New from Pinellas

Hello all. My name is Greg and I am a Veteran Marine who lives in Pinellas County Florida. I was enlisted in the Marines for 7 years (4 active, 3 reserve) before I injured my back and was taking from the Corps. I spent the next few years working on my degree in Criminology and Homeland Security (just starting in my Masters) as well as working the Security and Investigation Industries. I had thought of doing law enforcement work, but decided against it as I saw the writing on the walls: the governments were running out of money and more privatized policing has been coming to the forefront. Today, I own my own PI and Security Firm, South Florida Impact Investigations, where we do all manner of investigations and security operations. However, we also provide training for LE and Security personnel. Our instructors are certified to train in the use of force, secondary weapons, excited delirium, security training, and soon firearms training.

When I am not working, I enjoy living with my wife and fireteam of children. I love going to the range and internet surfing. I love to teach, and I love to learn, so I am always trying to do both. For the rip old age of 34, I feel like I have done a lot of great things in my life. I helped to liberate and give birth to a new country (Kosovo), helped redesign Security for a few major businesses and have raised my kids. Now I am trying to give back.

Some things about me:
1. I am blunt, and I don't like to sugar coat things
2. I lean Republican, but I am not a right winger. I will correct either side if they post false or misleading comments.
3. I am a damn good shot.
4. I can't remember where I put my keys, but I can recite an entire training manual from memory.
5. I will fight for the things I believe in

Otherwise, I think I am an ok guy. My weapons: Glock G19 and a Rock River Arms LAR-15.

Welcome Greg. It looks like you are a busy guy - business, grad school, family. Thank you for your service!
Good day Greg and welcome,
We have a place in Pinellas County which we visit a few times a year. I have not been able to find a local range at which to shoot. Can you tell me where you go? We plan on being in the area the first week of next month and I would like to get some range time in while there.
