...is to allow yourself to become too skeptical of other gun owners and their experiences.
I have found myself guilty of that recently. I questioned the validity of a persons post in this very forum simply because it seemed a bit outlandish. I am not going to go as far as to say I believe the story itself but a couple people have PM's me and pretty much said "true or not, he is a good guy" so I feel I should apologize to Firepower! for my treatment of him.
I am still not a fan of outlandish scenarios being posted (true or not) due to how negatively so many people view such stories, but I should not have called his personal credibility into question.
Sorry if this is off topic.
