Unless it has changed in the last couple years (and I don't think it has) Texas law does expect you to make a reasonable attempt to escape if possible before you shoot someone breaking into your home. Except in extreme circumstances, I can't see a Texas D.A. bringing charges for shooting an intruder. And even if he/she did, probably even harder to find a jury who would convict.

That said...anyone try to break into my home is gonna be met by a gun. And, the way I was taught

1. Never point a gun at anyone unless you are going to shoot them.

2. Never shoot to wound...always shoot to kill.

++++++++++++++++

Then, call lawyer, call cops.
