Jkm asked a good question yesterday, how do you protect your stuff. I replied about my Mossberg shotgun and Sig 226's, and how an intruder into my home while I was out almost caught a blast from said Mossberg when I beat the cops to my house. I figured I would elaborate a bit since A: I don't want you all to think I am some gun nut - and B: those of you who made very valid points about being in a greater danger while being armed vs. an armed intruder in an encounter should be heard too.
