I would have tossed the hot bacon grease at him, then hit him with the pan.

For me, if it were a choice between the bacon and my life, I would have thrown the bacon at him. Plus then you'd have something identifiable about him when he went to the emergency room to get treated for grease burns. There'd be no way in he** that he could deny that he'd been in your place when asked how he got the burns.

Mine is my Smith & Wesson .357 on the pantry shelf and I won't hesitate to use it.
