I figure the sound of racking it closed out to take a lot of fight out of an intruder
If he is a combat vet or a druggie high on something that sound could trigger an adverse reaction and you won't hear a gun being racked, just a gun going off and a muzzle blast pointed in your direction. Forget fancy loads and gun handling, pick one and figure the only sound a burglar should hear is your safety going off just before you shoot him. The first thing he should see is a bright light in his face so you can make sure it isn't Junior sneaking home or the next door neighbor drunk and in the wrong house.

I have had both things happen.

Light him up
Take action
Wait for cops
Keep mouth shut till you talk to lawyer
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
--Daniel Webster--
