    I had someone follow me from the gun range once. I am sure of it, I made a sudden turn into a shopping center and he still followed me there. I went into a store and he waited outside for a while. I went outside and just stood there staring at him, and he just took off. I did not have my permit then.

    I remember he was just hanging around the gun store looking behind the glass at people shooting, never look at displays or used the range. I believe he just follows people to wait for a chance to steal a gun from a car or your house later. I don't believe it had anything to do with gangs, just a thief. I grew up in an environment where I learned very early on to be aware of my surroundings. This kind of thing does happen.

    Whenever I get something like this, the first thing I do is check Snopes but I also check a site called "Truth or Fiction" (TruthOrFiction.com-Is that forwarded email Truth or Fiction? Research into stories, scams, hoaxes, myths, and urban legends on the Internet). I guess both could be wrong but at least its a 2nd reference. As to advertizing, when I raced a motorcycle I carried it in a little 12' enclosed trailer. Most of the races were out of town over weekends which meant the trailer was unattended at night sometimes. Rather than plastering the outside of the trailer with sponsors' names and anything else that would indicate what was inside the trailer, I had a sign that said "Franks Septic Service". Never had an attempted theft. Go figure...

    My concern is that spreading such a rumor would then motivate an actual criminal to do something like this. I'm from Canada, and a remarkable number of our street guns are non-functional (and a decent fraction don't have bullets, to boot.), and so the street value of a working gun would be quite high.
    You have guns you KNOW don't work? What's that about?

    Be careful about giving "snopes" a lot of credibility.

    I saw they had an "incident" which I was present, and they said it never happened, and this & that were all false.

    I contacted them, told them I was "there" , what occurred, and not only was the information correct, but there was a lot more too it. I also gave them several people and even a newspaper article they could verify it.

    They responded telling me I was "wrong" ...... and to basically go to hell.
