      announce myself if I wasn't sure and tell him not to move. If he does not comply, shoot him.

        Damn right kolbster. If he comes into my house he IS a threat to my family, I don't care if he is armed or not. I have a friend that's an officer of the law, and he told me that you have every right to protect your family and your home( just make sure he's in the house where the cops get there, even if you have to drag him back in).

            let him know that if he moved I would shoot him. If he moves, I shoot him, if he doesn't, I hold him there until the police come.

              If your state has passed castle doctrine legislation, a burglar can be considered a threat by virtue of having entered. CHECK YOUR LOCAL LAWS FOR SPECIFICS--end disclaimer. My state (Ohio) only recently passed that law, until then you were legally under the duty to retreat. Shooting a guy and dragging him back in is gonna be tampering with evidence at the bare minimum, and to the right prosecutor or jury, evidence of premeditation...baaaaad juju. Anyhow, for me, if you break into my house while I'm there, you're gonna get carried out.

                  I would state to not move and that I had a gun. If he advanced then I would shoot. But if he goes to run out the door then I am not going to shoot a guy in the back.

                    BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!
                    Now I can answer your question, because I am still alive. I would shoot first and ask question later. My family and my life is more valuable to me than a robber's. Sorry that might sound cold, but I'm here to protect the ones I love at all costs.

                      rrmont, that is quite possibly the dumbest and most irresponsible thing I have ever heard. Drag the body back in? You moron there's something called forensic scientists and they're not dumb.

                        It is at night. As soon as I am positive he is not a drunken relative, I kill said intruder. I am not a trigger happy sort, but if someone forces his way into my house, he's done himself wrong.

                            As long as I know there is no posibility of it being a friend or relative I would shoot him.
