    waiting for my CCL to show up in the mail any day now. My wife asked me why I felt the news to start carrying
    I asked her if she had watched the news lately. You can't even go eat at Cracker Barrel these days without the possibility that some lunatic is going to rum in with a gun and start shooting. So she asked if I was just going to live my life I'm fear. I said no, I'm going to live my life like normal but I'm damn well going to be prepared if the s*** hits the fan and I need to protect myself or the people I care about.

    That is a very odd subject to come up without some reason. A persons paranoia is not a normal water cooler conversation. I think the OP might be initiating the discussion without realizing it.

    This is what my CCW instructor told us. Don't ever tell anyone if you are carrying or not, except "properly" at a stop by LEO.

I of course just laughed..lol they wouldnt understand since mst live in their little bubbles and think walking in a park at night at 10pm should be absolutely safe....sigh.
    Should have laughed and said; "not nervous at all since I'm armed"

    Thinking "they are out to get me" is not paranoia when daily news reports indicate predators really are out to get us.

    I was thinking the same thing.......they lived in a good neighborhood, and granted that probably lowers your risk but does not give you 100% immunity from BG's.

    I don't broadcast that I CCW, a few know me well enough that they expect that I would. Like some previous examples, those who suggest you are paranoid, don't they drive around with a spare tire? Good grief, they must be paranoid about having a flat!

    Folks will disagree with me on this but I think you are paranoid if you carry 24/7 and refuse to go any place that does not allow carry. One single person comes to mind who posted he won't go to Disney World (Land?) with his kids because he can't carry. Now, don't get me wrong. It is not meant to be an insult. Everybody has the right to carry and defend themselves and their loved ones as they see fit. I do not ridicule or think someone is strange for literally carrying 24/7 (minus shower I hope!). It is just not me. I do not carry on runs because chances are extremely low I will be assaulted running 12 miles in the middle of nowhere with a 25 dollar MP3 player on me. I do not carry at home but nor do I keep my EDC and guns locked in a safe. They are all close by and I have a security system. Those are risk assessments I have done and willing to live with.

    I have terroristic threatening charges filed on a local scumbag that has been threatening me for six years. The threats have escalated forcing me carry all the time. I don't want to carry all the time but now I have a legitimate threat forcing me to remain armed all the time.

    My girlfriend, who thinks I'm a bit paranoid just for carrying, had an aha moment on the highway yesterday. We got into a little bit of an argument because of her back seat driving. She explained it away by saying that after getting run off the road by an 18 wheeler, she gets anxious around them. I told her "well now do you understand why after getting robbed, threatend by gangs, home invasion, ... why I carry and keep guns around the house?". I saw the light bulb go on.

    Before this aha moment, she would sometimes roll her eyes just because I would keep a loaded Glock downstairs (hidden) during the daytime and take it upstairs with us at bedtime. She told her friends that I carry, so I'm sure some of them may think I'm paranoid, not that I really give a crap.

    I have heard that conservative is a liberal who has been mugged. Everyone thinks it won't happen to them until it does. Some of them won't get a second chance.

    The real trick is to upgrade your situational awareness and preparedness without actually losing your ability to loosen up and have fun in public. When you can no longer lighten up enough to have fun while out around town, THEN you ARE too paranoid. I recently met a guy at a friends birthday party who has a CC permit and stashes guns everywhere in his truck and home. He just can't loosen up and have fun. While we laugh and have fun, he sits there like a bump on a log. He won't disarm to have a drink either.

    If the threats are real, not the product of an overactive imagination, then what you are doing is 110% understandable.
    If the threats are real, I sincerely hope you are doing much more than merely carrying to protect yourself.

    This book, "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin De Becker might be of some help.

    The threats are real, if I'm lucky he will OD on heroin soon. I'm not really afraid, just concerned and alert. I've taken steps through the Prosecuting attorney to keep this guy away from me.

    I walked into a store tonight after work......all four clerks behind the counter in simulcast said very loud, "Which Glock are you carrying today?". Crap..... Busted..... Who have these guys been talking to? Am I printing that bad?
    And then I came to my senses......I was at my local gun store to have nights sights installed on my Glock 27. Don't ask, don't tell doesn't work when a few guys know the serial number of every gun you've purchased in the last year.
    BTW, 15 minutes in and out with a new set of night eyes on my G27. I love those guys.
    Kimbers are the guns you show your friends....Glocks are the ones you show your enemies.
