A simple " WHO IS THERE I HAVE A WEAPON AND AM CALLING THE POLICE!" Would do. If you live in an area where you stumbling in after a boys night out can be mistaken for a break in, then you need to move.
As far as shooting a family member, who hears a bump in the night, jumps up grabs a gun, and starts running through the house without checking on sleeping family first? Make sure everyone is secure first, THEN confront the threat. defense 101.
But you do what you want, its your gun, house and GF.
if you are concerned with recoil and LOP for her, look into the Knoxx stocks. Great recoil reduction and a limbsaver recoil pad. Then you could both shoot it comfortably.
I am teaching her both.
I didn't think it was necessary to give you a life lesson on where I am coming from and any of the background. It is for my gf, it is for home defense. That should be sufficient. I wasn't asking for techniques or tactics because I have that figured out.
Besides, in regards to your defense 101, I live with just her and I work night shifts (pretty sure I said that above) so there is no one else that needs "secure[d]".....so quit ASSuming.
