    A Friends Violent Boyfriend

    You're sub leasing an apartment from a friend of yours. Her boyfriend is known to be a violent person and has threatened to physically harm you and your significant other multiple times. You ignore the threats and he shows up at your door in the middle of the night with a few other guys with him. He has a key for the apartment that he got from his girlfriend (since the apt is in her name, she would have a key) so he was able to let himself and his friends in. You wake up to physical threats from three men in your home.

    You have you pistol within arms reach from your bed, but out of sight. Its fully loaded.

    What do you do?

    I'd give them one warning and if they showed no intent to leave I'd start putting rounds down range.

    If you're worried about friends, make sure that you have a couple of loaded magazines near.

    This is the correct answer.
    I'll take a .45 and a large side of JHPs, please.

    First of all, when I lived in apts, I changed the locks, and installed dead bolts after I was told not to. I figure that I live there and no one should be there unless I am there. I came home to the apt one day and could tell that someone had been inside. I spoke to the manager and was told that the maintenance man comes in to change out the air filters. I asked to have the filter left at the door, and was denied. The next day I installed a dead bolt and new lockset. I informed the manager that when I moved I would install the old lockset and give her the keys to the dead bolt.

    To answer your question, if I woke up and there were BGs in my house there would be gunfire.

    Change your locks, it is your place of residence. OR MOVE! Friend or not.

    I totally agree with ExSoldier.
    If you are renting then that is your home.
    Nobody should be able to gain entry into your home without your consent and permission. Have your locks rekeyed...do something pro-active right now.
    Absolutely...you should be adding a dead-bolt to the door or you should physically bar your doors so that no unauthorized person/persons can enter your living quarters uninvited.
    For all you know 6 previous tenants could also have your apartment door key.
    An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of Lead.
    While it likely that it would be a good shoot if strangers entered your domicile at night and threatened you...why would you let the situation get to that point? You can easily rectify things right now so that you'll not need to face that future scenario.

    There doesn't seem to be much of a question, here.

    I think that unequivocally I would draw and fire. And fire. And fire. And fire. What else can you do?! Wait while a known-violent guy who has made threats against you and is now inside your home uninvited explains how he's just there to ask you what you want for Christmas?!

    I would sure hope that a trail of police reports has been made that document this guy's history of threat-making.

    But if he's at the foot of my bed in the middle of the night uninvited and I can access my gun, it is perfectly fair of me to assume he is there to kill me and he is going to be shot.

    Never thought of that - thanks for the idea. I might be making daily phone calls to the local police department then.

    Peacefuljeffery has an excellent point with the police reports. Documentation can only serve to support your position if a situation escalates to a shooting.

    Unless they are all carrying feather-dusters, and vacuum cleaners (mad service) leads a flying. Agree with rest of posts about locks, if you can't change locks, at the very least how about a chair against the door.
