    I agree, I'm not calling 911 over a bump in the night. I'd investigate a little first.

    Sorry about going a bit off topic.
    The difference is exactly that. No happy switch = semi-auto = m4gery.
    Happy switch = full-auto = M4.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    Actually, the scenario specified that the bump in the night was a cause for concern:

    An hour or so later, something goes bump in the night. Wakes you again. This time, coupled with the earlier happenings, you fear something is up.
    the house is a typical American two story, bedrooms up, kitchen living room etc down....
    If I genuinely "fear something is up", I am going to treat it that way.

    Unfortunately, the only defensive position I can hold puts my son in the line of fire. This is the scenario in my house. Dog: either sleeping or growling... you never know . Wife: backup (cue chambered shotgun sound)then call 911. Me: .45 and surefire VERY actively seeking the source of sound. While it's not the safest route, it's the only choice I have with the layout of my house. Hopefully son wakes up too, he knows the hiding place drill. This would keep him out of the line of fire.

    Ensure the motion sensors on the claymores are active and go back to sleep.

    Seriously though, tell my wife to go check it out and go back to sleep. If it's a problem she'll give a hollar, if not she'll get back to bed and not bother me. There are so many bumps in the night around here I can't be bothered unless someone is hollaring or I can tell someone is in the house that isn't supposed to be. With all the creaks and squeaks in the house it's better than a motion sensor tracking program.

    In my case, I'll turn over and go back to sleep. The only reason the dog is barking is because a cat or another dog is walking along our fenceline or is in the yard.

    In real terms, my 2yo sleeps in another room. I am going after him. I, the wife, and baby all sleep in the master. The door to my sons room is only a couple of yards away from the master. Unfortunately, I expose myself by leaving the bedroom, but the safety of my family is more important than my own.

    If when leaving the bedroom I happen to see someone in the house (single story), I am heading away from the family occupied rooms to draw the BG to me. I am armed with my SureFire and a Taurus PT-101. The wife is armed with a cell phone (she isn't "into" guns). When I give her the go ahead, she goes to Stephens room, gathers him and heads out the window with both babies. I handle the rest from there.
