Your partner in life should be trained to work with you in home defense. Identify who does what and practice. Having two different people call 911 for the same incident from the same residence can confuse. Where are the kids (and/or pets)? Are you or your spouse practiced on all firearms and devices used in Home Defense? We know you can handle the shotgun, but what about the wife should the need arise? This is by no means complete. Just a couple of thoughts thrown out. Any Additions?
