I did 4 years as a Marine Corps armorer. I received training on structural and area security along with all the general marine training (anti terror, rifle qualifications, etc), some additial platoon level CQB training, MMG employment both mounted and dismounted, and completed the combat lifesaver course (read TCCC). I’ve conducted training for the usage of the M9, M4, M240, and M2(A1), and I spent time as the platoon training NCO.
I’m an EMT, NRA RSO and basic pistol instructor. I’ve taken CHE with Steve, received training from Archway Defense, I did BJJ for a time while I was stationed in Okinawa.
I’m also a voracious reader, specifically looking at leadership and violence. I’ve read books from Kyle Lamb, Tim Larkin, Steven Pressfield, Paul Howe, Dave Grossman, and Gavin de Becker just to name a few.
