Former USMC 0311, one uneventful pump to Helmand Province. Always thought the training we got was very poor when it came to individual employment of weapons. Stockmaker for give years, currently working and studying in the supply chain management field.

Been following various P&S pages and personalities on Facebook for a while, and just started listening to the podcast. The wealth of information has been truly staggering, and has caused me to take a serious look at my shortcomings. Instead of dropping money on more gear, I decided to invest in a Mantis X3 and a Dry Fire Mag, and really work on improving my skills with what I have.
 
Hey all, Patrick here - Civ, Technical consultant. Been into firearms as long as I can recall, most of friends and family are LEO or Military. This past year started to get serious about training and learning.

Excited to learn new things and absorb knowledge here.
 
I'm Andy from Utah I enjoy target shooting, hunting, and all things having to do with animals, nature, wildlife, and the great outdoors in all the amazing areas in my awesome home state and beyond.

I spent a couple years in the arms industry on the product management and marketing side of manufacturing and distribution where learned a lot listening to prior and current LE and military guys about what they expect and hope for out of their tools and then trying to make those expectations and hopes into reality. I really enjoyed that work and I miss being around it. I switched gears on my vocational career when I started a business offering my services to the public as a professional dog obedience trainer and instructor so I am not as close to that industry as I once was but I still try to pay attention to what's going on there.

A couple weeks ago I bought some gear from a local guy DJ who turned me on to the site and community. I am hoping to learn from folks here to improve my practice habits and skills as well as keep my ear to the ground on local training offerings and stay current on the state of the arms industry. I miss being around that stuff every day so I am trying to be more deliberate about practicing and competing that way I don't end up sloppy or behind the times.
 
Atticus. Former engineering student, big box store gun counter employee, one-time bottom tier 3 gun shooter, and a guy who’s had his door kicked in while he was home. Engineering wasn’t the career path for me, but I like using the things it taught me to analyze the real world medical emergencies and defensive shootings that I learn about to improve my skills and inform my decisions.
