How many seconds does it take to get to a front door from a bedroom or other room in most houses? I would think a person of average mobility in an average house could get to their front door from any room in about 5 to 30 seconds. I have to go down a flight of stairs and traverse the entire house but I can do it in about 15 seconds. So it is possible that if the intruder was not able to breach the door with a single kick but had to use multiple kicks or shoot the door then kick it or shove it then the father could have arrived at the hallway just as the door was being breached and then been shot. Or he could have gotten there before the door was breached and been there as it was breached. I don't think there is a way for us to know that. I am not sure it matters either other than this situation at the door probably all took place in under a minute from start to finish.

We don't know what the situation was in that house or what the situation was with their guns. The mother and daughter might have had some familiarity with guns but that doesn't mean they would know what to do in a panic situation. Guns are something that have to be almost an automatic conditioned response for someone to be really comfortable using them in an emergency. That takes many hours at the range. Preferably hundreds of hours of shooting. At least dozens of hours. Most women aren't that interested in them to put in that kind of time with them. Frankly they bore me and I go to the range because my SO drags me there and makes me practice sometimes.

This kind of stuff goes down really fast and I am sure most people panic and don't always make the most logical move. On the part of the father, confronting the intruder might have been his only choice if he couldn't get to his guns in time. Or it might have been a reflex action to go towards the intruder rather than pick a different strategy. Because he may not have had time to do something else. In hindsight, maybe he could have run for the daughter's room and put her out the window and told her to run then taken his stand there. Who knows. But he didn't have the luxury of thinking through scenarios. Most people go into flight or flight mode. For men, it is usually fight mode by instinct and for women flight mode. So he confronted the intruder and they hid. For the mother and daughter, hiding in a room and locking the door, like the bathroom, might have been a panic instinct rather than trying to get to guns that they may not have been comfortable using or loading or that they weren't sure they could get to in time.

We are very proud of the fact that we are the oldest locksmiths Nottingham founded and still operating in the city. Originally the business was created as Lock & Safe Radford and operated out of a small workshop behind the family home on Radford Blvd in the heart of Nottingham. During this period of time Radford was a thriving working class area with a factory on every corner including famous sites like Players Cigarettes & Rayleigh Bicycles and the family business thrived providing and maintaining secure locks for factory gates and doors and safes and lock rooms for the workers wages to be stored and payed out from. In the late 1970's the business had out grown the humble workshop and a dedicated shop, workshop and warehouse was opened just down the blvd in Lenton in a purpose built modern unit. At this point in time the business had changed, the focus on safes and there maintenance and supply had now gone. Modern banking saw workers payed direct into bank accounts and not the beloved brown envelopes they used to collect in person and most of the factory's had now closed or had moved production out of the area so the name changed and become LS Locksmiths Nottingham to indicate we were more then just lock and safe people but that we encompassed the whole security side for both commercial and domestic customers during this time the Nottingham locksmiths were in the hands of two second generation locksmith brothers. With the advent of the internet the business saw the foresight of being able to offer products, services and even training online and LockSmart was born, in keeping with the original Nottingham locksmiths name the L & S stands out proud. LockSmart Locksmiths is LS Locksmiths just like it was once Lock & Key Radford always evolving but keeping one thing the same... we will always offer the customer the best service at the very best price that's why we've lasted so long and are the oldest locksmith Nottingham.

When it comes to your interior or exterior door has been kicked In excessive situation the door frame and the wooden around the door area knob can either be cracked or broke. Most of the time these problems can be done with wood stick, wood product, and a wood hold. Recently i have same problem with my garage door once i thought it was same like your problem but the situation was different the door was break to the end of wall and want to be repair on urgent bases so i called Garage Door Repair in Santa Clara CA they had fix the door in proper way. Anyways You might try replacing the portion that splintered by using good joinery techniques to fit in a new section of frame. 

I'm still baffled by the fact that James was shot and killed near the front door, but all of his known guns are accounted for and were not removed from wherever he stores them. If someone rang the bell, he may have gone to the door without a gun, but you'd think he'd at least have had it in the back of his mind that he should maybe be thinking about having one accessible. Then, if he didn't open the door, that tells you he perceived the person at the door to be a threat. So wouldn't he at least be retreating toward his guns when the person kicked the door in? That makes me think the perp just kicked the door in right away and that was the first sign to the family of any trouble at all. But then, why would James go to investigate the noise without grabbing a gun first? #locksmithnottingham

I'm picturing this: You live in a rural area. Lots of animals and such. You have guns. They make you feel safer, but you have never had to use them on a person. You have never experienced a home invasion. You hear a noise or knock and go to peek outside, expecting a raccoon. Imagine the horror to find a man trying to GET INTO YOUR HOUSE. Your wife and child are in the kitchen. If you go for the gun you are running past them. Instinctively you hold your ground between your family and the invader, screaming at your wife to call 911, grab the gun, get back or whatever. She is slow to respond in her own shock, and instead yells "Huh?" or "Why?" In the meantime the guy starts kicking the door. You scream "What the fuck!? What are you doing?!" Still slow to realize how imminent the danger is, and in shock at the sudden turn of events. You still don't move away, still instinctively standing in front of the door because YOUR CHILD IS NOW RIGHT BEHIND YOU. You tell her to get back, but she isn't comprehending what's in front of her. None of you are. And then it's too late.
