I don't want a door blocking my sight picture of an intruder. In my house, the intruder must come to me down a hallway, and from my bed I can aim and fire without ever getting out of bed.
I'm not getting out of bed unless it's a fire, or I have to let the police and coroner in to pick up a body.
Anything else can be taken care of in the AM with a call to the insurance company.

Just a thought here:
If you sleep upstairs or you have a long hallway they have to come down, why not get a steel bar security door?

You can still see and hear what is going on but have a decent barrier that looks nice. When I get a house, that is my plan. Even if it only holds them for 30 seconds, that's 30 extra seconds and you did try to stop them yet again before having to shoot them.

I have a friend who has the same kinds of gates over her sliding doors as you see on gun shops. They lay behind the drapes so you would never know they are there when they are opened.

I want a heavy door at the top of the stairs of our split level. It would be left open most of the time. (hmm, how about steel plate on the bottom half.)
