Smith said police believe the two picked the front door lock with a credit card and that they found a chair in the woods outside used for staking out the home.
“It’s not a fun experience,” Smith told WOOD. “You don‘t really know what’s really going on and it’s not, it’s not what you might think. It’s not like the movies, you know it‘s pretty serious when you’re holding a gun on somebody.”
He continued, “You don‘t know if they’re gonna pull a gun out or try to take your gun away from you or get you in a corner when you’re forced to shoot them. And I was trying to keep that from happening.”

He’d have done them a favor by blowing them away.
Yeah, I know that’s a terrible thing to say. Would they be so charitable to him? Or to his wife if they caught his wife at home alone?
Breaking into a home is very serious.
Note that it took “five minutes” for the police to get there. The gun was there when needed.
