About 10:30 last night I had a pretty scruffy looking guy knocking on our door. My wife and I had no idea who he was so I grabbed my M&P and my wife grabbed her PPS. My wife went to the nursery to make sure the baby was safe and I headed out to see what the guy wanted. I only opened the main door leaving the metal security door closed and locked and asked what he needed.
He said that he and his buddy had run out of gass and need my help. He kept stressing that he was a good guy and didn't want any trouble. I let him know that I didn't have any gas for him but I would call AAA or a wrecker for him. At this point he said no and asked if he could come in and use the phone. I obviously told him no, and this is when it took a turn for the worse. When I told him no, he starte to say something and reach and turned my door knob which was thankfully locked.
During this whole conversation I have had my pistol behind my back. When he reached for the door I stepped back and brought my gun to a low ready and yelled at the guy to get the he'll of my property before he got his sorry butt shot. He started screaming that he didn't want any trouble and please don't call the police and started backing away from the door.
At this point I yelled for my wife to call 911 and I kept the guy in sight until he got into his supposedly broke down car and drove off.
I couldn't get the tag but I got a good description of the guy and the car for the police. I filled out a whole report and I sure hope this guy is caught before he hurts someone.
Needless to say it took a while to get to sleep last night, and first thing this morning I purchased a new camera system for the house.
I am now thinking that I probably made a mistake about opening the door but I felt pretty comfortable with the metal security door. I just really lucky he didn't pull anything when he saw my pistol.
Anyway, I appreciate everyones opinion her so let me know what you think. I'm a little concerned about this guy Comming back while I'm not home. My wife works out of the house so she and my son are home alone most of the day.
