But that wasn't what I was responding to. I was responding to your comment that you would rather encounter a criminal breaking into your house than to come home to find it had been broken into in your absence.
And I stand by that comment, because I in fact, was responding to your statement:
Quote:
It's not terribly uncommon for burglars to knock to determine if anyone is home and if they get no answer, to attempt entry.
These particular burglars, I can practically guarantee, are NOT looking for a violent encounter, and will probably flee the scene empty handed at the sight of a determined homeowner holding a gun. I'd feel safer betting on those odds than betting on a safe return from my neighborhood 7-11.

Those looking for, or not caring about, a violent encounter are probably going to cave your door in without checking for occupance. But of course, that's JMO.
