Stock Giveaway

I crept towards the ruckus without making a sound, 
to an upstairs window to get the high ground.
I beheld some tracks on the fresh new snow, 
then the moonlight silhouetted the creatures below. 
To my great astonishment, I began to fear, 
a red laser sight coming from a deer.
It was getting crazy and happening so quick, 
my safety selector my finger did flick.

First Giveaway

Twas the night before Christmas and all throughout the land, 
all the patriots were grateful their AR’s were not banned.
Their stocks are all collapsed too to fit in their safes, 
and they are wondering if descending a chimney Santa would chafe.
The patriots and their families were all tucked into bed, 
wondering if the new guns Santa would bring would be belt-fed?
With my Glock in my nightstand for an intruder I might cap, 
gives me peace of mind for a Christmas Eve nap.
When outside there came a great clamor, 
I grabbed my Creedmoor to investigate the matter.

Christmas Giveaway Announcement

We re-wrote the poem Twas the Night Before Christmas.  Similar to what we did last year with our 12 Days of DTT (we re-wrote 12 days of Christmas).  If you aren’t familiar with that check out our video HERE.  But that was last year, and this is this year, and we couldn’t re-run the same promotion we did, so we knocked off another form of traditional Christmas Content which you can check out HERE.  But like last year we are doing giveaways every day in association with the poem.  

Here are the rules/guidelines for the giveaways.

We have entered the place in time that has often been called the calm before the storm. That moment when everything seems to be at peace before something happens to send you into chaos.

DTT Delta Turkey Tips Part 3

For this installment of DTT (Delta’s Turkey Tips) I will be addressing the elephant in the room when cooking turkey; to inject or not to inject. If you missed yesterday's installment, click HERE to view it. If you are not familiar with this injecting meat, for a long cooking time, it is a common but highly debated practice. Essentially, you take a syringe and inject meat with liquid that contains additional flavors. Now full disclosure, I am not completely sold on injecting. I have done it before and I didn’t feel like it made the meat noticeably better. In some cases I am absolutely opposed to it. I personally feel injecting is used to compensate for someone’s lack of ability to cook meat correctly.  

I have a neighbor who injects beef stock into his brisket because he said his brisket was too dry and tough and injecting helped make it juicy and more flavorful. If there was ever a time that I exercised great restraint, it was at this moment when he confessed his meat cooking sin to me. Brisket doesn’t need this if done correctly, it is the ultimate smoking meat, and when done correctly it only needs salt and pepper. He then told me how he cooks his brisket, and he was cooking it way too high of temp, and not cooking it nearly long enough, so he compensated by injecting beef stock into the brisket. This is like putting on cologne to cover up the smoke smell when you told your wife you have stopped smoking.  

However, when you are dealing with white meat like pork and poultry, they are a bit more bland compared to beef, so adding additional flavors to them is not wrong. So, the easiest way to do this is don’t throw out your brine when you pull your bird out to cook and instead use it to fill up a syringe and inject your turkey with your brine solution. Now you can work up another solution and inject that into your bird as well. I was just being convenient, but the whole point is to add additional flavor to the turkey, so add whatever you like. This year I am cooking two turkeys as we have a large group, so one turkey I will inject and one i won’t and I will let you know my results from my A/B test on injecting.

Our promotion for the FREE DTT CLP is still in effect, all you have to do is put FREEDTTCLP in at checkout and we will send you a free bottle! You don't even have to have it in your cart, we will add it automatically if your order is $25 and over!

Procrastination

There was a huge procrastinator in my High School who would always wait until the absolute last minute to turn in work.

No more extensions, this is the final cut off date so be like that kid and make the most of it while you can and grab some items that maybe you were just watching while this sale lasts.

October is Here

It is officially the first day of the spooky season! This is by far my favorite season because the weather is nice and cool, bugs go back to where they belong, you can eat lots of candy for no reason, spooky movie marathons and so much more. The only thing that could be not liked is that it means that there is snow coming (unless you live in places where you don't normally get snow, congrats to you).

This is also a great season because it is the month of Halloween! The only acceptable night that you can go knock on people's doors and demand candy without getting into trouble. I find it fun to go to a popular trick-or-treating area and just watch people in their many different costumes walk around. It is fun to see how creative people can be. So, grab your hot chocolate and enjoy because the spooky season is just getting started!

