    I was wondering who else would have a Claymore in the hallway.
    I learnt this trick from my Dad when I was 18. Dad is now 84 and still answering the door at night with a S&W 357 Magnum in hand. At 67 .. so do I.

    Grab mossberg 500 with #4 frangible buckshot, and surefire scout (have kids and neighbors), I can not "hunker down" as my kids who sleep upstairs will have heard it and started crying/coming down stairs . My spouce and I (she will have M&P 2.0 5 inch with hydroshock and a TLR-1 HL) will move down hallway to stairs and move up to protect our family. If a face appears in our staircase the wall behind it will need to be replastered and painted. Phone call to 911 will be made as soon as we are by our children's side. As far as condition, my firearms are well loved and lubed.

    As far as being safe, I go in a lot of houses under construction. I am seeing a lot of doors being installed in hallways closing off bedrooms from main house. This will give you more time in case of invasion in dead of night.

    We actually had a past member on here that specialized in crime scene/suicide cleanup. Haven't seen him on here in awhile, but we met at a gun show once and he told me what he did for a living. He makes knives as a side hobby. Insurance companies usually hired him.

    That's because a light will give away your tactical defensive position. I have a thermostat in the hallway that provides some pretty good LED light and a motion detector light that will light up anyone approaching the hallway.

    We have several small Coleman rechargeable flashlights that double as fairly bright night-lights (when plugged in) throughout the house.

    So there's no hand-held light in my in-the-house night-time plan(s) either.

    He did, but it was at about 40 yards with an improved cylinder quail choke.
