22-18-4. Justifiable use of force to protect property--Use of deadly force--Duty to retreat. Any person is justified in the use of force or violence against another person when the person reasonably believes that such conduct is necessary to prevent or terminate the other person's trespass on or other criminal interference with real property or personal property lawfully in his or her possession or in the possession of another who is a member of his or her immediate family or household or of a person whose property he or she has a legal right to protect. However, the person is justified in the use of deadly force only as provided in §§ 22-16-34 and 22-16-35.

You have a tough question, I would have my weapon out if I felt threatened. That being said I wouldn't consider my property more valuable than my life. Insurance would cover lost or damaged property. If I felt people were slinking around my property and I lived out in rural area, it would be a good idea to pop off a few rounds in the ground and get them running. ( no need to confront them )
If I run into someone on my property I wouldn't pull my weapon first thing unless they act aggressively. I'd keep my distance and ask them to leave they are trespassing. (appears to be a Misdemeanor)
Protect myself and others at all cost, avoid confrontation when ever possible. Stay safe, using force is a big decision and has financial and emotional results. I personally hope I never have to pull my weapon.
( Keep in mind once you pull your weapon you now have it in your hands and have limited you options ) You have to use it or put it back in your holster in order to use a lower level of force. I believe you just showed the bad guy your not willing to use Lethal force and that might be a bad thing. To those about to light me up for that comment - No I don't mean every time you pull your weapon you must use it.
