shorthanded because the law will tend to side w/ the "perception" of the person you're confronting. To that end, I've utilized a "throw over holster" for night time forays into the yard. A sling doesn't seem to be enough for a long gun though. I'd like to use the long gun w/ the light attached but that's clearly and immediately threatening. I understand the concept of imminent threat and an incursion into the home, duty to retreat or not etc. and the fact that you cannot defend property w/ deadly force.... But I'm sure not going out into the yard unarmed when I clearly hear people rifling around in the shop. Thanks in advance for your input and direction.