DIY Projects and Custom Builds

A neighbor who observed some of my DIY projects asked me how I learned how to do these types of projects.  While I cannot point to one single event in my life, in the mosaic of my memories one of the things that stand out is skateboarding.  Now you may be wondering how 7 layers of laminated maple veneer capped in adhesive sandpaper have anything to do with DIY projects? I started skateboarding in 1994, this is the genesis of the second wave of skateboarding, the one that eventually spawned the X-Games.  Well in the mid to late ’90s there were very few skateparks dotting our public parks landscapes. So shopping centers, business complexes, and public parks became makeshift skateparks for skaters.


Well being 12 and living more than 3 miles from the nearest of any of the above-mentioned venues my friends I decided to retrofit one of our backyards into our own private skatepark.  Ben’s house was nominated because he had a full-size basketball court and parents who were home the least. We went to work scavenging wood from construction site scrap piles, pulling pallets out of dumpsters, and using our parents' power tools without permission.  Looking back now with the skills and resources that were available to us from ages 12-15 (pre-driving age) we were able to build a pretty fantastic skateboard landscape. This is one of those influential events that started DIY for me, which ultimately lead me to build AR’s.  


What started you on the road to building custom AR’s?  Comment below.

Garfield Day And Not The President

When did we decide we needed all these half baked holidays? Some of these featured days are just obnoxious, like National Donut Day or National Bacon Day... wait, those are bad examples.  However, some holidays are just ridiculous.  I was informed that yesterday was National Garfield Day. Not the President Garfield, (that would make too much sense) but the cartoon cat Garfield.  Maybe there are some big Garfield fans reading this that will be super angry with me, but he is just a cartoon. Garfield has no ability to feel therefore he has no ability to know about a day honoring him.  

How do you celebrate National Garfield Day anyways?  Eat lasagna and terrorize dogs?  This day makes no sense to me at all.  But in a universe that is completely fluid and nonsensical, one thing that does remain constant is that Delta Team Tactical will always have some amazing deals.

What other special days do you find ridiculous?  Comment below.

Gun Improvement

One of the best shows of all time, in my opinion, is Home Improvement.  This show featured male bravado’s poster boy Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor, played by Tim Allen (that’s the voice of Buzz Lightyear for the millennials reading this).  Tim hosts a show called Tool Time where they go extremely overboard on tool related projects, insisting on “more power.”  

Something that Tim and I have in common is a love for tools.  Tools are used to both fix and build things, ultimately making the world a better place.  Maybe that is why so many politicians are tools (pun intended).  As I have mentioned before we have been working hard re-categorizing the website and trying to improve overall customer experience by improving navigation, one of these completed categories is the Tool category.  

Well in the spirit of Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor we are having a sale on tools because we are proud of our new tool category.  Simply click on the Home Improvement inspired graphic down below to browse those tools.

National Splurge Day...DTT Style

Today is National Splurge Day. Being defined as indulging oneself in some luxury, especially a costly one. This got me thinking about how many different things there are to splurge on in life. There is nothing wrong with splurging, as long as it is kept in check by your wallet or your significant other.

I asked around and found that the most common thing to splurge on is definitely food. From sushi to steak, food is always something people use, so why not treat yourself from time to time? Another thing people said was ammo. It seems that when you go shopping, even window shopping, for gun stuff like holsters or magazines or even a new gun itself, people always like to stop by the ammo area to pick up a few boxes.

So, since today is splurge day here at Delta Team Tactical, why not binge a little bit as you check out our amazing sales.

The Best Of 6/10/19-6/16/19

I have shared this in the past, but sometimes it bears repeating. Every Monday morning I run a sales report, and we look over that sales report to see what the trends are for the last week to see what is selling.  We then take that information and compile the top 10 best selling products that we still have inventory left into Monday’s email newsletter.


Due to our moving sale and the great blowout deals, the best selling deals for this week was impossible to narrow down to a top ten (the same sale is enabling the marketing department to avoid manual labor).  So this week we have a much larger field of products as a result. On behalf of Delta Team Tactical, we thank you for this and doing business with us. We genuinely appreciate each and every one of you who purchases from us, shares our content or reads these blog posts we write.  


