    I peek out the dining room window, which is behind anyone at the door. If I don't know the knocker I respond through the door. Always have a pistol in my fist!
    I've become so cynical about the police that I wouldn't put it past them to use a loophole like you describe!

    Remember our vice president said to get a shotgun and shoot through the door. Did say anything about checking to see who is there. Sounds like he's ok with shoot first ask questions later.

    I like how they care if you offend the caller.
    What happened to "get the bubblegum off my porch!!!" ?

    I answered a knock on my door an hour ago. I just got back from picking up a gas grill for my neighbor! I gotta start using the peep hole!

    I never answer the door without looking out the window, even after that I always have a gun.

    Oddly, I put some cheap-o cameras up a while ago, really cuts down on the goofballs that show up at my door.

    My personal favorite is, "HEY! YOU WANT TO MEET MY DOGS!?!?"
    A pair of Rottweilers or, more recently, a Bullmastif going nuts in the background.

    We have one of them fancy front doors with about a 3/4 window in it all cut glass and pretty With two layers of 1/2" Lexan on both sides easy to see through tough as nails to try to break through. No one can knock on my front door with out us being able to see who it is. Course you can't get to the front door until your get through the security screen door on the front of the fully enclosed front porch. I think of my front porch as my bonus room and free fire zone.
