...Extend an olive branch...
I don't know what I would have done in gold's situation but--if the first time I met my neighbor it was because he was on my property, without being invited, and had a gun strapped on his hip... let's just say I would consider that behavior to be WAY out of line. And, at his 'other home' his neighbors are suing him: Stee-rike TWO!!!
Well you be in controversy all the time cause it happens here. Hunters cross your land with guns. Some just come to see what you are doing. Some are hiking. Some are lost.
Every house I've built here, 3 so far, I'd pull on to the lot to find different neighbors all over it, sometimes with their kids. Everyone of them I asked not to be here when I'm not here for liability reasons, complied.
The second the property lines were messed with you should contact the local zoning board. They will put an end to that nonsense. Don't want him on your land, call the sheriff.
I just don't get/like the controversy myself. I know how things can escalate. That said, I have 5 guns here and quite the arsenal of other "weapons", no one really fucks with me as they know I'm the crazy Italian in the neighborhood. (Yes, I fire guns in my back yard too. No, I'm not a bully). I'm probably one of the best neighbors you'd ever have actually.
Too bad about your situation Paul, once a bad neighbor probably always a bad neighbor.
