I am a 15-year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard, where I was fortunate to get to do a lot of fun things, including deploying/instructing on five continents and serving in quick reaction force roles for multiple National Special Security Events in the United States as a member of the Coast Guard’s counterterrorism team. Now that I’ve gone Reserve, I’m trying to find a life in the civilian sector. I am a Reserve Deputy Sheriff and I own a small gun parts and gear company. Obviously, I also like to spend my time rambling on the internet.

I’ve been through a lot of schools, I’ve been trained by a lot of elite guys, and I hold several certifications, including National Rifle Association Law Enforcement certification as a pistol and shotgun instructor and Range Safety Officer. I also graduated from the Sig Sauer Academy’s Semiautomatic Pistol Instructor Course, and am certified as an AR-15 Armorer through Colt, a Sig P320 Armorer through Sig Sauer, and a Glock Armorer through (you guessed it) Glock.

What does that mean? I guess it means that I’ve had the chance to learn a lot, but I’m still always learning. I love to learn, whether about guns, gear, and tactics, or about politics or warfare (I’m currently working on two Master’s degrees). I’d like to think that as I learn, maybe I can share here and other people can learn, too.

Thanks for coming along with me!

Let’s build something together.
