You know the type. The people with obnoxious laughs, pushy pitches, and the ability to corner you at industry conferences and talk about themselves continuously for what seems like hours? The ones who clearly mean well, but their lack of etiquette can make you wish you hadn't even gone?

Last year I went through the Concealed Handgun License course in San Antonio, TX. During the shooting phase of the course I was paired up with a lovely lady who was in her late 70's and had some difficulties loading magazine so I loaded them all for her and for myself when it was my turn on the firing line.
