I just sent a message to my boss to try and get a LOA from my job. If he'll bite, I'll work on Blackwater next. One thing to consider, they WILL take teams. Any body from our training circle interested?

Not for $200/day. That's pretty short money for working in NOLA in the condition it's in. Now if they were offering $400/day I would be all over that.

Have gun(s), will travel. Send me some info. Doubt they'd take me, but hey.

More importantly, prerequisites. If it's like their oversea's jobs, you need to damn near be just out of Spec Ops. What do I have to have done in order to get this NO job?

Well the other thread on this subject was a little misleading, it appears you have to be former LEO or military to qualify.

That means BC and MPX qualify, but I don't..........

Where's the other thread?

BTW, let me know if you make contact. My boss wants me to talk to him tomorrow about the possibility.......and who knows. Perhaps BW has a hard time filling slots......

This is interesting. How does one who has no background in Military or Police, get into something like this? I would be very interested in learning what I would have to do to be qualified for the future for something like this, if at all possible?

We had someone offering a course that makes you a shoe-in at Blackwater.

I have heard of people being hired at Blackwater that didn't have prior LE or.mil experience, but I think they had uber connections and references and went through the Blackwater Academy.

So as far as everyone knows, there is none of these security companies that are willing to invest in someone who is well versed in firearms, responsible, dedicated to learning?

I'm hearing that blackwater is offering 8k/week for the right individuals.

If they need to offer that much money, I probably don't want any part of it.
Luckily, I'm not high speed, and don't have to make those sorts of decisions.

Five gun champ might be able to go, but I don't think they have any Wolf on hand.
BYO.
