Grab gun, point, aim, shoot until threat eliminated.

No children or wife to have to give a sh!t about. Yup perfect life, I know.

Would only report if in earshot of others. Sadly I usually am.

Wake up to dogs barking madly. Yell at dogs to shut up. Fumble for glasses on nightstand. Yell more at dogs to shut up. Get up, stumble over dogs. Yell at them to shut up. Exit bedroom, bumping into doorframe. Wife is now yelling at dogs. Look through house. Cats are looking innocent. Check to see if teenage daughter is in room. She yells at me. Look out front door - see nothing. Look out back door - see nothing. Tell dogs they are crazy, and SHUT UP. Go back to bedroom. Tell small dog to get out of my spot. Dog growls at me. Move dog, get back in bed. Wife says "did you have to make so much noise."

Very glad it was just a random incident. Weird things happen in homes at night. Ive only cleared my home once in the 3 years Ive been here for a weird noise downstairs but turns out it was my crazy ass cat knocking over a picture frame which hit the floor
First thing that went through my head was "i think that was inside our house". Then instinct kinda kicked in and I grabbed the gun and ran into the hall. I wasn't sure what to do though when I had to decide to head towards the kid room or the noise, and that is where I Hung up. (I now have a plan though) Once my wife was coherent she watched the kids room and I went towards the noise. I surprisingly stayed pretty objective though. Only fumbled getting the gun for a sec

The best way to handle these things is to make up your mind in advance that you will not open the door for anyone or even to see who is out there . Do not go outside to protect property .

Call 911 immediately if you suspect anything threatening and stay on the line . Hunker down in a covered spot, ideally with a good field of fire, and wait for the intruder to break in and come to you . You can shout a warning before he breaks the door in if you wish .

Once the intruder is inside the house, operate on the assumption that he is armed an intends to kill you .
If need be, use a tactical flashlight to positively identify him as the intruder . Do not assume he is alone . Remember that any delay may allow him to take cover and fire on you .
If you have no gun, shout " Billy, get the gun -I'm calling the police ".

I follow what you are saying, and for the most part agree, but I do have a couple comments.

1. It may not be a good idea to start shouting out stuff after the intruder has made entry. It can give away your position. So can a flashlight.

2. The only cover I have in my house is my car out in the garage and my gun safe, and both of those are questionable for being true cover. I have a pile of concealment places, but those two are all the cover I have.

Because of number two, I don't think number one is a good idea unless you shout before the bad guys get inside.

You are absolutely correct about staying inside. There is nothing in your yard worth dying over, and leaving your house completely exposes you. Stay cool and stay concealed. Use your brain instead of your emotions.

If I was asleep my night vision would be active when I awoke. Therefore I would not use a flashlight or turn on a light. I can see pretty well in my home in the dark. And it is my home after all. I know it much better than a stranger.

There are very few things in a home that can be used for cover. But a full book case would be one. A full freezer of meat would be another. Not really the freezer, but the meat inside.

I have checked my home a couple times. I simply grabbed my gun from the drawer and slowly went from room to room. Stayed low and sliced the pie. We all hear weird noises from time to time.

Rick1967 :
Checking out a noise is not what I was talking about . The scenerio in question is " Intruder beating on the door " .

You were quite right to clear the house yourself over a noise instead of calling in a SWAT team .

I've never taken the gun to look outside, but I will be the first to admit to being a nosy neighbor and peeking out the blinds if I think I hear something around my place or the neighbors I just think it is important to know how your going to move around and negotiate your own home. I totally forgot about slicing the pie when I cleared mine. It was more of a reckless charge lol.
