    For me atleast. Apparently my roommate (female) came in with some friends jumping on my bed last night trying to wake me up to go skinny dipping at the apartments hottub, and they said I was yelling for them to get out. I remember nothing. Thus I conclud that apparently if someone broke into my house, and threatened my life I would either sleep through it or wake up too late to defend myself anyway

    When tones drop at work, I sleep through them. But when I hear odd sounds that are out of the ordinary, I'm wide awake. I heard someone pull up in my driveway at 0300 once, watched them drive through my yard and hit a 1" steel pole that was sticking about 1' out of the ground, and about 2' down. They probably messed their car up bigtime.

    Yeah, I have my pistol and about 1500 rnds of ammo bedside. I'm ready for the invasion, but i don't think i'd ever wake up to hear it.

    I worry about that, but what can you do? It's still better to have one than not.

    I too can sleep through anything that's not out of the ordinary but the instant I hear something that's not supposed to be there I am wide awake.

    My cell phone is about the only thing that wakes me up immediately. Nothing else wakes me up at night. A mouse farting in the front yard would wake up my fiance, though. If she needs to wake me up in the middle of the night she just calls my cell phone.

    I'm one of those people that doesn't wake up to certain sounds... but I wake up if I hear the front door open... Hell, the sound of the lock turning wakes me up and I can barely even hear that... But thunder, someone shaking me, someone talking to me... I sleep like a log.

    I can sleep thru the normal sounds, but anything out of the ordinary and I wake up quick. Also our dogs are great alarms. If they here anyone ourside they'll make a little noise. But if someone comes to the door they FREAK OUT.

    when i used to ride the bus in high school i'd sleep through my 3 alarm clocks no problem. i'd hear the door handle turn on the landing of the stairs when my mom opened it on her way up to wake me up because i overslept and i'd shoot the fuck out of bed and throw on my uniform pants and be like "i'm wide awake, mom" just so she didn't bitch at me.

    she told me that one day on a saturday i cursed her out for like 5 minutes when she tried to wake me up at 10 as i requested. i did not remember doing so when she told me this.

    Unless they break in and shoot with your own gun, making it look like a suicide. :rofl:

    I too sleep through almost anything, but the odd sounds will wake me up. Except one time when my house alarm went off and my mom, who was visiting, woke me up and I sent her down there to check while I slept. LOL

    Thats why you have a dog patroling your house, the barks will wake you up, and probley scare somebody away, the gun is a last ditch effot of protection.

    Hence the reason for a dog.

    I wake up instantly when light changes, but sounds, I'm not so fast.
