Nope. Being a lawyer is a serious and involved business. And the vast majority of us take it serious and try very hard to fulfill our professional responsibilities in accordance with the rules.

And no government prosecutor will pursue a case just because he feels like it. He will only pursue cases he thinks are worthwhile and that he can win. Among other things, he's usually too busy to waste time on lousy or losing cases.

Solo house clearing, unless try to round up unaccounted for family members or some other compelling reason, is not necessarily "defending your house." It's more like putting yourself in tactically disadvantaged situation.

The topic has been discussed here quite a bit, and those who have had some serious training in house clearing and/or Force-on-Force training are disinclined to do it except when absolutely necessary, such as an unaccounted for family member.

In that regard, how much simulator or shoot house training have you had? Have you done much Force-on-Force training?

BTW, you might want to look at this thread to see how to quote other posts in your post.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