As a member of the marketing team, we also offer our most sincere thanks for helping us avoid lifting and moving heavy objects. For this, our gratitude knows no bounds.

Father's Day, BBQ, and AR Builds

It’s Father’s Day, a day for us dad’s to be spoiled by our loved ones by BBQing dinner for your family and also your wife’s dad, and in my case her 5 brothers also.  Yes, it is true, I am in charge of Father’s Day family dinner, and because I don’t want dinner to suck I am smoking a brisket. Brisket is the thing I make better than anything else.  Yes better than my AR builds, woodworking projects, and even better than the children I made that earned me the title of Father. Side note: I have great kids, my brisket is just that good.  


So in a departure from our tradition drivel of shooting, guns, and shameless product plugs I decided to share my fan favorite brisket recipe.  Brisket is something that doesn’t and shouldn’t be overcomplicated, my rub couldn’t be more simple two parts coarse black pepper one part kosher salt.  That's it, brisket doesn’t need anything else, it stands on its own four feet (cow pun intended). One of the mistakes I see people make is not trimming the brisket enough, you want to leave about 1/4” fat cap on the brisket, too much and it will be greasy, too little and it will have too dry of consistency.  


For the fuel I prefer oak, this can be done with wood, charcoal, or pellets.  I cook it at around 225 degrees for 7-8 hours (overnight) then I wrap it tightly in foil and throw it in the oven at 200 degrees for another 8 hours.  Yes, 16 hours is what I cook my brisket for. So happy Father’s Day to all you dad’s out there. We hope your family treats you right.

Twist Rates

A common question that I have come across quite a bit is what is the twist rate in a barrel? what twist rate works with what grains the best?


What is a twist rate and why is it important? A twist rate on a barrel determines how many inches it takes the bullet to make one full rotation before it exits the barrel. As an example, if you have a barrel with a 1-9 twist rate, then the bullet makes one full rotation every 9 inches of your barrel. Why should I care about what twist rate I get? Well, different weights of bullets perform differently depending on what your twist rate it. You want a lower twist rate for the heavier bullet and vice versa.


What twist rate is best for my ammo? I found this helpful list to assist you in such a decision; 40-grain ammo is best for a 1:12, 55-grain ammo is best for a 1-9 twist barrel. 1-7 or 1-8 have the best results with 62-grain and 77-grain ammo. Last but not least, 1-7 is best for 80-grain ammo. Keep this in mind as you shop our wonderful deals at Delta Team Tactical.

Adulting Is Hard

The imagination is a wonderful thing. From when you were a child playing in the streets to being an adult and imagining how in the world you will fit all your guns into your safe. Something that I hear children tell me is that they can't wait to be older so that they can make their own decisions and they don't have to listen to anyone. Some adults I know wish they could be younger so they don't have to deal with adulting.


Honestly, you can have fun at any age. When you are a kid, you can go outside in the sunshine whenever you want and play street hockey then later at night catch fireflies and play night games. As an adult though, you can go on drives on backroads just to see where they take you. You can go stargazing at night or even try a new restaurant. Growing up is not a bad thing, as long as you remember to have fun.

Guns As Art?

Recently I wrote about attending the Rat Fink Reunion car show.  I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the rat rods used firearms decor. Quite a few used dummy ammo cartridges as accent pieces. A few had faux Gatling Guns as accessories.  Probably my favorite was the shotgun pistol grip as a functioning gear shift lever.


While I was genuinely pleased with the mashup of two of my favorite interests rolled into one (cars and guns for those who didn’t pick that up), I was utterly flabbergasted at how well the gun accents were received by the public (granted Manti, UT is NOT San Francisco).  We live in a day and age where bringing guns into the mainstream is a social faux pas. But we also live in a day and age where art is praised. So maybe we stumbled on the secret of having guns not be demonized is by turning them into works of art. If guns are art, and the anti-gun community loves art, will they then embrace guns?  


So to test this hypothesis I am planning out an automotive-themed AR build to see if the hoity-toity art community will embrace my work of art.

