If, for any possible reason in the universe, police make a 'no-knock' breach into my house I'll probably never know it.
I carry at home.
When I start shooting to protect myself and other family from 'home invaders', I know if it is LE I will be shredded by their suppressive fire.
No-knock means no-chance for the person in the home. ... by design.
I am a law-abiding U. S. citizen. I have no reason to expect the police to be bashing in my door, so I will presume they are imposters. Hesitating will cost me the best time-advantage I will have in repelling their breach. .. the moment they enter.
If, on the other hand, they knock first and I have the time to confirm with 9-1-1 that for some reason the police are indeed at my address, we'll exchange 'code words' before I open up to them.
....... yeah, I know .... good luck with that!

My biggest fear is a no knock wrong address warrant at my home. I too have no reason to be invaded yet I have heard of several occurrences in which the law-abiding homeowner was killed by the police when they burst in at the wrong address. One in Arizona not too long ago and another some few years back in a rural area Northwest of Los Angeles. IIRC the LA case involved an unreliable informant on the police payrole. In neither of these cases was anyone charged.
