Once again, it's fun to take some well planned FOF training and see what happens when you clear and/or have someone at 'gunpoint'.

what if he goes but doesn't stay gone
If he comes back, same rules apply. I mean, once he leaves, you're not going to put your gun away and go back to sleep

I suppose the most important issue for me would be: does detaining him reduce the immediate risk to me or my family? I don't believe it ever does, so I would never try it (even though the guy doesn't deserve to escape)

Edit: didn't see those other posts since my last, they all pretty much nailed it.
