    Christmas Eve Tactical Scenario -- How would you handle this?

    This could happen to you!

    Lets say it is late Christmas eve and you're awakened by commotion in your living room. Firearm in hand, you go in investigate.

    You find a largish white male -- bearded, red suit, jolly -- who'd obviously just broken into your home. He's standing by your tree carrying valuables. No weapon is visible at this point.

    Lets assume you live in a Castle Doctrine state. How would you handle this?

    Could we have some more choices here? Like light him up with my tac light on the bottom of the G17 and tell him to drop everything he's got and split before something bad happens. I said EVERYTHING! LOL!

    Is the commotion sleigh bells and hooves on the roof or the sound of broken glass/prying of a door? Are the milk and cookies gone?

    Since the jolly old man's 1911 is holstered, I'd relax knowing he's one of the good guys.

    We'd talk about sidearms, have a laugh or two, then he'd be on his way. Time to wake the family and open gifts!

    Waterboard the bearded guy to make sure he isn't a communist, or from the BATFE or other terrorist organization.

    "Hi. Your Santa, I assume. Well Santa, this is kind of embarrassing, but as I'm Jewish, I don't believe in you and don't take kindly to people dressed up as a jolly fat man in my house at 2:00 AM.

    Now I realize that this shotgun looks like a toy, but you are just going to take my word for it that it isn't, so get on the floor, put your hands up and don't move while I call the police, or children everywhere are going to be very disappointed that you died because an irritated, sleepy, half drunk, horny homeowner with a shotgun who isn't wearing his glasses didn't know who you were.

    I mean...it that happened, our faces would be red...well, mine anyway..."

    It would go kinda like that, but with more screaming and profanity...
