I keep having to remind myself, when checking out suspicious noises.......... GRAB THE DARNED PHONE! If you get wounded, or see someone, you need to call 911, not start playing IDPA games. Plus, if you have to go outside, grab a longer gun and a bigger light. Your pocket size LED won't cut it outside. Shotguns with #4 shot are great, inside or out, at the range at whick you'd NEED to shoot for defense after dark.
