Had a hooker knocking on the door of the hotel room with the wife and youngins all snuggled up together in the bed. Tried wispering through the door to the young lady, it woke up the bride who wanted to know who was at the door, then my daughter wanted to know what a hooker was…..

I would call the police first and fully describe the situation, I would have my G17 with me though.

You would want to call 911 and advise the intruder that you have a gun and aren't afraid to use it.

This is based on a real scenario that happened to an aquaintance recently. I have my opinion; I'm interested in yours.

I just leaned over the edge of the half wall that allowed me to look down the stair and talked to the police. Had the person broken the door down, he would have been trapped in a shooters alley with only 2 ways to go. 1) towards me who would have been shooting 2) back out the door.

Cops arrived. . then more cops arrived. . . then more cops arrived Took 5 of them to take him down. Mace had zero effect on him. He was high and had outstanding warrants for prior assaults against the police. The police that responded were "less than gentle" with him. . .
That warms my heart...

Personally, I think residential burglary/home invasions are among the worst crimes you can commit.

Oh, yes. I would tell 911 that I am armed and my appearance.

I know every state is different, but if I remember right, in NC you can use deadly force on someone trying to kick in your door, but once they're actually in your house, they have to be trying to harm you or someone else. Seems like a crazy law to me, but I'm not a lawyer, and its possible I read it wrong. Thanks for the reminder to review the laws before I head back there this weekend!

You don't know if the guy's drunk or pretending to be drunk in order to trick you into opening the door.
This is a point that deserves emphasis.

And taking it a couple of steps further, even if he really is drunk or high, it was HIS choice to take something that impaired his judgement. The fact that he is at the wrong house and trying to force the door clearly demonstrates that his judgement is seriously impaired, and that makes him MORE of a threat to my family, not less.

So absolutely call 911 and absolutely do not open the door. But if he breaches the door I am not waiting for a tox screen to come back before I defend myself. The guy breaking my door down created this situation, regardless of what chemicals he ingested to get himself to that point.

Worse in a residence than in an apartment. I can't stand apartments/condos.

I actually had a similar experience thirty years ago. My wife and I had just gotten married and we were living in an apartment. The apartment complex was nice enough, it wasn’t a luxurious complex nor a ghetto.

Around 2:00 a.m. we were awakened by someone pounding on the door and calling out a woman’s name. He sounded drunk.

I yelled through the door that he had the wrong apartment. He kept yelling so either he didn’t understand me or he didn’t believe me. He also kept pounding on the door and saying he was going to break the door.

I grabbed my handgun and my wife called 911 to report the guy. I looked out the peep hole and I didn’t recognize the guy. I told him we called the police and they were on their way. He finally left and the police showed up about 10 minutes later. They said they had looked around the complex and didn’t find him.

I never told the police I was armed and I never told the drunk either.

Luckily, my compartment is on the second floor; my door is on the first floor. I've got a living room window that is above and slightly to the North of the door down below, and a balcony further to the North.

I won't open the door, but I can open the window, or walk out on to the balcony, look down, see the door, and talk with the "visitor." If they refuse to leave or try to gain entry I'll have 911 on speaker phone.

If they do gain entry, they'll have to walk up the interior stairway where they will be lit up with a Surefire flashlight and loudly asked to leave. (all for the benefit of the 911 recording) If they don't it's very likely that paragraph 2 of Colorado's Revised Statute 18-1-704.5 will come into play.

Take my double barreled shotgun and fire two blasts out the window...LOL

Ok in all seriousness.

All the above. I grab my gun and tell him I am armed and will shoot if he enters and that the police are on their way. Then call 911. Then finally hope for his sake the cops arrive before he makes entry, because at that point he will be lucky if he leaves on a stretcher rather than a body bag. I have no desire to take someone else's life but if I have to choose between me or other innocents and the bad guy, sorry he looses and I will fire until he is no longer a threat to anyone.

At 4 A.M. if someone was pounding on my door, I'd probably think it was my alarm clock waking me up, go take a pee, and start a pot of coffee. The sight of me walking around in my undies would probably scare him away.

C'mon man, you called the hooker. It's ok, we've all done it.

Well if you were Joe Biden you'd probably shoot through the door. If I was able to I'd call 911 with my gun ready. But I'd be more concerned about having my gun ready incase he breaks down the door. And I was gonna make a "Dave's not here" reference but that one was already taken.
