I live deep in the woods, so usually break-ins/home invasions are ugly and brutal in my neck of the woods, because there's no witnesses and neighbors are so spaced out that no one hears anything. I have a shotgun loaded with 00 Buck next to my bed and a .40 cal in my nightstand's drawer which I leave slightly pulled out. The wife sleeps with her .38 Spl in her nightstand's drawer.
Too much fire power? I think not...it's survival.
