    If somone was in your home and you had the right to STK, would you? Or would you attempt to disarm/coerce the intruder to surrender at gunpoint? I only ask this because I would think it would be extemely hard to live with killing another human being, when you know it could have ended another way. Discuss.

    If you could have ended it another way then you should. Only use the amount of force NESSESARY. if it is NESSESARY to kill, then there is no other way out. Fire away.

    Shoot to kill or shoot to incapacitate? I mean both are entirely possible, but I can def see where you are coming from.

    I'd use whatever force was necessary. If the intruder had a gun and I felt my fiance and son were in danger I would definitely shoot. Whether I incapacitate or kill depends on how fast he can move.:o

    What weapons do you guys currently employ for this prupose. Ie home defense only, not range/case queens.

    I agree, although I would cuff him instead, rather than " duct taping his ass together."

    I have a Remington 1100 12ga. right inside my closet. When I get my XD I will probably leave it in the night stand when I'm in bed.

    Um...

    It's just me, but some of you seem unprepared in your own personal mindset to actually use the tools to defend yourself that you own for THAT VERY PURPOSE.

    If you are legally justified in using deadly force, then it means that you fear death or serious bodily injury to yourself or another. If you DON'T use deadly force in that instance, then why have firearms in the first place? If you DON'T fear for your life, it'd be a good idea to NOT use deadly force, because then, in most states and most cases, it's not legally justified. Basically, you're all arguing a moot point, because if you use it when necessary, it is by definition justified.

    If you think someone in your home is dangerous enough for you to bother pointing your firearm at him, then you would be a fool to continue simply POINTING it without actually EMPLOYING it. I sense a HUGE vacuum of mental preparation for something so serious. You're all only going halfway, because you own firearms, but don't actually prepare yourselves mentally to use them. You find ways in your mind to keep from using them, and excuses why you shouldn't use them.

    The simple fact is that in this scenario, someone is in your home. Based on the information given in setting up the scenario, you are faced with the decision to DISARM an armed person IN YOUR HOME. If you have to think about whether or not that is a threat, you are not in the right place in your mind. If you think that you would not be able to live with killing another human being in order to protect yourself or others, do not own firearms.

    That is in part, why I posed this question to this forum. It seems that alot of people arent prepared to go through with it.

    Yourself included.

    I myself have zero qualms about defending my life or that of someone else to whatever end necessary. I will fucking CHEW through someone's external jugular if that's what it takes to be the one that survives.

    I don't assume shit. I think this is pretty self-evident. You have second thoughts before you're ever faced with the situation. You will second guess yourself all the way to the floor.

    I second guess now because I have a skewed view of death. My friend just died. But if I was in a situation where I knew it was me or him. It would be his blood on the floor, not mine.

    Shit, death is just part of life. I saw a dude's brains the other day at work. You could reach in there and poke his third grade education. You haven't even BEGUN to imagine a skewed view of death until you see it a few more times. In person.

    I have no hesitation defending myself because I have the drive to live, and I get pissed off at the thought that someone else might want to end me. It's kind of like school spirit, only more enthusiastic, and for my own personal team.

    I would have a hard time dealing with killing someone IF I didn't believe that they intended me serious bodily harm. Run over someone in the middle of the night? Yeah, I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life. But putting down a threat to my life is nothing to stress about at all after it's done.

    I would never shoot to "incapacitate".. you're just setting yourself up for a lawsuit.

    If you use your gun.. shoot to kill, or dont use it.

    you have a good point. besides.. the guy IS in your house unwelcomed.. however, you dont know if hes a threat.. and I dont live in Texas, I can't just shoot anyone... I need to look into home defense laws..

    If given the chance I would honestly take his life instead of risking my family's life. You never hear good things about people breaking into a house and doing good things
