Just curious, because at this point, I'm not sure which side of the line I'm on.

The two aren't exclusory. You can be cautious [i]because[/i] you're paranoid. And like they say, "Just because you're paranoid, it doesn't mean they AREN'T out to get you!"

It's the same line that separates genius and madness.

Paranoia is unfounded caution is needed. If you are able to step back and ask your self you are most likly fine.

OK, here's some examples. Whenever I'm outside my house (sometimes even inside), I'm carrying. Everywhere. Except for work. Once I was in a church where the air conditioner was busted, and it was hotter than you would believe. I couldn't take off my jacket, because it would have exposed my 1911. So I sat there sweating. But I wasn't taking my pistol off just so I could ditch the jacket. Whenever I'm shopping, I carry all my bags in my left hand. I'm a right handed shooter, so my right hand is always free. Now, I've practiced getting my shirt or jacket up with my left hand to get to my pistol with my right hand. I've also practiced getting my clothing out of the way with my right thumb, while dropping anything in my left hand, and getting the pistol into presentation. Practice, practice, practice, ad nauseum. It's boring, routine, reflex now. But I still practice it. Caution, right? Let me tell you more...

One of my favorite truths: Paranoia will keep you alive.

The "MEDIA" showed up at the AZ SHOOT. I left. Paranoid or cautious?
