Scope Super Sale

Posted by Jordan on 6/11/2019 to General

We have some amazing deals on scopes right now.  One of our suppliers called us with an amazing "take all" deal on some awesome scopes.  We have a variety of powers available from indoor range to the next zip code and everything in between.  

We acquired these right before we found out we had to move out of our warehouse.  So we decided (since the marketing department is allergic to manual labor) to do a crazy blowout sale on them.  There is nothing wrong with these, they come from a very reputable factory, the supplier decided they would rather have them on our shelves rather than their shelves is all.  

So if you have an optic on your wish list at these prices you can't afford to not pick one up.

Living On The Edge With DTT

Posted by Karri on 6/10/2019 to General

What is the bravest thing you've ever done? Served in the military? Skydiving? Some may say having children is the bravest thing you've ever done while others may say buying a gun and not telling your wife is the bravest.

A great mentor once told me that the line between dangerous and stupid is a very fine line. What you consider living on the edge style fun, others may look at as you being reckless. Well, I say live on the wild side and buy yourself an upper from Delta Team Tactical. After all, what is more thrilling than putting a brand new upper together and putting that first round through it at the range?

Feel free to check out our moving sale by clicking on the link.

Nickel Boron As A Shooting Status Symbol?

Posted by Jordan on 6/1/2019 to General

To a shooter, nickel boron is the equivalent of gold to rap artists.  It is the metal of choice and the status symbol of bling. Like gold, nickel boron has some other advantages other than just looking cool in your gun. Nickel boron is far more restraint to wear and tear than other finishes. So, whether it is a BCG or a barrel extension, the friction caused by parts moving across one another will wear much better on nickel boron products.  

For you, hockey players (or figure skaters, no judgment from here #toepick) having nickel boron products in your gun is the equivalent of hitting the ice right after the Zamboni has just resurfaced the ice.  We all know ice is smoother than other surfaces but, after the Z does its job, it is smooth as silk. So this brings us to our ELD Performance Alpha Series Barrels. These are barrels that we have been having made for us that have nickel boron barrel extensions. We just got in a 6.5 Creedmoor who is joining the ELD Alpha Series, and Gallardo has one of these barrels (shameless product plug).

We will continue our discussion of nickel boron advantages in a future post.

That Guy Pt. 2

Posted by Jordan on 5/30/2019 to AR-15

Continuing on our conversation of not being “that guy” from yesterday's post, I have witnessed where a large group of people turn into “that guy.” Working in e-commerce and using the internet to promote and ask questions about our company browse a fair amount of discussion forums and online groups that pertain to AR-15’s.  Quite a few of these groups it seems to be a member you need to be “that guy.”

To me, this is unfortunate on many levels.  On a personal level, I don’t like participating in groups with people like that, even if I set aside my professional interests.  Professionally that so many of the discussion groups have a massive elitist attitude that they don’t seem willing to help out the new guys.  And finally, on a sociological level, “that guy” can give someone who is ignorant seeking information a bad taste for the sport. Largely as second amendment enthusiasts we are worried about the idea of our gun rights being stripped away.  One of the ways we can combat this is through education and helping new blood come into the sport/hobby. If we are “that guy,” we are going to chase people away and a lot of those impressionable individuals may turn against us and threaten our rights.  So when you interact in person and online, think of the bigger picture so you don’t become “that guy.”

That Guy

Posted by Jordan on 5/29/2019 to General

A few years ago a buddy of mine wrote an article for a wakeboarding magazine titled “Don’t Be That Guy.”  If you are unfamiliar with wakeboarding, picture waterskiing standing sideways. The premise of the article was don’t be the guy that is too cool for school on the dock and hassling other riders because they don’t have the newest board, lifejacket, or the right pair of board shorts. 

The whole purpose of the sport is to have fun, and if you have a new or newer rider that can have a negative impact on them staying with the sport or not in the future.  While the article was full of satire, and largely made fun of the guys who are “that guy,” it was an article that left an impression on me, asking myself am I ever “that guy?”
