No...that's not a combination.
That's a whole 3rd category of people.
If you've got the training & experience to back up your choice, and the skill to accomplish it, and truly recognize the dangers involved...then you are probably dam good at what you are do.
I would hold the BG at gunpoint (at a distance, mind you), and if they want to run, they'll get to try to outpace a Doberman, a GSD and a Border Collie simultaneously. Sounds like fun to me. Right.
I'd never get close to a BG on purpose.
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
This thread was extremely interesting! This is actually the first time I actually took the time to read all six pages. Anyway, as for my personal experience, its a little... unique. I have two homes. I spend every other week with my girlfriend at her home and the opposite week at my original home, which my parents still live. If someone breaks into my girlfriend's home, being we are both deaf, either the BG or I will die. I will never hear the BG break in. If I wake up in the middle of the night and come face to face with someone, I'll take a minute to see if I recognize him. If I don't, I'm going get my gun and will shoot, if I'm not shot already. If I do recognize him or if its the police (as has happened before), I'll just go change my shorts. Now, if this happens at MY home with my parents, then I'll just never bother waking up. My dad and our dogs will take care of everything.
For those that think that restraining a hostile invader in your home is an option should read "In The Gravest Extreme" by Massad Ayoob. In it he outlines how giving a warning or ordering the BG to drop their weapon can cost you your life. Shooting them on sight in the back if need be is the most tactically sound procedure. So the OP's scenario of disarming and apprehending a dangerous criminal violating the sanctity of my home is also a mute point.
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
These types of inflammatory exchanges may be acceptable for other forums but this is not one of them.
I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.
