    As for the dog ... invisible fencing?
    Is it brandishing if your on your own property, at night?

    As far as the dog's reaction, is this by any chance a herding breed. Border Collies in particular have an in bred instinct to drop to their bellys as part of the technic they use when herding sheep. We had a few in my dog's class and it was classic to watch them do this when they were sizing up a situation.
    The dog may have been on alert, but then took a back seat once the OP arrived on scene.

    I'm sure a lot would depend on the individual state and its laws, but in general, brandishing doesn't have location or time limitations.

    Trying to figure out what you mean by these 2 statements???
    You announced yourself and then you said you wish you had ID'd yourself?

    Next time if you flash your light (especially if you use morse code) he should be smart enough to figure out that its you. Apparently this was the first time he had seen you announce yourself and flash your light?

    Announced, as in “hey Bob.’



    Identified as in "Hey, Bob it’s me Treo"

    Did you get at least three steps? Three steps towards the door?

    On a more serious note: Weather tactically challenged or not, at least your neighbor is pro 2a? And props for looking out for his dog too! I hope that you can encourage him to stay safe, and teach him some tricks! Should I be in that situation, I'd have shouted out

    "Hey Wayne Its GK71, got a sec?!?"

    but thats just me

    Update from the neighbor; he can’t find anything wrong W/the dog. He still thinks there was someone in the back yard (I don’t the goose would have gone ballistic) and he told me he didn’t know I was there until I lit him up. He also told me the light blinded him he couldn’t see anything and he acknowledged that he would have been better prepared W/ a round up.

    He also said my voice is what convinced him I was a cop (as opposed to a bad guy) I guess I still have my "command voice"

    Oldvet I am not sure where Treo lives. But out here you can walk out in your yard with a gun and your neighbors won't go nuts. I carry every time I go out. Depending on the time of year it dictates how big of a gun I carry. If the bears or big cats are active. I have their tracks in my driveway. CO is a lot different than the east coast.
    You should try it. You might like it. Wait! I am sorry. I forgot we are all filled up.

    Maybe you should tell the neighbor that he needs to keep the gun hid, it's a game that we play to see if we can carry without anyone knowing it. LOL
