    Wife confronts intruder...actually kinda funny.

    I work nights (11pm-7am). My wife is home alone most nights except for our dog (80 lb pit bull mix). The other night the dog started barking at about 3am (always barks when she hears a noise). This, of course, alerted my wife. She got up, grabbed her Glock 17, walked slowly out of the bedroom, down the hall way to the kitchen. Before she reached the kitchen, she said she heard a "rustling" noise around the counter next to the refrigerator area. Note that it was still dark, she did not turn on any lights yet. She bolted back to the bedroom and called 911. The cops came, checked the house all over......nothing. No sign of anything. My wife went back into the kitchen, turned on the lights, noticed a couple of strange things out of place. First, there was a partially eaten cracker lying on the middle of the stove top, then another partially eaten cracker lying behind some dishes that were drying. Apparently a mouse had committed a home invasion and my wife called the police on the mouse. Needless to say, we set a trap, caught him and sentenced him to death by poisoning. No harm, no foul. We seem to get one of these little guys about once a year. Just a lighter story to offset all the bad things going on in the world.......my wife was prepared to go to war.

    Cute story! Sounds like your wife knows the drill pretty well.

    Pitbulls and Glocks are great against human intruders. Might I suggest a Home Defense Cat for your small, furry intruders.

    Just wait, you'll come home to a refrigerator shot full of holes! LOL

    sounds like she has the situation down.

    Great story and great job by your wife. I actually did shoot a mouse with my spring powered Marksman 1010 1911 look alike bb gun. I was about 12 and my Mom started screaming in the kitchen. I ran in and found her pointing at a cabinet. I looked and there was the enemy, mocking me. I ran to my room got my "gun" and since he was still there obviously looking for a fight I dropped the hammer and filled him with cold brass. Not trying to start a caliber war here but let me tell you that .177 ended this with a one shot stop and more than enough knock down power. That tough all his friend you do not want to bring a set of whiskers to a "gun" fight.
