Re: Tac-lights and house guns
Just so we are clear on this, I am enjoying the arguments on both sides. Please do not let pettiness lose this argument.
I agree with both of you and I for one know exactly what I would do put into a situation where a perp has entered my home. Fortunately, it is only me and the dog, so considering that he only stands 20" tall, anything over that is DEAD!
What I believe we have here is you Delta, a professional going INTO a situation from the outside and LTS, NAW, just cain't say it, a professional on the inside and knows Texas laws; i.e. "you enter my house, you die". God, I love this state!
Delta, I believe all you say is good and well tested theory, but based upon your training limits you seeing things as "entering a perps domain". This is all well and good and do not think it demeaning in any way. However, you are trained in a specific manner that involves your TEAM! A homeowner does not have that luxury, he is a team of ONE! The object is to win, perp or perps be dead. That can be the only outcome. What LTS is saying refers to the latter and would apply to my case. I have no assessment to make except to know that someone is in my house and he needs to be dead! When Texas Scootin Jack alerts during the night, that is what will happen.
What are your opinions on that? I am interested in your opinion and I hope that you are in mine! Thanks.
By the way, I have a prettier tutu!
