    Funny thing, I was just out in the yard policing brass this afternoon and heard a bunch of gun shots not too far away. This is NORMAL around here. And like I said before, this woman knows me. Well enough, that when she was on the phone with 911 she told them my first and last name ... LOL!

    I'm guessing that they may have been out back enjoying their pool and the gunshots startled her. Maybe she had never been outside when we were shooting before. But then again, there was that time months ago where she stopped in the street watching my son and I practice. I just don't get it and think I may just ignore her and not make contact.
    Please do not pander to this woman's arrogant elitist sense that she is entitled to have everyone else live their lives according to what she thinks is "acceptable".

    I don't know about how you would view contacting her but I suspect she would look at it as if you came to grovel and she would be so very pleased that you stopped by to get her permission first.

    They are basically unable to be educated when it come to logic and facts. Do not bother arguing with them is is akin to arguing with an idiot. We as Gun Owners, whether collectors, CCW or just owners, are not doing anything wrong. The problem is 100% and irrevocably theirs. So again I say (refer to first sentence).

    I wouldn't give her a heads-up either and you are right about her possible crazed perception if you walk up to her door. Her tactics could be politically motivated to harass you. I would not ask for her permission either and in the event she calls you while your practicing you can always invite her, if you feel comfortable with it (don't do this while you are alone; you should have someone else with you - a good witness).

    One thing I have learned is aggressive behavior is not constructive to relationship building and, unfortunately, if one has a firearm and acts aggressively even though he is right, it doesn't look good in the eyes of the media or the police.

    Agreed, however, one should be able to communicate what you have said without the implied tone of your writing.

    Do not talk to her before you exercise your rights. It gives the impression you feel guilty or you need to ask for permission. The only "heads up" you should give her is that if she decides to start interfering with you again, she is going to get flipped off.
