I have been getting some emails about doing Armed security, the money isn't great but really isn't too bad either. I have seen anywhere from 15-20 bucks and hour which wouldn't be bad for a temporary job.

I'm in CA and if anyone has any experience doing this kind of work I would love to hear about it.

It looks like they are hiring a ton of transit securit officers and was kinda thinking about it until I can get hired on with the police. Supposedly the work experience is pretty helpful when you transfer over to a Police Department, arrests, writing reports and citations...

It's all fun and games until a perp pops up from behind the Orange Julius counter with a full auto Kalashnikov with a 75rd drum.

YMMV, but as long as you're dealing with government morons, I doubt your experiences will be much different.


Yeah. Pretty much, yearly requals for firearms, and the hassel with the CA.gov. But, I qualled and requalled with a typical score of 599-598/600. Shooting out the x-ring on the B-27 A at 7 and 15 yds, is not that hard. I would shoot much faster than the allowed time limits---I would get the first shot out first (by a noticible margin) and finish well before anyone else. You would be dismayed by the typical scores, however.

I've done some EP work, cushy work if you don't mind dressing up nice and standing around all day. Opening doors and chaufering VIP's around, most of the real work is on the front side.

Armino- how long did it take to get the permit to carry a pistol?

I worked as an "escort" for a female erotic dancer when I was younger. Very interesting job, and yes, I was armed

All of the real work is done by "Advance Teams", people with the unglamorous tasks of booking hotel rooms, identifying the nearest hospitals, making sure that the nearest hospitals are stocked with your clients' respective blood types, RF sweeps of hotel rooms and meeting rooms, ad nauseum...

It's the boring stuff that goes on behind the scenes that they didn't show Kevin Costner doing in The Bodyguard.
