New? I've been going to Angeles since 1993 on a frequent basis; surely not new, and I would never do anything so dumb as leave my guns unattended; I don't think it's paranoid at all. Especially on handguns. And it doesn't even have to do with theft; idiots mosey up and start fondling it, such as on an obscure rifle they've just GOT to put their mitts on - their eyes alone aren't enough. And I never use the backtables except for when going through gear or leaving something of no value.
Unless I were at the range by myself (which has actually happened a couple of times during the week, on rainy days) guns are always within my reach, never left unattended
Your guns, your responsibility, and they aren't cheap the last time I checked.
