Instead of the bad guys fleeing upon detection, they became more aggressive and tried to break down your door which signals that they had very evil intentions for you...therefore, your reaction to reach for your Ruger GP-100 and approach the thugs aggressively was absolutely a proper reaction. I think that this incident has shown you the importance of having a firearm at home, so perhaps you should add a shotgun or tactical carbine in case that in the future this were to happen again but with armed thugs.

    Hope you are able to get some sleep tonight and congrats on how you reacted!!!
    -Yeah I know I need a good shotgun but as of now im kinda poor, I just moved in here so its kind of heart breaking when this sort of thing happens within the first 60 days of me living here. Also, my only real option for a long arm was either my 30-30 marlin lever which wouldve been over-pen way out the wazoo or my .357. My .45 sits with a dunce cap in the naughty corner.

    The adrenaline dump will keep you from getting much sleep tonight, and you will probably replay the incident over and over again in your mind tonight. Just understand that that's the adrenaline working, and it's perfectly normal.

    Tomorrow, go find a nice big ol' beef bone for your pup to enjoy - he earned it.

    As a followup, you might ask the cops (if you didn't already) if anyone else in the area has had a burglary or break-in similar to what you almost experienced.
    Thanks, and yes, he deserves something mighty fine for being the hero of the night. I credit him fully. Tomorrow, I see lots of noms in his future.
    -crap, didnt ask the cops because I was still, and am still, rattled.

    It sounds like you did fine, under the circumstances.
    I would suggest window coverings, no windows of mine can see inside the house at night. If you can be seen through them, you can be shot through them.
    I agreee with getting a boomer.

    So did I over react drawing my weapon as I approached the threat trying to do a B&E right in front of me? Finger wasnt ready until I was ready to take a life.
    Over react NO; two BGs trying to kick down door are not asking to solicit contributions for the Red Cross or the Police Benevolent Association.

    Let's see, now; multiple intruders attempting to break down the door, you are inside, they say "OH SNAP" (or something rougly similar) and depart the scene in a timely manner. Officers respond, as usual, well after the bad guys have gone away.

    Done deal. You have successfully defended your home without harm to yourself or anyone else. This is good.

    Now, hypothetically, had the intruders forced their way inside and you confronted them in your dwelling, the outcome could have been very different. You could have been forced to defend yourself, possibly being injured in the process, and possibly causing injury to the intruders. In such a case I would recommend that your only statement to responding officers be something like this: "I was in fear for my life and forced to defend myself. I need to speak to a lawyer before I say anything else". Shut up, lawyer up, let the nice pit bull in the good suit do all the talking for you.

    Make sure all the doors and windows are secured, have a nice cup of cocoa, go to bed, keep your GP100 handy. One in 17 Americans will be the victim of a serious crime every year (Uniform Crime Reports, US Department of Justice); accept the fact that tonight was your turn. Tomorrow will be another day.

    Best regards from a retired cop.

    Ummm...I think you are well protected with a Marlin 30-30, a .45 ACP and a .357 Magnum! FYI, you can get a used Remington 700 or Mossberg 500 very cheap...just so you give it some thought for when you are doing better financially.

    It sucks that you just moved there and you had a major security incident. It happened to me in my previous apartment...2 weeks after I moved in I woke up at 3:00 AM with someone banging on my door and telling me to open the Friggin Door. I picked up my Mossberg 590A1 and racked it...afterwards I heard the suspect run like crazy when he heard that but my heart was pounding at 1,000 bpm, I was a bit shaky and did not sleep at all.

    So you let the dog out and the dog didn't go absolutely crazy on their ahem, butts??
    I would NOT open the door to let the dog out - why make it easy for them by opening the door??

    You did ok though, came through it alright and that's what matters!
    I also need a shotgun, like you, my only real long gun is my 30-30 Winchester.

    Broken, I am not advocating this as an out to the issue, it is merely to calm your nerves, I suggest a good strong drink to help you stop shaking, and then a nice cup of cocoa to make yourself comfortable and sleepy, and then lay down and just try as best you can to relax, thats what I did when I had my close call with thinking someone was coming into my house, lucky noone was, and it was a false alarm, but once it was over, i had some cocoa and just sat in my chair till I got tired, then went to lay down
