Home defense in a can?

I've been concerned about my home defense of which I have been reading about some solutions in G&A magazine. My nighttime solution has been my circa1943 Colt 1911 in .45 ACP until the folks at Hornady came up with its Critical Defense round. I can just imagine the mess a couple of these slugs would make inside my adobe hacienda. I have yet another possibility and that is a bedside can of Raid's hornet and wasp spray. That can spits out a solid spray at over 20 feet! Hit a bad guy in the face and its all over. And no bloody mess to clean up! Oh yes, the .45 will still be at the ready but just that--at the ready.

Mr. Shaeffer, I'm not sure what hornet and wasp spray will do. If it works like pepper spray or OC spray, you might want to keep that firearm handy.--K. Lamb
