    Of course in my small community(country), I know all the SO's and the conversation would go more like, Ed, WTF are you doing knocking on my door at 2am and do you want a beer Seriously, I went to school with most of these guys
    Lucky you.

    Never shoot a large caliber man with a small caliber bullet.

    Absolutely inform them you are legally armed and ask calmly and respectfully for instructions before opening the door.

    Probably the best thing to do is if you know it is the cops, is answer the door buck naked. They will probably be so taken back by the sight they will forget what they came there for.

    I like 17heavys FIRST response here and more than likely handle it like that. Where I live I'm in a ETJ area so it could be the Sheriff it could be a City cop. With the the city police knowing how they do 'business' I wouldn't say a word about the weapon and probably tuck it in my belt or lay it by the door. I'm not letting any LEO inside, that's why I have a porch with chairs.

    Welcome mat:


    ALWAYS cooperate with the police! However, when it comes to search and seizure laws, exercise your rights. There is a law in NC prohibiting a magazine feeding device with more than 31 rounds of ammunition. A device that holds over 31 rounds classifies the weapon as a machine gun and a weapon of mass destruction. Well, I have plenty of them and no one that I know of has ever been charged with one. I don't want a rookie blue to make me his first.

    I actually had this happen to me. I have an alarm system and one stormy night very high winds caused one of the doors to move enough to separate the door magnets in the frame. The local police department responded. I was awakened not by the knock on the door, but by the glare of flashlights outside my bedroom windows. I thought someone was trying to break in my house (my alarm system has a light that activates, and it was flashing). I told my wife to call 911, and I grabbed my shotgun and took up a position where I could control the stairs to the upper level. Then there was a forceful knock on the door, and the doorbell rang. I went to the door, shotgun in hand at low ready, and asked who it was. I could see the police cars, and so I opened the door, after I set the shotgun down inside the door to my library/study. The policemen were very polite, explained why they were there, and I had them come in and help me make sure the house was secure. I thanked them for their help, and gave them a couple of cold bottled waters for the patrol car ride. I told them about the shotgun, but only after I had seen their vehicles and uniforms, and they had come inside where they could see my hands were empty. They said I had handled it right, and they did not even secure the gun...no round was chambered.

    The city has an ordinance that gave you three "false alarms" and after that they would invoice the alarm owner $75.00 to cover the response costs. Seemed more than fair to me....

    I just stayed very calm, and put the dog in the garage, while they did their sweep...and made damn sure they could see I was on their side!!

    It wouldn't hurt to call 911 and be sure they are cops.

    First, don't open the door. You don't have to legally.

    Second, abiding by the first step, you can still legally keep your firearm concealed and/or put away.
