Opposites

Everything has an opposite; Day and night, cold and hot, rifle and pistol, etc. Some people say that to start shooting, you need to start with a pistol since they are easier to handle for new shooters. Others say that a rifle is easier since you don't have to worry about holding the pistol just right so that the slide doesn't tear your hand up. Honestly, it depends on what you feel most comfortable with. 


Not sure what to start with? Well, that would depend on your attitude. Want to get a feel for the smaller stuff and work your way up? No problem, start with a smaller caliber like a .22 or 9MM. Want to get it over with and work your way down? Start with a 12 gauge like I did. It will hurt but makes the smaller stuff seem so much easier to handle. 


No matter what you decide, remember that there is no wrong answer. Rifle or pistol, they both are really fun to shoot. We have a variety of both rifle AR's and pistol AR's here at Delta for insanely low prices. Make sure to check them out.

That Guy Pt. 2

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

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?”
