    I may have turned a anti/skeptic into a believer today...

    He may not have been a full fledged anti, but he was leaning to that side. I was in Beloit earlier, (A crime ridden **** hole of a town), and was sitting in my truck working on a few things on my laptop and they pulled next to me and overheard his buddy tell him not to leave anything of value in the open as they exited his vehicle. I opened my door and told him people around here are quick to steal anything of value. He laughed, made a self defense comment about protecting his property, and re-entered his vehicle. I grabbed a OC pamplet, wrote down a couple websites, and walked over and chatted with him. I pointed out several scenarios that would benefit greatly from possessing a defensive firearm, including and most importantly, the protection of my family. After about 15-20 min, we wrapped up our convo and he said that I had made a lot of good, valid points and will look into the websites I wrote down with an open mind and said I may have changed his ways of looking at firearms for self defense!! I didn't catch his name, but hope to see him on here and if he does join, let's make him feel welcome...
