Maverick's are some damn good shotguns. I personally think they're worth more than their price.

If you can see lights, could you see a laser dot for targeting? Would a firearm with an attached light help you? Given that your odds of shooting a person who doesn't need to be shot are a probably bit higher than a normally sighted person, have you considered some of the "less lethal" ammunition available for a 12 guage shotgun (rubber buckshot, rubber slugs, beanbags infused with pepper spray and/or marking agents).

If your floor creaks in different spots, maybe you could make a mental note of where the croaks are.
I like my Mossberg model 500, and it is available with a shorter barrel for indoor use.

Good luck to you!

The Savage 311A 12 ga with 18 inch barrels is a really nice SD weapon for low cost.
