This happened Wednesday about 5 miles from me. I can’t begin to imagine what it would be like living in fear from a neighbor that makes constant death threats. I’m not sure if the police were aware of his hostility before it all went terribly wrong.

It appears that the two were feuding for quite a while. Often times, this happens because neither side will back down. So, it just escalates, and everyone loses in the end.

Why I open carry. Less reaction time but I carry a Kimber full size 45 auto. You'd be surprised how respectful people are when they see a 45 on your hip.

If I don't have the Kimber, I carry a Smith Model 29 44RM 'Dirty Harry Special but I prefer the Kimber. The 29 is so heavy it pulls my drawers down...... 😀

Normally, the person requesting a survey pays for it.

Hang on, the one bright spot during the marathon thread-on-the-subject-we-must-not-mention was when you said the Kimber pulled your pants down. Did you mean the Smith?

If I said that, I stand corrected. Yes the model 29, not the Kimber.

Good neighbors are worth their weight in gold.

No neighbors also ain't that bad either. I only have one neighbor that is relatively close by city standards. They are great and I appreciate them and I think they appreciate me as well.

I agree, no neighbors is even better in my book.

My neighbors are cows on one side, trees on all other sides. Down my road, the nearest people are about 3/4 mile.

I can't remember why I ever liked living in a subdivision...

Sometimes. Most times not. My ONLY neighbor is the 24 year old gal and her 2 year old kid that rents the house next to the farm and I own the house (among others). Has a nice deck on the back and in the summer she lays out there and gets a tan and I get the bino's out and observe. Never said I wasn't a dirty old man, cause I am. Nice chassis. I just look. Anything else would cause me to be living in the shop with bumps on my head and probably loose the rent too. Money talks with me so I just look.

We have about 300 yards road frontage. There is a neighbor 250 feet away on south side, but there's a hedgerow between us.

There are 4 houses across the road, but they're across the road.....

I've never lived in a populated area, and glad of it.

Back when I had guns I carried my 29 in a shoulder rig, kind of hard with a long torso. The kids down over the hill always have nice words, and he comes out with a cold one if Im mowing,, and I ofcourse reciprocate
