i just paid to have a whole new security system installed on our airport which my house is also on the strip the cameras and lights help to ward off potential thiefs but if they do decide to creep around they will be recorded a an audible alarm will sound now if they get past basic security then armed security will be the next opstical the armed will be me or my wife.

When confronted with deadly force is outside the home. Inside the home deadly intent is implied by the bg breaking in. You can use deadly force without determining if he is armed.

Okay, that's the way it should be. Break-ins can often occur at night & the home owner should not have to be concerned, in the dark, about how or if the scum bag is armed.

As been mentioned - You shud REALLY not pay ANY attention to ANY advice given here
Check LOCAL LAWS- Consult your lawyer- Theres NO way a exact answer can be given to your question- TOO many varibles, any little thing can change the way the local cops/lawyers ect will view the exact situation that caused YOU to use deadly force in a given situation at a given time

Exactly! Sadly, local officials may take a dim view of state laws & try to interpret them differently, even twist them. A local lawyer will know these things.

I have yet to hear about a case where someone was proscecuted for shooting an intruder who had broken into his occupied house and was still inside . That said, you must reasonably fear for life and limb, according to most laws ; so you could possibly be proscecuted if it were plain that you fired only to save property or to apprehend a burglar .
Massad Ayoob's book, In The Gravest Extreme and Alex Jason's video, Deadly Force are the best sources of information on this topic .
