Your scenarios smells very badly of "entrapment." And I doubt "B" will get away with his crime.

As far as the doper in Montana is concerned: As a firearms owner myself I would never, ever shoot blindly into anywhere or anyone. Target acquisition and identification are the least things a responsible firearms owner should do. And preferably aligned with a possible discovery of what the other person's intent is.

I don't think the Montana homeowner is going to get away with his crime. Even reading Montana's self-defense laws one should note that a perceived threat to life and or property is needed for this. I do not see how Mr. doper could have perceived any sort of threat without first identifying the target of that threat. Additionally, it can be argued that by placing whatever it was he placed in the garage as a lure, that it constitutes entrapment.
