Emotional Attachment (Fanboyism) to Firearms is Toxic

Believing you’re better at shooting because you bought a particular firearm instead of a different firearm is toxic to the firearms community.

Too often people get emotionally attached to their firearms, ammunition, or firearms accessories. These types of people will look down on other people in the firearms community because they bought a different gun or use a different caliber. That kind of thinking is toxic to the firearms community and divides us.

This kind of emotional attachment and feeling of superiority because you bought one thing instead of a different thing is completely pointless! Skill is more important than gear, but people seem to think they are better at “guns” because they bought a particular gun. Buying gear doesn’t buy skill.

We need to cut this toxicity out of the community and unite against the anti-gun movement.
