    My name is Zach.

    Non-mil, non-LE. Just a civilian that works in IT. I enjoy gaming, shooting, wine, scotch/bourbon/whisky, cigars, and hanging out with my wife, daughter, pets, and other family.

    I'm here to be a student and learn as much as I can. If I happen to help someone in the process I'll count that as a win too.

    Hi, I'm Ryan.

    Came here from following the P&S Modcasts (Please keep the Gun Nerds episodes coming!). I'm a mechanical engineer and a longtime student of the gun with a lot to still learn (grew up watching Dr. Atwater on History Channel and it was downhill from there). I've only been shooting for the last 12-13 years, been interested in firearms for probably twice that. I've shot a lot of competition and am looking to get more into good training to help me both as a shooter and as an engineer so all of you end users don't take our names in vain. :)

    In the interest of full disclosure, I am currently working in the firearms industry (9 years as a designer and a production engineer). I've also done freelance consulting and contracting work (wielding Solid Works/Solid Edge, not that kind of contracting) within the industry recently as well. As such anything posted here is strictly me speaking for me and not for any of my employers (past or present).

    Rich, 16 years .mil 8 Active and 8 Reserve. 6 deployments, currently on my sixth one. I work as a fed in Acquisitions at DHS. Bored with the job and looking for something new. Each deployment makes me feel civilians at my job stress for no reason.

    I enjoy camping, shooting, wine, rum, whisky, bacon, and family.

    Eric, new here but not new to forums. I've heard that this is the place, but I've heard that about other forums but all have fell victim to over moderation and derp.

    Marine Corps veteran, 21 years active law enforcement, current department rangemaster for a small municipal department in southwest Ohio. OPOTA Firearms Instructor and Rangemaster (Givens) certified firearms instructor. I take the study defensive pistol craft very seriously and hope to benefit from the collective knowledge of this group.

    Referred here because of the Roland Special thread. Going to be a lurker for the most part.

    See ya'll around. Oh, and happy (soon-to-be) Independence day!

    Nate, 10 years in MN Guard with a deployment to Kuwait/Iraq as a gunner on a convoy security team as a 91F. I reclassed to 19D recently, but civilian side I am still a small arms repairer as a tech and I've been trying to change the way the state does marksmanship from that role. It's a slow process but that's why I'm here now.

    Jake@OPFW Newbie

    Jake. 12ish years on active duty and still counting. One long trip to Iraq, two shorter ones to Afghanistan, one brief staff stint in Germany, and plenty more down the road in parts unknown. I've spent my entire career here at FBNC with the outlook being both grim and slim to go elsewhere. Long time firearms and hunting supporter, but I got into competition a little less than two years ago. I've been hooked since to the point of obsession. I come to the main site and listen to the YouTube broadcasts for training insight, confirmation of beliefs, that sort of thing. Also, recently started developing my own website. To say it is in its infancy is an understatement. Fetal stages is more accurate. I hope to contribute some valuable information as well as learn from some of the old-heads.
