    What would you do?

    Perp is in my house!!! Grab my gun!!! now were face to face. Bang! missed! Clic, Click. Damn it jamed!
    He is coming at me! your weapon let you down, and the dog and the old lady are still asleep. what is your next Action?
    Anyone ever think of this? Just a senerio,( Beats someone insulting my old lady) Lets see how far this one goes!
    Now you are faced with hand to hand combat in your underware. I will give you My solution towards the end.
    Attica Jail guards, this should be easy for you. and, no, I wouldn't treat him with kindness.

    mudpuppy has it right. If a bad guy walks over me, my wife is not left defenseless. Every adult should be armed.
    People don't like to be meddled with. We tell them what to do, what to think, don't run, don't walk. We're in their homes and in their heads and we haven't the right. We're meddlesome.--River Tam

    One - IF I heard something and decided to go "check it out" - my wife would be a wake..
    IF the 1st bullet went off - I would HOPE that I didn't miss, but if so - the Wife and I have a "Code word" that does not alert the BG, but does alert the wife..
    My biggest job at this point is to get the hell out of the way!!!

    OK.. with that said, several of you are curious about my 1st sentence.. "What do you mean IF I decide to go "check it out"???
    In discussions with my wife, If I know someone is in my house, our plan is
    1) wake the partner up
    2) the wife gets on the phone (left hand) to 911, while holding her gun in her right hand
    3) I cover the locked bedroom door with my gun, and have a flashlight ready to go in the left hand, crossed under my right arm...

    At this point one of three things happen
    1) the BG chooses to wonder out of my house with something that is not worth dying over...
    2) the Police show up and they take the chance at getting shot
    3) the BG is dumb enough to try to get through a locked Bedroom door...

    There is nothing in my house (outside the bedroom) that is worth me or my wife dying over..
    You can call me chicken, you can call me not a man, but I choose to go with the saying
    "Discretion is the better part of valor"
    - Living through a bad situation is the most important thing, not killing the BG.. I have no issue with shooting a BG in my house, but I will do it in the safest way possible and only when the threat is immanent.. As I said before, there is nothing in my house outside the bedroom that is worth me dying over..

    Perfect answer. Women with 1911's are not only sexy, but useful :)

    WRONG!!!! Don't suppose you've ever encountered a high primer, squib load with Factory ammo, a bullet that backs out under recoil and locks the cylinder, or a perp grabs your cylnder at close range? Not to mention timing problems, a backed out ejector rod or various forms of cylinder lock up. I love revolvers too, used them extensively in my early L/E years and as a firearms instructor and competition shooter. Revolvers do jam and fail. Quality semi-autos with proper ammo are basically as reliable as a good revolver in most cases. Try being a firearms instructor / range master with a large group of police recruits carrying revolvers on a day at the range. Bring your armorers kit.
