Just calling 911 to report activity in your neighborhood is being painted as at "pattern" of behavior that suggests one is "fed up and willing to take matters into his own hands." The old if you see something say something might just be used against you.

As for just placing my hand on my gun, every time I go to answer my door I do so. That way, should it be something bad, I'm faster at the draw. If everything is kosher, I just drop my hand and the person at the door is none the wiser.
Interesting side-story to that though. One day, about 10am or so, there was a knock at my door. I went to answer, asked who it was, and it was the local police. I still had my hand on my gun when I opened it, saw it really was the cops, and dropped my hand. The officer wanted to let me know that someone had egged my van out front. So we went, looked at it, filed a report, and talked for a few. Before she left, she asked me if I carried. I told her yes, and she said that was smart how I answered the door. She's the only one who has ever noticed that I keep my hand on my gun when answering the door.
