If ya had put a rubber on the end of that AR muzzle, an barrel lube job would have not been necessary, and you could have been prepared in two ways.

Think of it like this... You're just slightly ahead of the survival curve. Your rifle should be your primary firearm with a big bore handgun for a back-up. That's exactly what kept me alive for 19 months in Viet Nam with the paratroopers. If you're paranoid then so am I. Up until the time I left Viet Nam, I always carried a rifle, a couple of grenades, a handgun and knife or bayonet with me everywhere I went over there. You're being smart to just be prepared for those "just in case situations." Now, the next question is, "Do you have some sort of scope mounted on your rifle or not?" A good tactical scope gives you a little more than normal advantage over other shooters if trouble suddenly pops up.

just cuz your paranoid does NOT mean they arent out to get ya.

having a rifle handy if you can manage it is very very wise

I don't carry a rifle in my truck or car as I'm paranoid in a different way. I don't like to leave firearms in my rides in case they are stolen...now I just armed a car thief. I expect if I could design a hide spot so it wasn't in the a location a person stealing a car/truck I might look but then it would be hard to get to if I needed it. I will keep with the firearm on body and expect in most real world situatuions it will surfice. As much as I would like to keep an AR in my truck, I haven't found a spot the BG wouldn't find it and I don't want to arm the BG.

Don't worry, my roommates call me paranoid when I get up off the couch and lock the door behind them....

I've been called paranoid for carrying ONE gun, my PM9.

Honestly?

I wouldn't call you paranoid. For me personally, that's overkill. No pun intended. For you, that might be different and doesn't make you paranoid. What would make you paranoid would be clutching your gun at every waking moment while wearing an aluminum foil hat.

Ok, that's worse. I mean seriously..... someone that leaves the doors unlocked is just asking for trouble.

At least you will have proof that it was a forced entry, and that you didn't just invite the criminal in.

Damn right I'm paranoid.
Paranoid like a fox.
If being properly prepared is "paranoid".
