    Gotta ask, given that your profile states that you are unemployed why would you have a uniform and a badge on your belt?

    Heck of a good question, perhaps a profile needs an update.

    Because I was unemployed but now have a state job. Didn't realize anyone bothered to search ancient profiles.

    I understand if you feel the need to answer the door with a gun. That's your right, and by god please use it if its your thing. Personally, I fall into the camp that being armed with situational awareness is enough. For instance, I don't just blindly open the door like some salivating Pavlovian pup (unlike other people who live with me). I check the peephole. 99.9% of the time, its someone I know or the UPS employee. If its not, I profile them. That's right, I use stereotyping and profiling to enhance my judgment. Does he look like a BG?

    I guess I'm just privileged and mildly careless enough to take the calculated risk of not always having to grab my piece before answering the door *assuming its not on me*

    It's just another layer in determining the credibility of a poster. If someone is dishing out tactical advise, but their profile lists them as a carny barker, I might not take it as seriously.

    I have no reason not to answer my door generally when people knock or ring the bell. I will look to see who it is first. If I am dressed I have a gun on, but that is just how it happens.

    When people cacoon themselves off from the outside world and ignore what is going on around them, I believe that enables the criminal element the ability to move and act without regard to who is watching and or being caught doing bad things.

    I am not saying that everyone should open the door every time it rings under every circumstance.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.
