  • The New Guy... (Second Attempt)

    This is my second attempt to create an account. My first one didn't seem to go through even after I validated it. So looks like this one is working now!

    Look forward to getting to know allot of you and sharing experiences, seems like there are allot different kinds of people on here. Little background on me I guess... I am sure like a lot of you I got into nightclub security back in 1999 after a roommate of me got me interested in it. I worked Arlington, Midtown and Georgetown and I became on of the top spotters of fake ID's in the VA and Wash DC area for years. I then moved to Atlanta and worked my way into and later ran the door at three the largest and hottest nightclubs in Atlanta from 2002-2005.

    Back in 2001 I decided to started my own security company, but being active duty military for the past 17 years I have to pack up and move it every 3-4 years and start over. It becomes difficult with every state having different laws and requirements and just as I get it going I have to move. I still love ID fraud, but I have been working more at getting into the celebrity and executive protection more and more and I love it. I currently live in Maine now, but again am being transferred to the New Orleans area in November 2007 so I get to start all over AGAIN!

    So who is who around here?

    Welcome MIB. I thought Brunswick closed down a long time ago. Guess Not.
    Celebrity and executive protection could be a tough one since these folks are all over the world on short notice. That would rule out a lot of options for defensive weapons. Although if you know the martial arts very well then it would be a large plus.

        Welcome. I can second the ID checking; I've been at the door of a major nightclub for about a year now, and it gives me a hard-on every time a get a fake (or misrepresented) ID. I Hope we can share some good tips... I know CA like the back of my hand.

          Re: ID's

          What you say we start an ID thread and talk about things we have seen in the past or tricks to pass on to our fellow doorman. What would be the right section on the forum to start an ID thread?

              MiB Security:
              Welcome to the forum. I am a firm believer in cross pollination and learning from each other how to do a better job and reduce risks. I didn't know the on-duty injury, disability and death rates among executive protection specialists was so very high. Insurance rate premiums for those in your chosen field are the highest in the world, if, operative word if, you can even find it. I guess it was just as hard to insure a kamikaze pilot.
              Ever have the chance to meet Chuck Vance, retired US Secret Agent? Interesting person!
              Enjoy the day,

                Actually kamikaze pilots next of kins would not be able to collect since most policies will not pay for suicide deaths. And the reason they sterilize the needle in a lethal injection death at prisons is in case the governor should call just prior to the button being pushed.

                Some more things you didn't want to know.

                Q: Whose idea was it to put an “S” in the word “lisp”?

                Q: If it’s true that we are here to help others, what are the others doing here?
                A: Never heard that ever... Ever...

                Q: Do married people live longer than single ones or does it only seem longer?
                A: Happily married people are often perfectly content with their lives, single people feel the need to be that content, so they live longer to attempt to find the one

                A: It isn't every day that people get to be hundreds if not thousands of feet above the surface of the earth. Getting to see things from that high up is a rare experience

                Did you ever stop and wonder……

                Q: Who was the first person to look at a cow and say, “I think I’ll squeeze these pink dangly things here, and drink whatever comes out?”

                Q: Why do toasters always have a setting so high that could burn the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

                A: I have a light in my freezer, but I think it's because the fridge part is generally bigger and it would be harder to see foods at the bottom with little light. A freezer, everything is in a tiny space and is all near the front

                A: Goofy has intelligence (however it isn't very apparent) but enough to talk and walk upright. Pluto is a dog and doesn't have the mental capacity to perform such acts

                Q: Can blind people see their dreams? Do they dream ??
                A: Dreaming in a little summary is just the imagination and brain continuing to think while other parts of the brain rest. So yes, I'm sure brain activity occurs while a blind person sleeps

                    Yes, which makes it more interesting to say "0."
