    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.
    Ignorance is a long way from stupid, but left unchecked, can get there real fast.

In addition, the master bath has a huge deep tiled tub as part of the shower, in the event of an emergency she is to hunker down in the tub with her 870, and the dogs. The door leading to the bathroom is a solid oak door, with the appropriate locks( I forgot how deep I set them, but they're deep). Once in the tub,
    door locked she is only to open it for me(with the appropriate words, or the police(she is not to open the door to the police unless instructed to by the 911 operator). My plan may not be
    to everyone's liking, but it's the best I could come up with, given our situation.

    Can you recall a brand name or a link to this product? I've searched and don't see anything like that with which you described. Thanks for the responses.

    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?

    (link is just an example)

    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.)
