I found this on another site and thought it raised some good questions about what you would do in the same situation. I did not see it anywhere on here but if it is please delete, move or combine.
The homeowner has installed a video camera in his garage because of previous thefts. He sees two men enter. Family calls 911 and he goes to confront them and gets a rather nasty surprise.
The question I have is this. What would you do in the same situation and in accordance with your state laws? What if anything would you have done tactically different?
For those of you who think the BG's are afraid of you and your master blaster this comment from the other site is absolutely correct.
Did you notice how unintimidated the bad guy was that the resident had a pistol? Remember that the next time you hear "there's nothing more intimidating than a...".
Most REAL bad guys are not intimidated by laser beams, racking shotguns actions, or how well armed you are. Especially the young stupid ones.
Thanks to 9mmParabellum from warrior talk for the original post good stuff brother.
