When you pull that gun out without using it and displaying it can be called [B]banishing a weapon[/B] in some states if the two punks go to the police first and claim that you threatened them for no reason. Its a good thing you called 911. This has happened before. The law is very unfair sometimes. You would think the cops would believe the homeowner in a case like this. I had a case like this where a drunk was trying to kick my front door in and I walked out the side door with a gun in hand. The drunk ran back to his waiting buddies in the car and took off. Since I didn't call 911 first or after it happened I put myself in a bad situation if the punks decided to call the law on me.
