Re: What’s with the gun community

For me and my friends its just a friendly rivalry. Kind of like the old Chevy vs Ford thing or your team vs my team. In reality I don't actually hate the gun someone else is carrying and I could care less the make of vehicle. It just makes things more interesting when theres a little rivalry.

On the forums though as well as other internet pages such as YouTube or Reddit I have seen what you are talking about. I think you can generally boil it down to one of three categorys.

1. The person genuinely believes that they have the best carry firearm and they will list all the reasons why it is superior to all other firearms and why you need to buy one. I once got into a pretty explicit argument with this kid trying to tell me the Beretta 92 is the greatest handgun ever made and he referenced so many branches and agencies that use/used them and tried telling me I've obviously never handled one even though I owned two at the time. They preach their "gospel" loud and proud as if it were true. Its like C.S Lewis said, "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals."

2. They are ignorant and either believe we all are the same or they have little experience and believe they are "good" shots when they never have actually seen good. They believe all of us have the same income the same health the same strengths etc.

3. The trolls and the ones joking. Some of these people just gets kicks out of making people mad and getting under your skin the other half in this category I believe are just teasing as my friends and I do with each other. Just a friendly rivalry.

Whatever group or category they fit in it shouldn't bother you. I understand there will always be that small part of us that desires acceptance and approval but we shouldn't let it get to us. Who are they right? Just humans like you and I. As my people say easy come easy go friend.
