2. I wanted to see if Pat could share some inside on how to better prepare for a midnight intruder. You’ve been asleep for four hours next thing you’re alarm goes off and someone is in your house. I myself wear contacts and take them out every night. This is my biggest concern with shooting at night.

No one ever really covers this topic and would like to hear your input.
