Had a buddy ask me this question the other day. I told him what I would do, and it was exactly what he did.

Late at night, you happen to be up (Surfing National Gun Forum, of course.) and you see a fellow entering the house across the street. You don't recognize him.

You are unsure as to whether or not your neighbor is home.

What are your immediate and followup actions?

Call the police, grab my 1911 and flashlight and try to stall them till the plice arive. Deadly force if need be.

I would definately call the popo. Not to sure about whats next, though. maybe call the neighbor and wake them, to tell them someone in the house. Maybe create a deversion at my house by setting off the panic alarm on the keychain. I wouldnt be anywhere around with a gun if Ive already called the police, there gonna spend too much time checking me out while theres a BG on the loose. Come to think of it, I'm just gonna stay on the phone with the police and be an extra set of eyes for them, but not outside, there looking for a prowler. I sure would hate to shoot the neighbors brother in law who has permission to borrow his chainsaw while said neighbor is on vacation.

I think I would simply call the police and stay out of the situation. That is unless I was related to or real good friends with my neighbor, then I might be tempted to sick the pitbulls on the perp!

Call the local LEOs. Anyone who's been in CCW training would of been taught NEVER to engage into a lethal confrontation with a suspect. Only use lethal force when you or your family's life is being threatened.

Setting off the car alarm would be a great idea. This would REALLY get that BG in a tough spot. Most likely he would stop.... :D and if he didn't I hope the cops gets there before my neighbor starts a war with that sucker. :---

Call the police and watch the situation in case the BG stays in when the police arrive or the BG comes back out and leaves in a car then you can get a license/make/model. This information would be critical for the police to follow up. Not sure on the phone call, this might alert the BG and if it is not just a robbery he could get away to come back another day. This is a tough call for me personally.
