Skiing Christmas Tradition

While we were talking about Christmas traditions, there was one that caught my attention. The main man himself told us about a tradition that they do in his family about taking his children skiing on Christmas day.

To quote himself, his tradition is "A form of torture that we love and look forward to." When he was asked to explain, he pointed out that since children have a lot of candy and sweets on Christmas day, they don't really want to go out into the cold and go down a mountain but they do it anyway. As for the parents, having a child hyped up on sugar running around and then to take them on top of a mountain and have them run around up there can be very tiring. At least they all sleep good that night.

Christmas Lights Tradition

We were talking about our favorite Christmas traditions here at the office and one of the ones that we talked about was driving around the neighborhood to look at all of the Christmas lights. 

The way they would do it is they would all pile into the car and then go to their favorite spots to see if they did anything new this year. Another co-worker said that their family bundled up in the bed of the truck with some hot chocolate and lots of blankets and drove around the neighborhood that way so that they could swivel their heads around and get a full 360 degree view. Either way, it is super fun to look at all of the bright lights that people like to decorate with and even better to spend the time with your friends and family, no matter how cold it is.

6.5 Creedmoor Giveaway

My wife finally found me and she went berserk,
For shooting Rudolf she thought I was a real jerk.
Scolded me good, with her hands on hips pose,
We would get no gifts from Santa no shoes no guns no clothes.
My explanation about the scene to her seemed superficial,
That a deer would be sighting me with a red laser-guided missile.
Totally furious and completely filled with spite,
Eating Rudolph for Christmas dinner she agreed tasted just right.

Ugly Christmas Sweaters

A fun Christmas tradition that has been observed is that of the ugly Christmas sweaters. Those sweaters that you just want to hide or burn upon glancing on them. Due to the tradition of having an ugly Christmas sweater contest at Christmas parties has led to these monstrosities being kept alive. 

Out of all of the traditions around the Christmas time, this one seems to be one that puts people in the most cheer. It mixes being silly with being competitive and, honestly, it tends to be a good mix especially if you have a large group. So, stay warm out there guys and stay silly.

Christmas Carol Anniversary

The Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens is probably the second most well known Christmas story. It has had many adaptations of the original story, but the theme still rings true about the true meaning of Christmas. 

It is easy to get wrapped up in the idea that everyone has to have the perfect gift and that Christmas is all about getting things and parties and pretty lights. Well, much like Mr. Scrooge unwillingly did, it is important to take a moment and step back from all of the hustle and focus on what Christmas really means. Spending time with loved ones and making memories that will last for generations to come. So, just like this classic tale written 176 years ago, take a breath and just enjoy the season.

Poly80 Glock Giveaway And New Caliber

Skinning Rudolf was all kinds of smelly,
To drink we would have apple Martinelli.
I needed a recipe so I wandered to the bookshelf,
On the naughty list forever I should indulge myself.
My disappointment was real a few tears I did shed,
My taxidermist I must call to mount Rudolf’s head

Rise Armament Trigger Giveaway

Because I shot Rudolf Santa was now my adversary,
What to do with Rudolf I thought culinary.
I grabbed Rudolf’s hind legs and towards my house I did tow,
Christmas dinner would be venison and baked potato.
I found my skinning knife and began to unsheathe,
For dessert Better Than Whatever Cake sprinkled with Heath.

Magazine Giveaway

After a few deep breathes I began to calm down,
Outside I ventured to see what I shot down.
Across my lawn I trekked the snow crunched underfoot,
The deer did not move where it fell it stayed put.
My hand came to my forehead where it did smack,
My doctor I must call to get prescribed Prozac.

In split second the rest of the creatures launched to the sky,
I knew that instant I was now a bad guy.

On the naughty list forever due to my Christmas Eve Goof.

What happened next will forever cause me shame,
I calmed my breathing to take better aim.
The next event will make more infamous than Nixon,
I tested my magazine to ensure it was clicked in.
As I slacked the trigger forgetting the day was my downfall,
My gun recoiled and the deer dropped like the New Year’s Eve ball.

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.

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!

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.
