    Do you guys lock your bedroom door at night? Bumper just made me think of this. I always leave it open, thinking I'll hear something better, but now that I think about it, it makes sense to lock the door. One more obstacle for the intruder.

    I've been a light sleeper for years, though I need a full night's sleep. It served me well as an EMT on night shift. My sleep patterns did not change when I started carrying full-time.

    Just me and the wife right now and yes we keep the door locked because if I do hear something in the front room. I will call the cops and set up in the room until they come.

    I sleep very sound but we have two 75 pound four legged burglar alarms that will raise heck if someone even walks by in front of the house. They can hear a cat or another dog walk by across the street.

    Have to agree with uudl. I have two 100 pounders who hear every thing.
    Some times too much!

    I'm sorry...what was the question? I must have drifted off there...

    I kind of think that I would have more trouble sleeping at night if I did NOT have access to a "home defense tool." As it is, I have always been a fairly light sleeper unless exhausted. Sometimes I think the dogs got me to look out for them.