Rat Fink Forever

A few weeks ago I attended the Rat Fink Reunion car show.  If you are unfamiliar with Rat Fink he is a big ugly green rat that drinks oil and gas and drives hot rods and muscle cars.  The artist who created Rat Fink, Ed “Big Daddy” Roth, is credited with being a big pioneer in the hot rod/kustom car movement (yes I spelled kustom correct), as well as being one of the first people ever to screen print on T-shirts is on his long list of accomplishments.  


Roth looked at the car as his canvas whether he was doing a pinstripe job to building a completely original one-off that would be turned into a plastic model for kids to build with that glue that they loved.  As I was walking around the car show I couldn’t help but find comparisons to Cerokoted and other esthetically modified guns. Did these 2A artists draw some of their inspiration from “Big Daddy” in using a gun as their canvas as he did the car?


For any of you out there turning their guns into works of art and leave a comment below if you are familiar with Ed Roth, Rat Fink, and/or where you draw your inspiration from.

Scope Super Sale

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

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.

Budget Builds

I had this girlfriend in college that was super high maintenance.  Fortunately for her, she both came from money and had graduated and landed a really good job.  Unfortunately for me, I was a fulltime student with part-time employment. The semester that we dated was one of the most expensive of my life.  We had a great time, we also did some lame things like go to the ballet (first and last time for me).


One thing that dawned on me after we broke up and observed the negative balance in my bank account, is while dating her I forgot to budget money to live on, you know things like the essentials: rent, gas, food, ammo and range time.  This brings me to building or buying AR's. I have seen guys go too big on their weapon choice that they forget to save some money for the other essential stuff involved in shooting like ammo, optics, range time, buying flowers for their wife, etc.  Therefore they are unable to shoot the new gun they have recently purchased or built.


So to make matters easier on your wallet we are having a special sale on budget builds today.  We have a larger selection than we ever have on uppers less than $155.

Stress Relievers And More!

Flipping through news feeds, whether it is on your phone or on the television is enough to make someone go insane. With all the stress that comes with keeping up with current events, it is important to know how to stay calm and get your blood pressure back down. 


There are many ways to relieve stress. For instance, taking a nap can help. It is literally you turning your body off and back on again. Can’t get to a place that will allow you to lay down for a bit? Not an issue. Another great way to relieve stress is to go shooting. Something about the satisfaction of hearing the explosion, seeing your round pierce the target, and smelling the gunpowder burning helps some people keep their heart rate down. Or.. you can get one of those desk stress ball things. 


Another thing that can be stressful is moving, which is why we would rather sell everything rather than move it. Make sure to check out our super low prices in our moving sale by clicking on the fun GIF below.

Technology and Firearms

Technology is amazing. Looking back through history, it is amazing to see just how much technology has changed our lives. From indoor plumbing to electricity to construction to even the internet and cellphones, technology has touched every aspect of life and made it easier. 


The first recorded use of a firearm was in 1394. By the 1389’s, they were known all around Europe (can you imagine a pro-gun Europe?). The 1600s brought us the flintlock, the 1800s brought us the Gatling gun and the first AR rifle was brought to us by the mid-late 1900s. Thinking about technology, it is stunning to realize how far the gun industry has come from the first use. Combining guns with technology has created so many new opportunities such as going online to Delta Team Tactical and signing up for our text blasts to keep updated on the latest deals. It truly is the modern age when you can find what upper you would like and place the order from wherever you are… even in the bathroom.


Technology also has brought you this wonderful moving sale.

Moving Sale

So we are moving out of one of our warehouses.  When we learned that employees would need to help move the products, the marketing department decided we would rather sell the majority of the products instead of actually doing manual labor.  So we are trying to incentivize you, the customer, to help us with our move. We are going to be offering 1-2 insanely priced items per day. These items will also be featured in our moving sale category. This way it is a win-win, you get stuff at an insane price and the marketing department doesn’t have to soil our clothes and lift heavy things.

75th Anniversary of D-Day

Today is the 75th anniversary of one of the most well-known invasions in the history of the United States, D-Day. On this day, the allied forces invaded along the coast of Normandy to stop the German occupation of Europe. It is on days like that that we truly think about what freedom has cost and about the soldiers that have paid for it.

Men and women in the United States Armed Forces deserve to be celebrated whether they serve now or they served before. If you know a veteran or someone in the Armed Forces, make sure to thank them for their service on this day.
