Hey Guys!I am an avid shooter. I spent seven years in the US Army and had a brief stint as a Police Officer until I torn up my knee. I love getting tactical and trying to remember what I have learned through the years. Looking to do a couple of classes in the future to learn new things or improve on old./wp-content/forum-smileys/anim_stick.gif

Um... hey...I'm Derek. I write on diving. I dive. I live in Clearwater, FL. I like being outside, backpacking, kayaking, cycling... all that fun stuff. I like to shoot when I get time (which has been scarce lately with all of the other stuff). I servered the US NAVY where I was discharged, medically, recieved a waiver, and am currently in the process of enlistment (again) for another go at BUD/S. I have been a member of ITS from just a few months in to the best of my recollection.Welcome everyone new and old... I look forward to some interesting days with you guys.PS. What's 5+6?

Looks like us Florida peeps are well represented. I'm Jason, currently a Sergeant with a South Florida Police Department. I 've served as our agency's hand to hand instructor for the last 12 years or so. Also have been a training officer, firearms and tactics instructor, tactical communications officer for the hostage negotiation team. I've been trolling this sight since June, what a wealth of info.

Hello All,John here. I reside just outside of Denver Colorado. Full on outdoor fanatic. Thank god for the ITS iphone app…Been cruising the ITS site for a while, then became fully addicted when the shot show info was being posted. Had to jump on the Plank Owner opportunity once that was offered. Glad to be here./wp-content/uploads/2010/01/PlankOwnerSignature.png

Hey,My name is Jayson. I'm a husband and father. I have been in the Tennessee ARNG for 16+ years where I currently fly AH-64A Apache helicopters and work full-time for the Dept. of the Army. I had the privilege to use my flying and shooting skills in Afghanistan during OEF 7. Prior to my current career track I worked for 6 years as a Police Officer, the last 4 of which were as a Tactical Unit Operator. I am a NRA certified handgun carry permit instructor, a Blauer Tactical Systems Personal Defense Readiness Instructor, and CrossFit affiliate owner and certified trainer. If I can offer any assistance on these subjects feel free to pick my brain. I don't know much, but maybe I can point you in a helpful direction. I like all things outdoors, guns, and gear. I'm here to learn skills to make me a better warrior.

An official hello to everyone.I'm Sean from Living Armor. We are a P.I. and protection agency in the northwest. I won't duplicate my bio too much since its on our site under the "staff" link, but I'm happy to be among everyone here.Other than the willingness to fight for those who can't, the quality I most value in my guys and myself is the desire to keep learning and sharing for the good of us all. Thats why I'm here and reading every word, and hopefully some of my comments end up being useful.Individually speaking, I also print shirts, and do a lot of gunsmithing, including building, refinishing, etc., and I like to fabricate tooling, gear, and whatever I need. I'm a member of Oathkeepers, and a supporter of the Patriot Post. /wp-content/forum-smileys/anim_beer.gif

Hey guys and girl :)My name is David Kauzlaric, I am 22 and I currently live in Appleton, WI. I work for a political organization running their web dept and internet marketing dept. I was going to school for criminal justice but changed over to business/internet marketing, but now that I have my Master Certificate in Internet Marketing, am eager to get back to criminal justice.Probably one of the youngest here at 22, but I love survival camping, gear, guns, tactical training (taken a few classes), and anything outdoors. Love hockey :)Currently just working on losing a decent amount of weight and getting into shape, unfortunately, nothing like all of the bios I just read!I found this website by searching "how to rappell" on youtube and have been hooked since and just signed up to be a plank member! Also am a card-carrying fan boy of Apple :)Anyway, enough rambling... look forward to having intelligent discussions and learning all that I can from all of you!Thanks,David

Howdy.  Im Nate, 36 and live in the St. Louis Metro area in the People's Democratic Republic of Illinois.  I did a short stint as an 11B in the Illinois Guard a long time ago.  Now, I work for the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs and adjudicate disbility claims for vets.  Basically, if you were in and you send off your form to file a claim, Im the guy who gets that form and works it.  In a morning, you can help a kid who gave it all in Afghanistan and turn around and help an old timer who did his best in someplace like Bastonge in WWII.  Awesome job to have.  I know theres alot of vets here so if you have questions about benefits: ask!After a long absence, I got back into my guns about 2 years ago.  Finally built my first AR last year.  Im also a hardcore EDC guy and into knives and other little gadgets too.  Avid military history fan and really into Russian military stuff. Again, nice meeting you guys.  Have a feeling Ill spend alot of time here.
