Don't count on any sound having an effect on an intruder. Be prepared to defend yourself and your family. In other words, do not delay waiting for a reaction to the sound of racking the slide, you give up the element of surprise

Look at an autoloader for reduced recoil. Check out the Mossberg 930 SPX or Benelli M4 (expensive and requires some mods)
