    I have the doorbell camera. If an unknown rings the bell I can see, hear and question them via the app from wherever I happen to be. The ring is set to sound like a barking dog.

    Pin his foot in the door, then introduce lead into his torso until his version matches yours.

    Door chains are useless. I don't answer the door at night, I have a surveillance camera the visitor can't see but if I don't know who the person is I won't answer the door. Door bell cameras are good for a deterrent but they can also be covered up because they are visible. Spy vs Spy.

    skip to :25 seconds (introductions suck ass)

    The path that leads to truth is littered with the bodies of the ignorant

    Like others have indicated...I don't answer the door, unless I am expecting someone.

    I did happen to walk by our side door, which we use most of the time and noticed a strange truck in my driveway, with the tail gate down...in front of a pile of metal, copper and HW heaters...all scrap. I pulled my G from waist and placed my hand on side of door, opening the door with other hand and asking the guy what he was doing. He looks a little surprised and then proceeds to start walking over to the door. I tell him stop. He does...and at that moment puts up both hands and says...don't shoot! I ask him, what the hell do you think you are doing? He says one of the neighbors had some stuff to pick up and he noticed the pile I had. Funny thing is, the neighbor did have some goods for pickup, so I knew he was at a minimum being honest about how he saw my stuff.

    At that point, I pulled my arm down, let him see my G and re-holstered. Ended up taking his contact info and chatted with him for about 20 minutes. I had about 1500 bucks worth of scrap in that pile.

    FYI...my wife and kids don't open the door for anyone...even if its a cop. Talk thru the door, but don't open it.

    I wouldn't stand behind the door either, they'll just shoot thru it if they want.

I thought to myself, if this was me would I find a phone and call 911 or grab my pistol and say if you don't get your foot out of my door, I'll blow it off.
    After a bit, the man identified himself as a process server and wanted to give her a warrant to appear in court to appear as a witness.

    Never open the door for someone you don't know, no exceptions, banging or otherwise.
    If the guy is legit then the entire dangerous situation could be avoided simply by not opening the door.

    Door chains are no defense against attack, they are only held in by small screws in the door trim, and the chain itself is easily snapped anyway.
    Use a fish eye peephole and/or a door camera.

    Regardless, an actual determined violent intruder will come in by breaking a window.
    The only truly effective defense against forceful home invasion is a gun and knowing how to use it.

    As for this process server and his extremely aggressive tactics, he is way out of line and has no justification for his actions.
    If he behaves that way regularly it is probably only a matter of time until he ends up hospitalized or dead.
