He cannot simply start going through your house and searching without a warrant, consent, or an exigent circumstance (pretty fine lines on this).
I don't let any uninvited stranger into my house, LEO or not.

Is he even a real LEO, or one dressed as one?

Even if he's an LEO, does he have an ulterior motive?

If he's insisting he needs to come in, then he's doing it with a warrant. If he needs to talk to me or a member of my family, it will be with an attorney present.

Local guy had his grandson living with him. Grandson was a really popular guy. Police figured out the kid was dealing pot out of the house, police came in under false pretenses and found the dope. Grandpa lost his house. Grandpa didn't believe he had anything to hide, and was being a nice guy.

I do not consent to a search.

I'd never ever yell anything at a threat, why announce your position? Last thing any invader would see is the muzzle flash from a VZ58, M16A1 or G20 - whatever is handy and appropriate at the moment, I keep them all hot

Each event must be evaluated on the basis of all available information at the time. Following a fixed procedure or a checklist may get you killed or arrested.

Big Jim has it right with two dogs. If one should miss the bump in the night the other sure won't. And one will always get the other one going....for the smallest reason.

This is assuming its an actual home invasion. I've always got a handgun on me when I'm awake and one within reach if I'm not.

Step one grab the ak47 we keep in a undisclosed location as a pistol is not as good as a rifle. Step two grab the cell phone. Step three retreat to bedroom door which is a defensible location in our house and covers all entrences. Step four call 911.

I'm under no obligation to warn an intruder they are about to enter a firing lane. They didn't call ahead to announce coming over to kill me and the wife why I should be courteous to them??

I don't mean to be redundant, but the above is about all you should do in this situation if you wish to survive guys and gals!

sorry but i have to disagree. every situation is different as are the dynamics of that situation when it occurs. house layouts are different. number of occupants in the home will be different. the age and abilities of those occupants will be different.

there are no one set of rules that can apply here.
