    Armed while confronted by Girl Scouts.
    How did they "confront" you? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Or, did they simply corner you until you placed a $Jackson for the box of mint cavity busters?

    A few years ago, when I was a police officer, I had another officer come to my door. He knocked and covered the peephole with his hand, think he was being funny. Not being able to see out the peephole I drew my .357 and opened the door while standing off to the side of the door. He then jumped into the doorway, hands up like claws and yelling. It made me jump back but also made me bring my sight to center mass. This officer saw that and fell back out of the door way. I was indexing on the frame and that probable kept me from capping one off. I learned many survival lessons that day, but two really stood out to me. One, was to never open to a knock at the door unless in condition Orange. Two, go armed always whether at home, in the yard or on the street.

    I am happy to say that since that time the only dangerous encounter at my door has been the same as many of yours, the Girl Scouts with their lethal cookies. I sadly say that they are always a hazard to my waist line and condition Orange has yet to save me from them.

    I was surprised by what a No Solicitation sign did. I haven't had any visits from door-to-door vendors or Jehovah's Witnesses (I do respect them, I just find that tactic annoying) in 2 years. And all the sign is is a large sticker with permanent marker and box tape to hold it up.

    Perhaps a no solicitation sign on a used paper target would work well.

    I must admit that I don't exercise real good preparedness when I open my door, but I know they are coming from the driveway alarm and the dogs barking.

    Last visit I had were 2 timid young men that I thought were Jehovah's witnesses before I opened the door. When the dogs rushed past me and outside, the two young men almost soiled their pants. "Do they bite?".. "only if I tell them to"

    It turned out they were vacuum cleaner salesman. I suggested that it was too late for them to be going door to door.

    Dangerous Street Gang

    That was one dangerous street gang you faced with thos Girl Scouts! LOL
    My most recent serious defensive screw up was doing exactly what you said. I opened my door to an unknown and was unarmed. This guy said he was selling steaks in my neighborhood and wanted me to open my Storm Door so he could show me. I said no. He got this quick expression of hatred on his face and glanced at the door handle. Two things saved me; I am a big guy 6'3" 275 Lbs and my Storm Door is actually a Security Door. He left I was glad.

    You guys are taking your life in your hands by only taking a handgun to a girl scout fight. I usually have a loaded AK-47, 12 gauge pump shotgun, and a few grenades at the ready. If they pull out their mint cookies though I surrender and hope they are merciful.

    An intruder will be incapacitated by tear gas or oven spray, but if shot with a .357 Magnum will get angry and kill you.

    It happens more often than you think.

    Your dating yourself.........worse yetI remember that episode

    I have quite a few of the neighborhood kids that 'come and go' and I have to remind myself not to open the door too quickly. I rely on my pooches to recongnize when the knock isn't from one of the 'extended pack'. My dogs are very good at that thankfully.

    Just a thought, but those windows make your house vulnerable, since someone can break and reach through to unlock that door! In such cases, a double tumbler (keyed on both sides and without the key left inserted on the inside!) deadbolt is in order.

    Good luck.

    What happens when your house is on fire and you can't find the key in your panic?

    Security bars over those windows only might be a better solution
