    2:00 AM Intruder

    You are asleep at night, when loud noises from your living room startle you awake. You grab you home defense weapon of choice, and you peek around the corner. There is a man at your Christmas tree, dressed in a heavy coat and big black boots, holding a large bag in one hand, and he has one of your gifts in the other hand. Your wife walks up behind you, keeping her distance. At that point the man notices you and yells a derogatory insult, apparently referring to your wife: "Ho! Ho! Ho!"

    What do you do?

    Break out the tactical cookies and deploy a half dozen toward his center mass.

    Make him very very sorry if he's not leaving what I want.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    Since it's Christmas Eve I'd take pity on him and offer him a bowl of freshly made reindeer stew.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Get him a beer

    Up to the part about the man at the Christmas tree I would have said, "dang, I shot another dog, this time lets get a white one."

    Not allowing myself to be caught up in fantasy, I'd instantly know he was a burgler dressed up in a Santa suit (probably a crazed SA bell-ringer just off duty from Wal Mart) who was putting my presents into his bag and not taking them out.

    He wouldn't be so merry when he turned around to stare down the barrel of my pump shottie - oh, his words were "Woa Woa Woa", not Ho Ho Ho

    Poor Santa-burgler would spend a few terrifying minutes laying spread-eagle/face-down on the floor (with a shotgun barrel wedged in the crack of his jolly old butt) until the cops arrived.

    Wife and I would probably share the cookies and milk while waiting for the cops as I terrified him even more by slowly chanting......
    "Out on the lawn there arose such a clatter - big load of buckshot caused Santa to splatter".

    Golly - now I'm in such a good holiday spirit - thanks!!

    Only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you, Jesus Christ and the American GI. One died for your soul, the other for your freedom.

    I asked my stock broker the other day, what I should be investing in ....his reply, canned goods n ammo !!!
