Texas Self-Defense: Truck Thief Shot Dead By Owner :: 02/11/2015

I am not sure to call this a DGU, a bad idea or hail the owner as a hero.  But what I will say is that chasing someone down and shooting them, while they are in the act of stealing your truck could be a stretch.  I come from a state where deadly force is authorized by law when someone commits a felony in the presence of the slayer.

Personal Defense Tip: Don't Shoot Through An Exterior Door :: 02/06/2015

Shooting through a door is usually a bad idea. Your ability to see your target is at best obscured or totally nonexistent. And it may be difficult to show that you believed that you were confronting an imminent, deadly threat. Shooting through an inside door may be less problematic than one that’s an entrance to a building. A person who has retreated to a bedroom or bathroom and who has locked the door may have fewer options than someone who is defending an entrance door, but still isn’t recommended . . .
