    Yall also have to realize the difference between a "home invasion" and a burglary. Typically a "home invasion" is a "kick in your door and storm in armed" affair. A burglary, while with no less potential to turn violent or deadly, typically doesn't include the immediate violent assault.

    For a burgulary I think you are very unlikely to be woken up in the middle of the night with somone silly enough to try to rob houses when there are people in it.
    You would be in far more danger coming home and suprising somone in the act and the best tactic would be to make a lot of noise and give the robber an escape route.
    but lets put the scares up you guys anyway

    When we have "home invasion drills" we break into somebody's house. I guess we're doing it wrong.

    What would your response be if you heard your front door broken down and the possibility of armed intruders? Am I being paranoid in that most of the home invasions reported seem to affect defenceless elderly or disabled people living on their own.

    Depends on how far you take it.

    A little contingency planning is due diligence. Especially if you live around people. Not necessarily "high crime" people. Just people. In fact, criminals will case a "low crime" area, for obvious reasons.

    Running some practice scenarios with air soft weapons is probably reasonable, and even kind of fun and challenging. Even better preparedness than simply making the plan, as you actually get to try it out.

    Slicing the pie around your house with a live weapon in the middle of the night on the other hand...

    ...reckless, paranoid, and stupid. JMHO.

    The majority of home invasions are either a knock on the door then force-in or a straight-up door kick; sometimes impersonating the police.

    Most of them are looking for the dope or the money proceeds from selling dope, that's why many are staged as fake police raids...the resident hesitates thinking it really IS the police.

    Naturally not ALL home invasions are to dopers..the horrible story of the Connecticut Dr who had his wife and daughter killed and house set afire for example. And sometimes the invaders (like the police) target the wrong house by accident...but the odds by far land on the "were involved in something that targeted them" side of the coin.

    A recent invasion/murder in my area was discovered when a man was found tied to a chair...murdered in his own home. The media of course painted it as an "innocent suburbanite brutally killed". The truth was that a group of home contractors saw his marijuana grow operation in the house while doing a job and came back later to beat the location of the money proceeds out of the guy..he didn't survive the ordeal needlessly to say.
