I have 2 doors. First is always locked, that's the porch. If you get through that I'll hear what's coming. Ill have one of the following on my person. Glock 17, Glock 30, Smith 442. I much rather grab a knife from the kitchen that's right there. It all depends what weapons the Intruder or intruders have. The poor intruder would really get it if he came across the screening banshee of a wife.
