    If someone range the bell at 9pm at my house - they should be more worried about the wifey (two babies asleep upstairs) than my 9mm and snarling doberman.

    Never let them in - I also think these guys case houses for their buddies.

    UNLESS its the Girl Scouts - when Time Warner starts selling Somoa's, then I might talk to them too..

    For late night visitors...I'm changing my doorbell from a 'ding-dong' to gunfire with outside speakers...

    I don't even answer the door unless it is a Girl Scout, LEO, or someone I am expecting (pizza delivery, utility tech). I watch them from inside until they leave.

    This thread makes me really miss my German Shep. I taught him to bark and hold... I'd send him out the side door, he would run around and hold the annoying solicitor on the porch until I released him. God loves good dogs.

    Anyway, I really dont answer the door when they come around selling garbage.

    I haven't bought it yet, too busy with other projects right now, but I intend to put in a video intercom system at both doors. The visitor can only hear and speak to me (if I allow it). Of course I can hear him, speak with him and look at him from inside my home at the "base station". I think these things are a great idea, I especially want it for my wife's use so she doesn't have to answer the door.............problem solved.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    I used to have an old bird dog. It had a nasty habit of humping strangers legs. Looking back it was a pretty impressive deterrent.

    9 at night is a little late for surveys. I'd be in bed at the point - if the doorbell rang I think I'd have the shotgun in my hands if I even got up.

    Soliciting in general is a bad idea. If someone wants to come to my door during the day when I'm not home and talk to my wife, not okay. If they want to come after I get home from work, not a good time. At night, no.

    No conversation, if I open the door at all, the screen door stays shut and locked and I say no thank you quickly and then shut and lock the door again.

    If I talk to them it is always outside. Usually I ignore them.
    For those who understand, no explanation is necessary.

    They stay on the front step, I stay behind the screen door with my two dogs barking at them. I invite neighbors, friends and relatives in not strangers. I don't go out as I can hear them just fine inside my home.

    No one gets inside unless They are a real close friend. I always talk outside.
    Strangers go to the front door(its blocked), I exit back door and ask if I can help them. I am always armed and at home it is never concealed. After dark anyone coming to the door is met with a bright light in the eyes, regardles of who it may be.

    It's very difficult for me to talk to strangers at my front door - the dogs are just too loud. If I really want to waste my time talking to them, I have to come out and talk at the other end of the front porch.

    I don't think any stranger is going to do anything that might cause me to loose control of the door - being torn apart by angry dogs in not what they came for.

    First, I never come to the door without a gun in my hand. I've even done it before where I've draped a paper or magazine over my gun hand so it wouldn't be seen, or even kept my gun hand around the corner so it couldn't be seen what is in it. I talk with the door slightly ajar, my foot and hand behind it so I can close it quickly, and I'm usually fighting to keep two curious kittens from trying to learn first hand about the wild outdoors.

    I want to be able to slam the door shut if I need to.
