My last boy would bite if someone so much as irritated me. I slapped Scott in the arm one day and laughed when Swaze barked at him. So I repeated it several times, laughing harder each time. Until Scott looked at me and said "If that dog bites me the first one I'm going to hit is you" LOL
Doobie, the one when I was a teen, was raising all sorts of **** downstairs at 2am one night when my father was gone and it was just me and my brother. So I throw on a light and storm down the stairs only to realize he's at the bottom and growling with teeth bared towards the back door. I don't know what was out there last night but it was NOT Roger Rabbit. He paced between our bedrooms the rest of the night once he finally came upstairs and never came into my room to sleep like he always did.
Some day I'll have another.

Its funny you should say that jax. All the collies we have had would not hesitate to take a chunk outta an intruder.
Lol when my parents bought a bc from a farm they brought home a dog that would not hesitate to throw down for the family. It wasn't fearful it was full on "get off my property"

Dead men tell now tales. If you are going to shoot, shoot to kill. A retired LEO told me that. If you shoot to maim, then you take the chance of the person retaliating.
Now, having said that...I have no idea how to shoot a gun and can only hope my dogs are enough of a deterrent. My collie, when I was 16, was enough one night. You don't expect a collie to be protective enough to attack but I've had two like that. Wonderful dogs.

|CharlieB.Barkin||I think the idea behind the no warning shot law has to do with the fact that when you're shooting at something (in the air for example) without the intent of hitting a specific target, you're using your gun negligently. You're supposed to make your intent known (vocal warning) without shooting your gun "recklessly" and possibly putting others in danger.|

You shoot to stop the threat. Not to 'kill', not to 'wing him', or other such nonsense. In all but a handful of states a warning shot is illegal.
If you draw a firearm you had better be mentally prepared to use it against an assailant.
