Things Break

I haven’t posted in awhile, it’s hard to remember to. Nobody has commented and there’s been no following to maintain for, yet. Hopefully there will be some participants to keep me writing for, until then this is kind of a personal journal, a place to record some thoughts and experience, and hopefully some wisdom. My insights may be of little consequence, but there might be someone that finds something helpful or interesting, sooner or later. So I’ll keep writing.
Today I feel it is appropriate to discuss the fact that – things break. We buy things and can grow very found of them and they can break. Often times airgunners like to fiddle and tinker and see how we can change things to work better or different. If you haven’t been in the sport long, you’ll soon find it may be hard to resist opening up that new airgun and tweaking the trigger or lubing this and smoothing that, but take this word of advise, things break. Little springs can go flying, screws can get stripped, etc etc. Until you are at a point that you feel comfortable to work on them and risk turning them into paperweights, as I occasionally do, enjoy the warranty and leave things alone. Do the regular external maintenance and have a nice thing last awhile. I say this from my point of view, I can’t ever leave things alone, and often get past the point of return. I’ve destroyed numerous air guns, changing this and doing that, and rarely am glad I did. I’ve wasted a lot of money with my curiosity. Yes, things break, and can sometimes easily be fixed, but, like they say, don’t fix what ain’t broke.
So that’s all I have to say for today, I recently had another of these “messed it up” scenarios, and thought I might save someone q nice airgun and a few bucks by letting you all know this. Don’t be like me, utilize the warranty! Thanks for reading, RifledDNA.


Speaking of….

So there is always a problem with the internet and social media that is sometimes hard to avoid, attitudes and arguments.
So speaking of mountains out of mole hills, its very easy to get into big messes of attitude while interacting with people on social media outlets, you’ve, most of the time, never met the person or persons, you can’t be sure of their intentions, though, sadly, they’re often all too clear, and neither party wants to back down when there is the separation provided by cyberspace. Arguments quickly escalate and become a contest of who can, in essence, be the meaner person.
Immaturity is a slick trap, and its all too easy to fall in.
The reality is this, no one ever wins, and in a contest of vulgarity, the victory is no winner at all. Its not hard to lash out, and its very hard to stay out if the vacuums of negativity, but knowing when to ignore things, or how to handle them maturely, is a greatly overlooked quality in society today, especially on the web.
There will be no recognition when you ignore a rude person, possibly even the opposite with more rudeness, but patting ourselves on the back should not be taken for granted. Why? Because it is our opinions of ourselves that matter, that guide our decisions, that determine our self worth, and help people decide their opinions of us. PSA over, lol, be happy people, shoot safe, and Let em Fly!
