    So today I'm at the house by myself and I decide to take a long shower because I was tired. I come out of the shower and I walk to my bedroom and I'm about to open the door to my bedroom that is at the top of the stairs when I look down the stairs and see that the door going into the garage is wide open. I kinda just froze in place for a second, looked around, retraced my steps back down the hall to where my FNP9 was at, grabbed it and slowly cleared the house one room at a time.

    Think I overreacted or no?


    Oh, and turns out what I *THINK* happened was that the wind created some sort of pressure inside the garage and pushed the door going into the house open. I must not have closed it tightly when I came in last. We had around 40 mph wind gusts today I think.

    Personally i wouldnt have cleared all the rooms. Just the up stairs. And just waited and listened no point of me going and looking for someone who might also have a gun.. but what you did is just fine i assume

    thats happens in my apartment all of the time. my wife wont close the door all of the way and when someone else opens or closes their doors the pressure in the hallway opens or slams shut our door.

    Kinda funny if you did a tactical room clearing with pistol drawn, I'd probably laugh then. I probably would've gotten my gun, gotten dressed, listened for anything out of the ordinary, and then walked around the house with the pistol at my side quietly.

    But I live in a pretty crime-free area.

    The question isn't "Am I paranoid?," it's "Am I paranoid enough?"

    Not at all...I have done the same thing before, but when I was sleeping my little Shihtzu dog was barking like crazy. I got scared and pulled it out and walked around the house.
    Ended up my friend was trying to scare me because I lwas home alone as my parents were in the Philippines. He spend the night the day before and left a window unlocked and partially open for this. I was scared to death as when I saw someone and I didnt know it was them at first. Let us just say they were lucky. When I figured out who it was I pulled out the bb guns and they were not happy with the result. I hid behind as they started creeping in the house and they were screaming and ran away.
    I then made sure everything was locked and creaped out the back yard to the side of the house then movied to the front hiding behind the pickup. Stupid enough they were still out there thinking it was funny. I crawled out behind their car and jumped out shooting them more with the bb gun. They ran off and called being pissed except one said he had to take a dump so bad he almost just knocked the on the door before all this so he can go. So after this he called if he can take the dump here and of course I being pissed said no. They finally left.
    I being paranoid as this is like at 3am am still waiting in the living room watching for them. Then my neighbor starts his truck around 4:15ish again waking me up and causing me to be alert and now im not able to sleep. I also have to be at work at 7:30...

    Anyways I dont know why I told th at story but yeah...

    always remember......just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not really out to get you.
