    Remember, the police are in the area and they know something is going on.

    They may be in the house chasing bad guy, bad guy might be there, you have no idea.

    Its chaos and there is not much that can go right, but if I know there might be a SWAT team right outside in my front lawn and I cannot get through to 911 and I think there is a bad guy or multiple in my house, making a hell of a lot of noise makes a lot of sense to me. You are literally calling in the cavalry.

    Heck fire a starter pistol, light up an actual homing beacon. Unless they are actual zombies, they are going to hear the sirens coming real quick and know that you have more numbers than they do, and they are probably going to care.

    #3 mistake wasn't charging into the room, but that I was empty handed in the first place.
    It was 3 am and you were already pumped full of adrenaline from the call. You heard a gunshot in a loved one's room. Now you are reptilian, hopped up on all sorts of chemicals most people pay a lot of money for.

    You weren't going to bust in the room in low light with a family member there somewhere possibly in mortal danger and take a safe shot to the CNS anyway. Honestly a gun in hand might have been a detriment- at that moment. If bad guy was there they likely were going to keep your family between you and them. Your thinking shoot, you see them holding family as barrier, you pause, you start to think and in the process fight the adrenaline, and now you are stuck. Deer in headlights.

    No gun, no choice, no thought. You turn off your mind. All that stuff about how fast a man can close distance and why you should carry one in the chamber works in reverse as well- if there had been someone in there your war cry alerts them and they stop raping or killing your family and set up for you.

    They will probably shoot you, at least once, as you enter the funnel.

    Then they will learn why the caliber wars can never end and what Massad Ayoob means when he discusses how much surviving gunshots has to do with the physical state and strength of will of the person being shot.

    Then they will discover its tough to breath when you've ripped their throat out.

    Sure on paper I'd rather have something more edgy or pointy or shootie in most scenarios but I am neither a ninja nor Jason Bourne and in the scenario you set up all that crap will just get in the way of your inner primate. The Hulk even threw off his shirt when he had to go Smash.
