  •  I would retreat. If someone is breaking in the (9+ / 0-)

    front door I'd consider running upstairs, especially if I have any option to put 2 locked doors between us and the predator.

    Or if someone is breaking in the back door, I'd consider running out the front door and over to a neighbor.

    Of course you don't have to. But anyone would weigh their options.

    I have no idea what's waiting for me outside and leaving the home to retreat to the outdoors doesn't strike me as a good idea.
    Are you imagining that a predator is coming in one door while their colleagues are lying in wait to ambush you on the way out the back? That's got to be a very rare kind of home invasion to imagine.
