I see the word brandish used to describe a number of things, and as far as I know the utah code does not use the term anyway.

As I understand it, to brandish a weapon means to display it in a threatening manner that is not justified by self defence etc... (i.e. pointing at someone or makeing its presence know in order to intimidate). To merely display a firearm inadvertently or through some other lawful use does not constitute brandishing.

By this definition brandishing would always be illegal. I also see reference to brandishing in self-defence, but I don't believe the term fits.

How does everyone else understand it?
