In this day and age of the home invasion. How many of you come to the door armed?
It saved the life of one guy. He answered the door, one guy standing in a suit acting like he
was selling something, other bad guy wearing a hood comes around the corner with gun in
hand. Now they push their way in the house, home owner calls police two confirmed kills.
You do not think the 9mm is effective? Then let me shoot at you.

Armed. End of discussion.
Additionally, I have a remote alarm that chimes as someone approaches the house, plus a Doberlady and a GSD whom are quit vocal.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Armed, you never know. My wife also.
Actually I don't understand the question; why would you NOT be armed ???

The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

If armed if I am awake. I have been known to simply lay my pistol on the mantel (after all the kids are in bed) and I'll take it with me if I leae the room.

In the garage on Saturday...armed!
Cutting the grass...armed!
Watching T.V. ...armed!
At the table for dinner...armed!
Just got in from school, and I'm on the computer...armed!
Answering the door...armed!
Anywhere else, except school...armed!
That pretty well sums it up...

Armed. But I can tell you for a fact it scares the crap out of the neighbors when I answer the door after dark and they see my trusty companion in my hand.
It was unitentional, but it was late and he locked himself out of his and then when he knocked on my door, he stood to where I couldn't see him out of the window or the door. So when I cracked the door, he leaned over to where I could see him. He then told me his problem, so I invited him in so he could call his landlord. In the process of concealing my sidearm back inside me jeans (mexican style, cause I had already removed my holster) he saw what I had. He never said anything to me, but sometimes actions speak louder than words.
Not only armed... but hand on the gun grip as I open it.... and that's even tho I have a peak hole.
If I open the door to someone I don't know, my gun is unholstered and in my hand, out of sight for the moment. If there is a home invasion, it will be violent, quick, and loud (my contributions).
One of these days I'll get one of those camera-speaker thingies so I can talk to someone without opening the door.
I always go to the door armed. If my wife is answering it and I'm here, then I'm in the foyer with the gun. The times have gotten dangerous, but it's been going downhill for a while. Thirty years ago, an elderly friend of mine answered the door to find 4 people, asking to come in and use the phone saying their car broke down. He refused, offering to call someone for them. They then pushed their way in, beat him and his wife up, ransacked the house, and took what they wanted. They left my friend and his wife tied to chairs, and set the house on fire. The only reason they survived is that the flames burned through the ropes allowing him to untie his wife, and get her out of the house. It turned out that 2 of the men were James and Linwood Briley, 2 of the worst serial killers in Virginia history. The Briley brothers even broke out of Va's maximum security prison (there was an A&E program about the escape). I always answer the door armed, and will continue to do so.
