I did that barefoot once…of course it took about 4 hard kicks, but the door went in finally. THen there was hot, thick black smoke billowing out from about 3feet and up. Crawled into the kitchen yelling for the girl inside who eventually staggered over and tripped over me..before I carried here out. Yeah, that operation yielded a dazed and confused junky who lit her house on fire. One of my finer moments. Me and another neighbor grabbed fire hoses and put that apartment and the one above it out before the fire dept got there. “When seconds count” right?

Why not be an operator type operator and shoot the hinges off with the shoulder thing that goes up?

If there are any doors still standing by the time you get there then you are not operating hard enough
