    strangest thing happened at 3am today!!!

    Well i was sound asleep at 3am till the wind outside picked up and starting whistling through the front door and woke me up so i was laying there and then all of a sudden i heard the door bell ring at 3AM yes 3AM this morning i was like what that cant be and my wife got up and said "what was that" said it was the door bell its 3am so we got up and waked over to the door looked out the pep hole and there was a guy standing there in a black hood waiting he rang the door bell 2 times before we got to the door.
    Heck no we didnt open the door either he left to the back of the apartments. There has been some car break ins before here so we called the police and can you believe it they didnt even patrol here the cop passed by just on the outer parking lot and left didnt even come in to check around at all. No body is to be out after 10pm even adults hanging out here against housing rules and smoking now as of monday .

    Has anybody have this happen to them? total stranger ok didnt know who it was.

    I think i am going to set up a camera in my car dash and rear window at night and in my front window in my apartment i dont have my screen door anymore (wont let me install yet) so i cant put one there but i would. maybe out the bathroom window haha to point down at the door. i'll catch who is breaking in the cars and came to my door if they come again.

    Had it happen a few times. Very scary indeed, all I had to do was go back to sleep and not worry. Triple lock doors at my house. Paranoid like that since I was a kid

    I had someone ring my bell at 4:16am last week, no one at the front door. Went to the rear of the house, no one. Went back to bed, tired the next day because I hate being woke up.

    A .410 under my bed makes me feel better. Happened to my wife while I was away a few years ago. Guy starts banging and pushing on the door at like 2am. Dog goes nuts and my wife goes downstairs but the guy was gone. Turns out he went a few doors down, found our neighbours front door unlocked and held the owner at knife point till the cops came and he gave up. Single shot, wife knows how to load it... I feel better.

    We live in a pretty good area, but we have had people do things like you guys mentioned. In fact we have had someone break in, but thanks to our Rottweiler the robber was gone in a hurry

    yup thats what i did after only though i had my peace keeper as i father in law says in my dresser draw. I think its the new upgraded solar panels, everything new here even most of our furniture as well because we bought it new and dont use it much. Crazy people around here there going to be putting up a fence around not sure when though. We cant have firearms here but we do anyways they wont protect us and i have my hunting knives by my bed. My aim is spot on over 800FT wether throwing a knife/shooting practiced when i was young and seemed to stick. My cusin thought me how to throw curve balls at 100mph spot on him playing in the minor leagues.
    I do need to get me shot gun. Dog will come when we buy our house maybe an american bull dog or pit bull lol.

    The house we buy may be in the boonies with about 3-5 acres and the nearest house is like 200-300 yards from the property line of the house we buy and a population of about 1000 i think it has give or take a few.


    On topic: dont really need a knife or gun to handle someone but at the same time i dont want to hurt my self either like breaking my hand on them or something and have that hassle if you know what i mean its easier

    When my wife and I first moved into our old apartment, we forgot to lock the door one evening. I was sitting in the chair in the living room using my laptop, and my wife just happened to be walking past the front door when it flung open and a guy walked in with another guy behind him. My wife screamed, I jumped up throwing my laptop on the couch and started towards them yelling something I can't type here. They took off running and I chased them a ways. I think they were drunk and forgot to go up the extra flight of stairs to the apartment above us. I'm a very big guy, 6'6", so I hope I put a good scare into them lol.

    If the doorbell rings at midnight and no one is there when you open it, then it's probably teenagers plying 'ding dong ditch' me being a teenager I used to do this until I grew up. A lot of teens do it. It's a popular game.
