Peer Pressure In The Shooting Community

Kevin Felts political commentator

Didn’t you know, there is a new cartridge, and it beats everything else hands down. If you do not switch to the new cartridge, then you are just stupid.

Maybe not those exact words, but something like them, have been repeated for decades. Want an example? Look at the 40 S&W and Glock fanboy clubs. say a disparaging word about either, and members of the shooting community are quick to discredit, argue, or sling insults.

An example is an article I posted on AllOutdoor – Opinion: The 40 S&W Needs To Go Away.

From the time the 40 S&W was introduced I found the recoil excessive. People who know me personally probably remember me saying that since the 1990s. But when you post it in public, saying you do not like the 40 is worst than sacrilege. How dare someone say they do not like a high pressure round that has excessive recoil. Learning to shoot the 40 S&W is just a matter of training, right?

Nope!

After watching that first video, I said “yep, that is my Remington 1911 R1.”
