I'm not normally a paranoid person but today i was woken up by the doorbell. I'm the only one home, and my room's window is right at the entrance of the house, so i can look out and see who's there. So i look out and its someone i've never seen before, thuggish looking, so i think, ok...they're trying to sell something. But nothing in his hands. Then he just starts walking away right into the middle of the street and walks down the street the whole time looking at the other homes around me. so that gets me a little paranoid and i do what i probably should have done a while ago and load a gun with self defense rounds and put it in my nightstand. now for the questions. 1. am i being paranoid, or am i justifiably protecting my home? 2. do the other gun owners on here keep a loaded weapon in their homes? 3. if so, where do you keep yours? sorry for long thread. to make up for it, here are pics of the two guns i've loaded. and didnt load this one, but i figured id show it off anyways.
