Well it's a bit of a thread detour, but guys standing in front of your door with a can of gas threatening to set fire to your house unless you capitulate:
This is when a .44 magnum or something like 10 ga with #000 Buck comes in handy. They get a lesson in the difference between cover and concealment. Or they're going to learn the second use of a peephole for a resident - used by the resident to line their gun up on target. And then they're going to get lead & wooden splinters.
