    It's all about situational awareness and being careful and smart. No, I'll answer my door when I deem necessary.

    My four pooches also 'assist' in a 'layered' response to an after-hours knock at the door.

    If there is a knock on the door after dark the wife and I retreat to the safe room and call 911. I then load the shottie.

    Oh well then I would help him.

    I have no problem opening my door at night.

    I just meant I'm not going to protect an Anti-Gun Person who doesn't feel the need to protect themselves.

    I am not going to jeopardize my and my family's safety for anyone, by making myself a target and/or putting my family through the litigation and legal nightmares if I do have to take that persons life.



    (Unless I'm at work, where its my job.)



    Whats with the glock quip?

    the glock comment was just to stir up the glock crowd, some of those guys just keep going on and on and on about how it's the only pistols that can be relied on and anything else is gonna blow-up in your hand

    Yes, but it was so unexpected that I laughed out loud. Like Bob Hope said, timing is everything.

    Lets keep it on topic and watch the name calling and gun bashing.

    Cool

    I use caution anytime someone knocks on my door day or night unexpectantly. I believe it just makes good sense. I have never not answered my door even for those little girls selling the cookies.

    My friend usually goes with me to see who is there.

    I can look out my window and see if there is a car. If not (or not one that I recognize), I exit through my garage because it allows me to come up in back of who is at my door and get the drop on them if necessary. I never ignore someone knocking at my door. My wife and i keep regular hours, and I answer with my weapon ready for an afterhours knock.

    A man, without force, is without the essential dignity of humanity. Human nature is so constituted, that it cannot honor a helpless man, although it can pity him; and even this it cannot do long, if the signs of power do not arise.

    People make their choices based on personal experiences and preferences. If you choose to venture out after dark and another person doesn't, neither one is better or worse than the other. Please don't resort to calling someone weak, craven or cowardly just because they choose not to. It's their choice, be respectful of it and them. For me it depends on the situation.

    I go out routinely at night - often to take a walk, I enjoy it at the end of the day. That said, I wouldn't do it at 2:00 am. But you're right, one of the benefits of carrying is not living in fear all the time. If you feel a prisoner in your own house, why bother? Obsessing on danger can create fear and more fear. I say, take reasonable precautions, and live your life.

    I couldn't agree more. It always puts a burr under my saddle when someone types that anyone venturing out of the safety of their abode at night is said to be "wandering around". I always thought wandering meant without a purpose.
