    New in Minneapolis

    Hi all. Former Navy (1995-2004) and private security professional (2004-2009) with a pretty fair amount of low/no profile operations in both current combat theatres. Also been carrying domestically since 2002 as a private citizen. Have been working to one degree or another with firearms training as a trainer since 1996. I'm currently in the Minneapolis area working on building a training business that offers awareness/avoidance training and high end firearms based personal security/home defense training for civilians. You should be able to link to our website through my profile if you're curious.

    We are initially in the Minneapolis area and eventually expanding to other cities as well. Anyone who might be interested in either attending training or becoming a trainer (armed professionals only please) feel free to PM.

    I'm here to learn new things, exchange information, stay up to date on what's going on across the country and hopefully share some valuable info from time to time as well. Looking forward to learning from you guys. Stay safe!

    Welcome. Some pretty good discussions get rolling here among the trainer-types. I just bask in the collective experience and try to sponge it all up.

    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Welcome from Michigan!
    If you have never broken your gun or bled on your gun in training, you're doing it wrong!
    Train hard, live easy.
