I have an anxiety disorder and this will be my first con. I was fearing I might have to hide in the bathroom if I couldn't handle the atmosphere but BLESS WHOEVER THOUGHT OF THE QUIET ROOM (I was the one that asked about what it was earlier.) But this is the kindest most wonderful thing ever and I wanted to say thank you because it took me months to decide on actually going and now that it's getting closer, I was getting more and more nervous. This just made my night!
First of all, we want to commend your bravery for trying to move past your anxiety disorder and coming to our con! The Quiet Room will be clearly marked on the map (which will be in the program guide and online), but there should be other places around the building where you can take a quiet moment as well. The busiest part if the con will be 4th floor, so if you go downstairs you should be able to find a place to sit. But also, Quiet Room! Some of the smaller panel rooms are good for some downtime as well. If you need any help at the con, look for a Minion in green, or find our info booth at the top of the 4th floor south lobby. My team will be monitoring all our social media accounts, too, if you want to say hi. :)
We hope you have a great time, and don’t get too overwhelmed!
Yeah, ‘aim’ isn’t the word I use. I also was pointing it about 45-50 degrees up at the time because barrel discipline. You’d not really do anything useful with it free-standing, between the weight of the weapon and the recoil.
I suppose you might be able to shoot it from the hip, but that’d probably be deeply stupid. :D
