    Sadly, if you need to shoot, you simply have to kill. Otherwise, he can sue or make up some story that'll really complicates things.

    if dead, he has no story to tell, just yours. Oh, and make sure you tell the police you were afraid for your life.

    But I would only shoot if I had to, so it's kind of hard to tell if I'd end up killing them or not.

    By hurting him you still give him a chance to get away or hurt someone or do some damage of some sort.
    If somebody breaks into my house, i am not giving that asswipe any chance at all to hurt my family.
    I may feel a little remorse afterwards, maybe not, but remorse for killing a guy that could have been trying to kill me or my family would be nothing compared to the anguish i would feel if something happened to my baby siblings or my parents.

    Having been broken into by an ex with a PPO on him, I'm now armed with my trusty little .20 guage and would blow a hole in them without blinking. Do the gene pool a favor.

    I had to vote for "Maim" even though I wanted to vote for "Kill" because I have never fired a real gun so I'd probably be lucky to even hit the creep let alone kill him!

    It depends on if it was a choice between thier live or mine..... If that be the case, of couse I would shoot to kill them because I would be protecting myself......

    I would shoot the way my police officer father taught me. I would shoot to STOP and that would mean center body mass. If my aim was good (and it is a shooting range -- artificial environment) . . . they would die.

    If you don't live in my home and aren't invited, probably better to stay out!

    I couldn't write another opinion as i have one from a couple days ago.
    I already wrote kill.
    Here's an interesting article;
    The state of NH is pro concealed carry but not every town has pro gun police... check this out.

    see above where I responded to Veritas..
    I attached a link to an article that explained or showed that even though NH is pro gun and pro carry, not all town police officers agree. in that article, they arrested the homeowner for discharging his pistol to get a thief's attention. (shot into the ground) and they arrested him and are contemplating charging him with a felony... doesn't make sense... that was pretty dumb on the part of the Farmington police. Hence the comment "and in your town, meaning good to learn how your town thinks about guns."

    I have a large caliber gun,If I could see their hands and they were not armed,I would tell them to lay face down on the floor,and call 911,and wait for the police to deal with it.If they are armed,or I can't tell if they are, I would shoot until they are down,and unable to continue the threat.

    If I had the choice, I'd shoot the legs. That way, he lives, spends time in a penitentiary, can maybe reform his life, or at least become a better thief, and everybody wins. Why do we need to kill him? Why is everyone so homicidal?
