Re: What would you do?

If the guy has my new 60" tv in his arms I will consider that a personal threat to my wellbeing and my weekend.

THAT will not stand.

You can have my golf clubs. You can have my car. You can even take my wife.

DO NOT mess with the TV.

Given that there isn't a lot of space in my home, at most 20 feet and that things can go south real fast, regardless of scenario 1 or 2, I am telling him to drop the TV and drop to the floor. If that doesn't happen real fast, I am shooting and then calling 911. If he is in my home, this isn't about a TV or property anymore. This is about my life or the life of my wife. I am not taking chances with those.
And if he's in your home by force that's all you need.

Re: What would you do?

The important thing to remember is your authority to use deadly force.

Many times the gun pointed at the perpetrator is a bluff because if he just decides to get up and walk away without threatening you then there isn't much you can do with the gun. You just stand there looking stupid.

And since the threshold for deadly force to protect personal property, especially during the day, is high, the gun would generally be a empty threat. So much so that if the perpetrator knew his stuff he would not be intimidated by the threat...unless he thought you were a psycho crazed out-of-you-mind, lunatic, trigger-happy, death-loving maniac.

Then you might have his undivided attention.

Let's say he has a bag of your golf clubs in his hands.

What would you do?

As you pull into your driveway during the day you notice a person coming out of your garage. You stop and get out and pull gun and tell him to freeze which he does. You call the police and they are on their way.

The intruder then decides to casually start to walk away disputed the fact that you are pointing the gun at him and telling him don't move.

What do you do?
