    would this person, knocking at the door, be a random stranger?

    "The goal is to be able to answer the door, cradling the baby, and have the person who knocked, truly believe I am cradling a baby. I am thinking that when I open the door I drop the rattle and small thing of baby powder near the visitors feet, so they instinctively pick them up."

    Just don't drop the "baby"......

    Yes........and it is conceivable that there could be several strangers on the outside of the door. My goal is twofold, slightly surprise/stun them for a half second, as they re-assess interacting with someone holding an infant, distract them with something falling near their feet.

    The objective is for me to have a mega-second to assess the situation. How many, do they have firearms, if they have firearms, are they static or deployed. How are they dressed, How old are they, How are they positioned/located/staged and why, where are their hands, is there a decoy, who is really the decision maker out there.

    Depending on conditions in the world, most likely I would not open the door. But the more I reflect on this the more I can see the fake infant could be useful in many situations. There are many useful tools that would fit under a 22" Doll, or even inside a 22" Doll. I am working with a pretend "Bundle" currently, till I order the fake/decoy infant, but as best I can figure the left hand will be restricted to a smaller tool, but the right hand can be holding a large tool.

    This is going to take a lot of practice, to resolve some issues, the biggest is that the tools will start from a position of pointing in opposite directions.

    Remember Ruby Ridge? The mom got shot in the face while holding her kid.

    It will happen again.

    Okay, enough jokes from me, now a serious question: if you think the only people who will knock on your door are enemies, why have a door that opens in the first place? Why not a solid decoy door, with a secret entry positioned so it will give you the instant advantage? Tell only your most trusted friends, if there are any, about the secret entry.....I would think about a trip alarm a few feet away, maybe a hundred, to give me early warning as well.

    Of course, I talk big---an alarm a thousand feet away wouldn't give me enough time to wake up......they'd be inside before my eyes got back in focus.....My only recourse if things get that bad is to sit in the chair with the shotgun loaded and ready at all times. Heckuvaway to live....

    I read the thread and it is confusing and quite silly. I now see it is a game. Would have saved my reading time if you had started off explaining that you intend to use a baby doll as a defense. How manly.

    I fully support you in being as "MANLY" as it is possible. In a post SHTF environment when people will kill you for food, or drugs (Now they just kill you for drugs or something to sell for drugs) you be MANLY. Me I'll look for every edge, including being a "SISSY-MAN".

    Good suggestion..............it might get tricky in a post SHTF environment with zero power, and zero batteries 4 years after the SHTF. Also likely no internet and no phone.

    Not at night.......especially if you live deep in a Alaska National Forest, with no electric. In fact visibility can suck so bad that a rope is attached to the outhouse from the cabin, so I don't get lost in a "White-out" blizzard.

    Well given that I live with large Grizzly Bears in my yard........I am fairly accustomed to being on full alert.

    Most people will 100% agree with you........."Self-abortion" will be the cure for most.

    Then you are doing a good job in finding your way. I just never could admire those who would use others as human shields. And of course if you are thinking that all you meet will be complete savages then they will shoot you through the baby- doll or real so not much protection.

    Not if you've got a .44 magnum hidden in the blanket folds....With your finger on the trigger if you can manage it. Ya' just have to be a little creative when thinking outside the box. :D
