I have the basic plan.


I hear him, the wife hits me really hard. I grab the gun while she calls 911 in the corner. I go look for intruder while she gives the cops the heads up of what I am wearing and I have a gun. I see the intruder, he dies. Cant find the intruder the cops look untill they are tired of looking. Then I would go back to bed with a pistol in my hand for the next couple nights.

Just three steps...like to keep it simple.

1) Get firearm.

2) Wife calls Cops.

3) Cops call Coronor.

There are six steps to my plan:
1. Intruder breaks in....
2. I grab my flashlight...
3. I warn intruder not to enter bedroom...
4. Intruder ignores warning...
5. I shine my flashlight on my wifes face....
6. Intruder dies of fright....

My plan saves bullets and works in all languages.

dont ever shoot what you cant identify. you will be draged threw a knot hole backwards by the da you shoot a minor.

other than that. ive got the gun and the surefire. if i get woken up. i grab the ar cause of the weapon light. and i have plenty of room clearing. you cant really plan for that scenario tho. you can know how to clear the room but the best laid plans of mice and men....

1) Wake up completely and be aware of the noises and surroundings.
2) Get my Mag-Lite and T-30 Japanese bayonet and head downstairs while my wife calls the cops
3) Clear all rooms on way to the children's room. We have a monitor in there for "just in case."
4) Force BG out of house and to the cops or deliver quick thrust upwards just under sternum.

5) In extreme situations and children are involved - HUNT THE MFer DOWN and see that he never bothers another child on God's green earth!

1.Wife stays in bed room and shoots anything coming in. Calls Police.
2. Daughter stays in room and shoots anything that moves or comes through windows. Calls Police.
3.I will try to take him out before he can reach any of them.

4. That's the plan but who knows things can always change and they do, most of the time.

If you know there's an intruder in your house, why on God's green earth would you go looking for him? The intruder has practically every advantage at this point:

1. He's doing a hot burglary, so he's probably armed, keyed-up and full of adrenaline. You, on the other hand, just woke up.
2. His night vision is fully developed. You, on the other hand, just woke up.
3. He will hear you moving around and will stop moving while you bumble through the house in your pajamas. He will ambush you if he doesn't flee.
4. Once he takes you out of the fight, he will now have your gun plus his own weapons - all the better to wreak havoc on your family, who you have now left undefended, or at least on their own.

Call the cops and let them search the house. Stay put in your safe room and protect your family rather than trying to do a SWAT/fire team's job by yourself. There's no TV or stereo worth your life, is there?

My dogs would wake me, and quite possibly eat the baddy.

They would for sure wake me and I would flip my bedroom wall switch which turns on the outside flood lights as well as 3 or 4 hardwired interior lights.
Mossberg 12 in hand, I would call the policemen to protect me.

1. Intruder breaks in.....
2. I grab the phone and call the cops.
3. I crawl under my bed and hide until the cops arrive to save me. :lol:

Isn't that how it works????

I'm with Mike, I don't want to give the intruder an advantage.

We have an empty nest; wife grabs her revolver and cell phone (in case the phone line is cut) and retreats to her closet, calling police. I grab my SureFire and Mossberg LE pump, get on off side of bed. if intruder comes in room before cops arrive, he gets appropriate dose of #4 buck, aiming at his torso. Chances are he'll drop with the first round, or if he can, turn and run like hell.

Ask yourself, are a few possessions worth a life? Could be your life if you go walking downstairs and intruder gets his shot off first.

Remember, most of us aren't cops. We are supposed to shoot in self defense only. If the perp is a 17 year old kid, you will have the DA looking up your butt with a microscope.

The thing is, none of my possesions are worth my life but I have worked too damn hard in my life to own the little luxuries that I have, And I am not willing to let some scumbag punk take them away from me. so If I can not have a TV neither can they ... EVER.

Wow! I guess I was raised differently then a lot of people. There is no way I would stay in my bedroom or cringe under my bed if I new that a scumbag intruder were in my house. After calling the cops, who have no obligation to respond, by the way, I will go after that intruder with my 870 that is loaded for that purpose. There are no kids in my house any longer, so that is not a problem. I could never sleep a full night again thinking that I cowered in a corner while letting someone ramsack my home and did nothing to prevent it. This is no bad reflection on those that choose to depend on the cops for protection, but their responce time in many, many cases is way too long...................JMHO. :shock: :shock:

In this state you cannot use deadly force to protect your property, only if your life or your family is in danger.

The range where I train explains that when a thug breaks into your home, he knows you are in there, and his intentions are not just to steal property. If all he wanted was property, he would wait until you were at work.

When they break in, they are not coming for your stereo, they are coming for your wife and daughters, and to terrorize you. Defense against a burglar is NOT about protecting property, it is about protecting life.

Home invasions are becoming trendy because criminals know most homes do not have camera systems, and once they get in and get control, they can take their time and rape, brutalize, and terrorize; all the things that appeal to the modern criminal.

Falling back to a defensible position is all fine and good, but remember, you are not defending "property", you are defending the lives or your family, and yourself. You might just have to take action, and resolve the conflict, or your daughter will be brutalized.
