Well, his neigbors in Reno didn't consider him all that friendly
FBI reports there are many significant leads around the world with many flights taken by more than one person all over the world. Possibly, and this is just my opinion, many of Paddocks gambling trips could have been a cover for arms deals and terrorist connections. Was he gunrunner who sold guns to jihadists?

Another idea…. Conspiracy level
Recall the alleged killer of MLK, James Earl Ray. He claimed a guy named Raul set him up by telling him to buy a gun, get a hotel room, do this and do that, all just to set him up as a patsy.
This case may be similar on a higher level. Is it possible some sinister secret cabal could have got this guy to buy these guns and tell him: Okay get in that hotel we'll be there.
Any thing could have happened from there
There’s just no rational reason or even irrational reason given yet for this guys actions

Well the 200+ reports, I don't personally find unsual, especially for a man as wealthy as he seemed to be and his brother claims he was. Any cash transaction over 10k to my knowledge legally has to be documented and reported.
Unfortunately, they don't differentiate between the legally mandated financial transaction reports, and the suspicious activity reports. They don't even explain what might constitute such suspicious activity. I think that's what we need to know more about before we can come to any conclusions one way or another.

Wendy Miller from Cooroy, on the Sunshine Coast, was also caught up in the attack.
She was at a bar in the nearby Luxor Hotel with her husband when she saw what she described as a “man of interest” run by.
“We managed to make our way back to our room…” she told The Courier-Mail.
“We are in lock down.
“Our door is dead locked and a chair against the door.”
Ms Miller said the man sprinted through her hotel after coming off an escalator from the Mandalay Bay.
“The man that they [security] were chasing was wearing a security jacket like them,” she said.

Except for the fact he worked for the Federal government, including the DoD.
Do you know what kind of background checks would be performed for an Auditor for the DoD? What kind of security clearance would be needed?
Some days it's tough just gettin' up
Throwin' on these boots and makin' that climb
Some days I'd rather be a no-show lay-low 'fore I go outta my mind.
