>>28671528 I wouldnt say that, especially if they deployed and saw some shit. I was referencing the many 03 resersivists who never deployed or..done anything really that will try and muscle their clout into conversation as if they are hardened badasses for simply being in the infantry.
>>28672348 they mainly only want ex milfags, but you can try becoming security certified and possibly work your way up the ladder. get a security clearence by the grace of god and then apply for government contracting and bum around in kuwait and afghanistan, then die
>>28672437 I'm currently AFNG maintainer (thought I would hate the military, now hate that I didn't join a branch to be an actual soldier) so I've got the security clearance. Just need to conditional release asap, what branch were you? I'm thinking either army special operations or marines. Already have the PT for both from personal pursuits.
>>28672721 if you are serious about putting your body through all kinds of rediculous torture for the glory of maybe possibly maybe sort of MAYBE being SF then go Army, they have more options, if you join the Marines your only options for SF are marine raiders, scout sniper, recon or force recon. Since you want to be a government security contractor AND already have a clearance I would recommend applying to those positions through clearancejobs dot com
>>28670486 I work at a gunshop. It's pretty nice. We get our highs and lows and shit. Got really bad here after the San Bernadino shooting, and hopefully it'll level off soon. Guys, as much as I hate to say it, don't panic buy. While I love selling guns and helping people out, having people come in and just buy shit because something happened and not because you chose to is a pretty bad mindset. People constantly want Glock 19s and they come back saying "Oh, it's an ok gun." Or "Oh, the trigger kind of sucks."
>>28674532 At the risk of derailing this fine thread, I've got two questions for you, anon: 1) What are some common annoyances customers do that drive you nucking futs? 2) What are some things the average /k/omrade can do to be a chill customer you like having around?
>>28674726 1) Sometimes people come in and just look at stuff or touch stuff without even striking up a conversation. I'm fine with people not buying anything, but please don't be a mute about it. The second thing that bothers me is people who either know nothing about guns or think they know everything. I get it, but you're not impressing anyone. Can't we just learn together and talk about guns without dick waving? Lastly, these are people that annoy me the most, are the ones who reach behind our Do Not Cross line to help themselves to the .22s. Dude, just ask and I'll show it to you- there's a reason it's behind the counter. Don't do that.
2) You don't have to do much aside from coming in and acting like a normal person. Come in, ask questions, ask us if we can order something for you, let's chat it up about any gun you want. Just be patient if it's busy. I'm a bit odd amongst the older guys in the shop because I like talking to people. But that's just me.
>>28670486 I'm retired military and currently a gunsmith.
It's boring shit.
99.9% of my daily activities are replacing sears Fudd went to town on with a bastard file, or mounting cheapshit Tasco/BSA scopes on magnum boltguns so Elmer can shoot another yearling doe at 30yds with his 7mmMag.
>>28677806 Started contracting with a firm here in CO that does primarily cannabis industry security. The firm I work with only hires ex mil and is the biggest in the industry right now but there are probably 10 firms besides us that probably hire whoever, idk haven't looked into many others. I just had my resume on Indeed and they contacted me.
>>28678115 Good guess that's about 70% of guys at the firm but nope, 88M, IED detector, got out as an e4. >>28678133 CO, I lived in NY 2 years and it fucking blew honestly. NY city or out in the sticks like Syracuse?
>>28672317 Thanks. Actually it's a job I enjoy a lot. Best moment was when I had this super nearsighted kid, I mean he wore glasses you could make submarine windows out of, and I still managed to get him to qualify by the end of the week by letting him use optical sights and high contrast targets. He was fucking stoked, like he'd won the Olympics. >tfw
>>28678701 Hey sounds like a cool gig can you answer some questions for educational purposes? What's the state, town and GPS coordinates of the site? How many people work security, how many per shift, what times are shifts and how long are change overs? What exact firearms in what calibers do you use and as well as how many of each are on each shift? What is your exact uniform and duty equipment? Post pics of uniform, patches, ids, ect. Post pics of site maps and perimeter, any weak spots that give you trouble. What exactly is housed where? Thanks a bunch bud!
>>28678736 >city So sorry. I've looked into LE for years and just decided to pull the trigger now that I've been out of the service awhile. Besides that I want a semblance of steady pay and benifits that I had and honestly hate the way our society views LE as the bad guys now and that made me want to do it even more.
>>28678881 Ah ok. Yah, most here in CO only take or prefer prior service guys. It's a different clientele than normal security gigs. The sites are high risk investments for them so they want more experienced sec personal. My firm only hires ex mil and a majority of us are combat vets but there are a bunch of guys with non combat Mos.
I'm a probation / parole officer. I carry a gun and wear armor every day. On rare occasions I do get to kick in a door and drag somebody out of their house in cuffs, which breaks up the monotony. I work closely with local cops because having a ppo present allows you to circumvent the need for a warrant. I lead a lot of searches and recover a lot of drugs on them, so it helps me feel operator.
It is a good job and not hard if you have a decent personality for it. I like that I can drive around for hours on slow days and I can make my own schedule. Very low stress, so long as you aren't intimidated or don't mind speaking in front of crowds, attorneys, and judges. Most offenders are perfectly respectful because they want you to treat them leniently, and the ones who give you attitude are either going to get into something stupid and you can rearrest them, or they will just stay off the radar completely.
