    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    And they tell us there's no practical purpose for having a SMG.

    Sounds to me like somebody owed somebody for a drug shipment
    Or, having just newly arrived to the home, they had yet to install proper security and put their guard up.

    That's one heck of a Texas welcome! I think the trend will be toward larger groups performing these deeds. The "safety in numbers" concept.

    Make them come through a funnel to get to you. Hallway, door or stairs, as they stack and come through shooting them one at a time. I'm betting they don't all come to get you.

    Not enough info to accurately figure what the story is.

    Could be the tenents before had drug related dealings, and the crashers thought they were still there.

    Or the new homeowners just got unlucky.

    It is the Wild, Wild West down there. Or out there as we say on the East Coast.

    I'm JK, but here's a true family anecdote. My father moved to NC with the military from Oklahoma. His family moved to OK from Texas because my great-great-grandfather (born in Lampasas) shot and killed a Texas Ranger during a card game. They were lucky back then to have all that Indian Territory for hiding out!

    Unless they're hardcore the rest would probably run like hell once you dropped the first one. Actually they'd probably stand around wondering WT* just happened but I'm sure it'd sink in after you dropped the 2nd one.

    All kidding aside though I would hate to be the one to put that theory to the test.

    Eight dirtbags presents a BIG problem, but they still have to come through a door one at a time.
    SA and being already armed might just make those behind the leader decide to decline the welcoming.

    It looks like the home is in a rural area and has some acreage. A good dog would help with the SA.
