Our First Shout-outs

Sierra Bullets

Slowly but surely, Regular Guy Guns is getting some industry traction. All things considered, as it’s a lightweight one-man blog, I’m quite thrilled at the progress…

Last week, the marketing people at Sierra Bullets reached out to me, as they loved an image I posted on the RGG Instagram feed, featuring a 300 BLK build I did, along with some Silencerco ammunition loaded up with some Sierra Match King .308 projectiles.

After a little back-and-forth on IG, I ended up providing them with a higher-resolution version, which they then utilized as the cover photo for their Facebook page. They’re sending over some projectiles, which should arrive this week. While this isn’t an endorsement or a sponsorship, I’m always happy to receive free stuff. I’ll be doing some fun macrophotography with the items when they get here. Thank you Sierra Bullets!

The second “industry surprise” came from none other than Daniel Defense. A few weeks ago, I reached out to them with a link to my review of their DD Magazine. I didn’t expect a response, but they were nice enough to send me a handwritten thank-you card, along with a morale patch, some DD window stickers, and a 16th Anniversary challenge coin.

This reinforces my earlier analysis of the firearms industry taking to the social media world with a purpose. Both Sierra Bullets & Daniel Defense are definitely on their social game, and it shows. Outreach to the younger generation who lives on social media is critical, and both companies are doing an excellent job. If we’re to preserve our natural rights and freedoms, we’ve got to be on top of the social game…

And I couldn’t have done it without my small and growing readership. Thanks, guys…
