Episode 346 Black Man With A Gun Show
This week I got the opportunity to attend the first tactical Operators Day at G4S International Training, inc. It was in Shacklefords, Va. Its one of those really nice places the government can send you to training in counterterrorism operations, driver and advanced firearms skills. The place has two driving courses both on and off road, three firearms ranges, with a ballistic shoot house, four classrooms, and plenty of places you can get the stuff knocked out of you under adult supervision.
There were a few vendors there, TSSI was a co-host of this year’s event. Don Wright and I hit it off pretty good. Don is part of the TSSI’s success story.
I soon became a fan of master instructors Tim Peck and Brandon Wright. I hope Brandon will take me under his wing and actually get me up to speed again. The dude is a shooter and a heck of a technical driver.
The turn out was probably lighter than expected based on the leftover donuts but enough came out to the one-day event aimed at networking for law enforcement and military types that have to do what has to be done in the gravest extremes.
I met some cool people like veteran journalist Christian Lowe that shared some insight on the freelance writing world and had some encouraging words for me. I met and found a brother in the owner of Barnes Precision Machine. That dude is cool.
We talked about life, business and real stuff. I am really glad folks slept on all the knowledge he was sharing cause it left more for me to soak up. I think he is prior special forces and has made some serious improvements on the AR-15. We had a great conversation about the .30 caliber round, which led to him showing me his .300 blackout cartridge, rifle and process. He recently went hunting with the .300 blackout cartridge and took down a beautiful deer. Both rifle and deer seen here.

I got a chance to hang out with a senior special agent for the VA Dept of Alcoholic Beverage Control, and he told me some stories about moonshiners that I didn’t even know was still happening in the hills of ol Virginny.
I owe it all to my sisters at Laura Burgess Marketing for the initial introductions to my new friends at ITI or none of this would have occurred.