I haven't been doing it much more than a year and was planning on using it as a stepping stone to a state investigator job, but now I am unsure. The job is generally super chill and my supervisors are great. I could make more in other agencies, but this job is actually really pleasant, way more so than I expected.
>>28678918 It happens every thread. I don't know if it's jelious rage or just autism peaking through. It's even funnier that there are plenty of other jobs posted that make more money, are LEO and military even DOD contractors yet somehow my gig is special enough to enrage them.
>>28678987 No honestly not. You don't need it to get a job it's just our firm specifically draws a higher number of combat vets. There are other firms that just want guys with are mil background, even if you were are cook they will take you. Granted, our firm has pretty much cornered the market here but again you do not need combat experience to work in the industry, it Arellano depends on the hiring firm.
>>28679013 >excessively brag In what way is answering questions asked to me bragging? Not one answer I've given had stood out as promoting the job as anything more than a security guard position. Can you answer honestly why your getting so mad over something that effects you in no way over the dozens of other jobs posted?
>>28672317 Imo teachers as we use them are more of a deterrent of education than anything else, their main job is to be propagandists, kids can teach themselves in the right environment requiring minimal adult instruction/teaching.
>>28672348 hey sorry for my late response but im the dude you original asked >my LT basically knew a guy who knew a guy but they did contact me first if you're asking who made the first move when it came to applying with said company.
7 months after i left the army, and after completing their training course/background screening i was offered a contract job for a year and a half, im also about to renew said contract in a few months.
In my state we have several months of shadowing an officer, then a basic school of 6 to 7 weeks. You do have to Qual with a weapon twice, do night shoots, very silly hand to hand training, and all that. Get sprayed with OC as well. But they are pretty candid that most training comes on the job, and there is regular in service training and qualifications once on the job.
In my state (NC) the basic academy is held at the state justice academy, where they train everyone from our investigative agencies to fish and game to license and theft and also prison guards. It Is a pretty nice facility and the time there is not unpleasant, although a little boring. Our regimen was super chill- we could wear plainclothes and had to carry a blue gun, but didn't have the structure of prison guard stuff, or the relatively intensive PT of some other agencies.
It is a sworn position in NC (not all states give probation officers the same authority) and you have full arrest authority. Department policy is that we very rarely execute that authority outside of offenders, though. The logic they told us was that it encourages us to hand off shit we don't want or that goes beyond our purview to local cops. I walk in on domestic situations all the fucking time, I am NOT getting caught up in that shit but will instead call the sheriff or police over the radio. By the same token most people don't know what the role of a probation officer is, and when they see a guy dressed up like a swat team member (for field work we have to wear our full safety package) they make a reasonable assumption that that person is a cop, and will ask you to check into this or arrest this and that or go shoot a dog.
I personally don't really consider it a LEO position but I guess it is... I carry a badge and arrest people. It is a very chill job 99% of the time, though, and you can avoid almost all of the excitement if you want to. I get LE preferential pricing and whatnot, which is a nice perk.
I work for the largest distributor of firearms in the US, I primarily handle larger shops and a number of police depts in the west. I get to go to SHOT and talk hype everyone up on pending new arrivals as im finger fucking them. and sit back and take orders as riots occur. (i wish i had the oakland PD acct, that fucker makes bank) and watch the phones non stop ring after every shooting (especially after the Obama tear). Ask away.
I'm a commercial photographer and have done a bunch of stuff for gun and tactical gear ads/catalogs and also for airshit companies.
It's actually really fun to shoot this kind of stuff, not only is it like being a kid playing with giant human GI Joes, but it also lets you do all kinds of cool moody lighting and processing that most gigs don't involve. I get a decent amount of work too, because I actually know enough about firearms and military stuff that I can do authentic-looking photos and won't make stupid mistakes, and also because the vast majority of photogs are antigunners.
I wish I could share some stuff but most of the rights are owned by clients, and a lot of companies know about /k/ and wouldn't be happy to know I post here.
Just kidding, most of the guards here are cool dudes, but the women always are total b itches and shriek at us while we're waiting to talk to the magistrate. The women are always the fucking rejects who can't do anything with a public face at the sheriff's dept, so they put them in the jail and they yell at all the male officers. I fucking hate them and try to go to the jail during second shift to avoid them because big fucking surprise, the women only want to work day shift.
>>28678794 Lol. I always want to do an AMA or at least post a thread about it, but there's so little we're actually allowed to talk about, and so much that's Safeguards Information that it'd be pointless.
Since we no longer have them , I can tell you that at one point we carried Smith Model 66s with a few speedloaders and Remington 870s.
>>28681122 It must have been badass to operate there in the 80s and 90s with that loadout lol. Yah I know what you mean about the whole OPSEC thing. A good friend of mine is in the same line of work and every time I ask he just baits me with cryptic answers
Yea I work second shift due to that and the .50 difference a hour. There's like 2 women I work with that are fucking fantastic the rest are a hassle and prison candy. It got worse when we started to recruit 18 year Olds. Fucking extra work majority of them and most of them don't understand the simple thing of "don't act like your shit , treat everyone with respect to earn it , and don't give frivolous DRs".
