I think If you shoot enough it happens
Recently- I was at an out door range but the way there lines are set in relation to the cover overhead a short barreled pistol makes quite the reverb. Just yesterday I picked up my Taurus 709 Slim and a teen girl next to me was saying oww everytime I pulled the trigger. I checked to make sure brass wasn't hitting her, I decided to put it away. I didn't want to make the range a negative experience for her, sometimes consideration is also courtesy.
I have a remington 700 BDL in 7MM rem mag. it's not the biggest round in the world but the 360 degree porting 3 inches back the 26 inch barrel usually buys me plenty of space at the range.
