I'm sure you had aong discussion with your wife and the others that have access to the weapons about there potential and how readily they will pass through walls including the long aftermath emotionally and financially after a justifiable shooting.

Don't get me wrong. If someone comes into my house in a manor like you described there going to be taken down but I also know that there is a potential for criminal scrutiny and a even higher, if not guaranteed, civil, wrongful death lawsuit. All of which could go either way but will be a toll. These are all things that need to be taken into consideration.

As for telling the dispatcher something different that what actually is taking place is false reporting, negligent and is a crime.

Additionally the action of a shotgun is the second most reconized sound to Americans. The first is a door bell. I recommend racking it a couple times.
