    You know your area much better than I do... that said, I think you may have over reacted a little and I certainly would not have exited the house.

    On the flip side, you did one heck of a lot better than the majority of people do!

    +1 to most of the responses above. You are the best judge of what is typical in your neighborhood and if you were concerned, there must have been reason for it...

    false alarm and no one was shot, chalk it up to a good test of your readiness for when it does happen.

    Stay inside, don't leave, and there is no law requiring one to answer a knocked door.
    If things really get suspicious/odd then dial 911 and retreat to a safe room...as opposed to poking around in the night to get clobbered in the head by a hammer wielding fiend leaving your home and GF defenseless and ripe for plundering. :(

    I have to agree with Janq. In Colorado, if you shoot someone in a home situtation, they better be inside your house. You going out with a AR finding them could have landed you some trouble you didn't want or need. Did you have the M&P on ya?
