I think a lot of people prepare to defend themselves, but I don't think there is enough talk about what to do after you are forced to defend yourself. I am not an expert at this. I will give a lead in and hopefully an expert will chime in. I am intentionally leaving the situation vague. You are at home a sleep. Someone breaks in. There is a scuffle. The person doing the B&E is shot. Now what? BTW, This came up on a different board because of some questionable shoots and the more questionable actions of the shooter AFTER the fact.
