    It would depend on if he was going to shoot the clerk

    Would you shoot a person who is stealing your truck out of your yard?
    No. You can't do that here. This is Arkansas and not Texas. Can't shoot someone unless I am in grave danger. If the thief tries to run me over with my truck...that would be a different story, and I'd be thinking how much a new windshield would cost me.

    I'd also like to know why my Hexxagon Champion tag doesn't scroll like Cake's.

    I would grab the digital camera or the Mini-DVD recorder and zoom in on faces. Both of these items are always sitting around the house & ready for use. I don't want people to steal my stuff, but I also don't want to go through a court battle for my freedom.

    No I would not! They can have that gas guzzler, and besides it's hubby's, not mine! Now if it were my Bimmer, that's another story............. Just kidding!!!

    I would not shoot over a car, my firearms are drawn only to protect life and limb.
    Of course I'm out of my mind! It's dark and scary in there.... Hidden Content

    I would be tempted to shoot him, but I know that the law would be against me since I would be the victim.

    In Virginia it's illegal to shoot someone over property, not that I would do it if it were legal.

    Besides, I got LoJack.

    We had a friend that lives over in Vancouver WA have this very thing happen recently. His wife woke up in the middle of the night and noticed that someone was trying to break into his Tahoe.

    He is a plumber and has lots of power tools in the back of the Tahoe. She woke up her husband and he sleeps in the nude, grabbed his robe and his beretta 9 mm and headed out the door. He was within six feet of the guy, yelled at him and shot the gun off in the air. The guy about crapped his pants, he fell down, got up and ran like a rabbit.

    My friend was barefoot so he decided to let the guy go and called the police. He did not admit to shooting off the gun and the neighbors did not report the gun shot so he was in the clear.

    They never caught the bad guy but we know he had a "come to Jesus event" that night!

    Our friend is not a mean guy and said the guy was very young and he could never shoot someone for stealing property.

    That gives you a real life situation where someone had to make the decision that was asked about in this thread.

    No probably not, unless I felt like I or someone else in the store was in immediate danger, but since I am in the back I would try to get my cell phone out and take a picture of the bad guy and then call 911

    What if you awoke in the middle of the night to a loud crash coming from an old shed in your back yard, once you get there seeing what it is, you find 6 college age males taking your belongings from the building and two of the males have baseball bats. What would you do ?
