I agree that you let the LEOs clear the house. I don't carry so that I can save my stuff, I carry so that I can save my family. If they may be inside and we are all outside then my vehicle is the best means for me to protect them. Sorry Cat and Dog, you're on your own!

I'm not sure how to take what I've read here, but I know my thoughts.
Frankly, before beginning to carry take care of the basic security chores, you know, like LOCKING THE DOOR WHEN YOU LEAVE!!!
It's total lunacy to overlook locking your home simply because you are in a hurry....
But then, I wonder if someone didn't set this up just to get rid of a fruitcake...hmmm....
Some people will go to extremes to get rid of the fruitcake.

This past Thanksgiving my wife and I dropped off a lady from church at her son's, while we passed through going to my folks. When we returned we picked her up and got her home. She invite us in to see her house, having been gone 4 days my wife says sure and we can do a saftey check at the same time. I did not even think about it, nice to have the ole .45 handy and I am glad my wife thought about it.
I would rather die with good men than hide with cowards

Fruit Cake was missing, then it was an in-law, no body else would leave the watch, puter and just take the fruit cake. It was a relative pure and simple.

I can't say that I wouldn't have cleared the house my self but... if I was asked for advise I'd always say let the police do it.
ALWAYS carry! - NEVER tell!
