So you joined the site, to just spam?

Your 5 posts don't contribute anything, other than you desire to earn a commission

You are a crappy representative of our armed forces. Would never deal with your unethical behavior.

Why does anyone think his posting here is unethical? He clearly identifies himself, and his intentions. Nobody has to reply to him if they don't want to. So what is the big deal, and why all the hate? I don't get it.

I think so because it's all he posts about, and it's kind of a shady practice. Would you be ok with it if he was posting for Primerica?

Uh, again he posted up front who he was and what he was doing, in the appropriate forum I think. I'm still not getting how its inappropriate, or how its shady. Shady, IMO, would be if he was not up front about his intentions, and then tried to back door recruit.

It sounds more to me like you just have sour grapes due to your failed attempt at military service.

It would be just as equally objectionable if Eric Landin was posting for Primerica as well.

This is a special interest discussion group. The forum name of "Calguns" should be a hint as to that. We have a dedicated subgroup for "Calgunners in Service", but that is for service members to discuss their firearms interests.

Eric used the forum to promote his business interests (being a recruiter) and, looking at his posting history, hasn't used it for anything else. That's spam.

I'd be equally bothered if someone used the forum to solicit me to open a Primerica account, to buy Viagra, or to watch a live-streaming soccer game. I'll give Eric credit for his service to our country, but let's remember that the Viagra folks and the live-streamers were also "up front" with their postings.

Hmm how is offering job opportunity the Same as selling a product for a profit, I don’t get commission and still get paid whether I put people in the Army or not. The product I’m “selling” doesn’t cost you anything but your time. I’m just saying.

Deployments.

Every years worth of deployments allows you to retire a year earlier.

So I suppose 10 years in a war zone you could retire.

I'll bite. I'm very interested in computers and technology, or military intelligence.

My question to you is twofold, do you age discriminate, and do I have to P.T.?
I'm 61 years old. I don't see how humping a ruck, or running obstacles will make me better at learning these skills.

Please enlighten me to what I am missing.

Thanks!

Because you are a soldier FIRST. My daughter is 35/f. She has to go to PT, carry a ruck, spend time at a range. She's currently in a place (She's NOT in the M.E.) where I'm GLAD she knows how to be a soldier, and she's glad too.

I won't normally post here, as it's for YOUNG Callgunners. However, since the CalNazi's are chiming in (MOST of you, are TOO OLD to be in here, anyways), I'm GOING to have a say.

Personally, I see nothing wrong with you posting this opportunity here. My younger daughter is in the Army, my older daughter is in the Navy. They're BOTH, far better off than they would be otherwise.

Unless Kestryll says something to you, I would just ignore the "CalNazi's" here. They're just showing their smugness, and arrogance, as usual.

Might be a good Idea to PM Kestryll, and see if there's something you can work out with him, to make a separate sub-forum for recruiters.

He's a pretty, straight up guy.

Thank you for your service, Sir.

To the "ThreadNazi's here:

In WHAT universe, is it wrong for a man to offer a youngster an opportunity to better themselves? Keep in mind, soldiers are not only PRO gun, but TRAINED. I would think you'd encourage this, as you desperately NEED this in The Peoples Repooblik.
Things like this are a serious part of the problem in California. For your own sake, stop being part of the problem, and become part of a solution. Stop being a bunch of whining, Suit-Wetters, or are you REALLY that short-sighted.

GOD, Civilians are annoying!

To @KESTRYLL:

I think this is a good opportunity to do something helpful. Perhaps we should have a "Recruiters" sub-forum on CalGuns, so opportunities can be taken advantage of, by the Young' uns here.
