Hang tough and keep on the high road. It may not end well, but it will end and you'll walk away clean.

I went through the same crap with my (out)-laws before my FIL passed on, they threatened to have his utilities cut off unless we gave them his checkbook and all house keys. This was while he was in the hospital with a stroke that was induced by----- you guessed it, an attack by his own alcoholic daughter one night. Oh, and just as frosting, my BIL was demanding that I turn over all of the firearms, including one specific Marlin 30/30 that was mine to begin with and I had stored in my FIL's house when my kids were born because I didn't have a gun safe at the time. Funny thing is that my FIL had signed over all of his guns, notarized in writing with serial numbers noted, to me a year or so before that.

Don't give an inch but also don't make a move impulsively either. Stay strong. Don't take the bait.

Yes. Legally, the only thing that can go into a federal mailbox is the mail.

You'll have to drop it on the front porch or on the hood of his car......

Or hide it in the landscape so he can smell it but not be able to find it easily.

After dad passed almost a decade ago, mom sold my cousin
94 Winchester
38 spl
22 revolver (never registered, IRC, it walked out of the mfg plant)

for a whopping $1k, and then he came bragging to me the rifle appraised at 10k, I don't remember the caliber, 10k does sound a LOT high, and I do doubt it, but it was grandpa's rifle. Mom "claims" she asked me, but I sure don't remember the conversation.

As to holding my head high, absolutely. EVERYTHING I did was right, and ALWAYS in mom's best interest. She made some unfortunately bad decisions that I couldn't change or fix. That dream was really a telling point to me. I maybe able to work some amazing solutions, but there's only so much a mortal can do.
