Am I being paranoid?

I was at Dickís tonight stocking up on shotgun ammo. So the cashier starts asking why Iím buying so much ammo. I just tell him itís because itís cheap. Which it was. Then he starts asking me about what guns I own. I tell him I own a Remington shotgun. Then he says is that it? And I say yes. Because Iím a Scorecard member he has access to my name and address. So should I be worried or am I being paranoid?

You should always be worried giving a stranger any personal information not relevant to the transaction. Maybe a little paranoid too as the guy was probably just making idle chit-chat, but a little paranoia could save you a lot of heartache down the road. Better safe than sorry these days.

It's not paranoia when they're really after you.

I generally don't provide firearm info to strangers ... except you guys ... and those are all at the bottom of the Chesapeake anyway.

You might offer something generic or esoteric. "Eh, I have my grandfather's old 22 he bought from the Sears catalog back in the day, but I really like my GAU-8."

Not familiar with that one? Yeah, I don't shoot that one often because the ammunition is expensive.

Doesn't sound like anything to worry about to me from what I've read

PARANOID in the extreme IMO.

If you had been buying a Redskins sweatshirt he probably would have asked what you thought of Dan Snyder, or the Skins chances next year, or how long have you been a fan.

Seriously ? Report him for trying to have a conversation and make a connection with a customer ? That's a good way to make someone not give a crap about their job, become surly sullen robot, and strive to do just the absolute bare minimum.

I'd give my left nut to find a cashier that does a little more than simply take my money and slap my change in my hand.
