    Helped out a newbie today

    I was at my local Costco picking up a few (ya, right) things. As I was in line, the cashier was talking to the boxer asking him where she could learn to shoot. I couldn't believe I was hearing this, so I just listened for a few more moments to make sure what I was hearing was really pertaining to shooting. The guy knew nothing. I then chimed in with the local gun club.

    I asked what she wanted to shoot. She said that she didn't want to shoot anybody. She said her husband just died and she wanted a way to protect herself.

    I gave her the name of a local shooting school and referred her to this forum. She was very thankful. Not sure of her background, but I hope she finds what she is looking for.

    Maybe If we recruit two people and they recruit two people we could have the anti's licked in about 10 years.

    That cashier is suddenly by herself, and now she does need an equalizer...you pointed her in the right direction.
    You need to follow up with her on your next visit.
