There are many ways to get the job done.  And the more option you bring to the table or the “Tools” in your “Toolbox” you have, the better you will be equipped to handle the job at hand.  I can’t begin to tell you (and I know other operators in the industry will back this up) how many jobs I have gotten based on my medical background.  Being a medic has gotten me past the secretary more often than my skills with PowerPoint (don’t get me wrong PowerPoint has its place too!).  Just keep in mind that the more you can bring to the job site the more you marketable you are.  And once you think you know it all or have ALL the qualifications, then it’s time to hang it up and retire because this industry is going to fly past you at a record pace.  Long story medium, the learning is NEVER done…

Take a look at this video, it’s one of MANY tool’s you should have in your toolbox…

Until Next Time…

My goal here on the World Wide Web isn’t just going to be another “Gun” blog.  I am going to take the last 15 plus years of experience and real life and put them out there. Might be a gun review, training synopsis, equipment test, Close protection training, EP related stuff, or just a rant or two!  Please feel free to let me know what you like and what you don’t like, I may or may not listen, but that is the beauty of ALL of this, I have the option to listen or not, and you have the option to read or not.  And if you are reading this right now, I want to say THANKS.  I know you don’t have to but I’m glad you did. 

Until Next Time…

Stay Safe.
