Hey there everyone! I’m ecstatic that you stumbled over to my little slice of heaven on the internet. I started Tactical Toolbox as a way to cope with loss. I needed a creative outlet to discuss my three passions: firearms, budgeting money, and entrepreneurship. I have always had a passion for helping and inspiring others, and Tactical Toolbox has helped me help others in ways that I never imagined possible.
My goal with Tactical Toolbox is to educate others about firearms, saving money, and using blogging as a way for make a full-time income. This little thing we call the internet has the ability to make all of our dreams become a reality, when utilized properly.
Needless to say, blogging has changed my life, and now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.
After 8 years of school, my dream of going to medical school and becoming a surgeon came to an abrupt end. Despite the fact that I performed well in school and studied very hard. It wasn’t enough to get me past the dreaded Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).
After taking the MCAT three times and not scoring high enough, I went through a few months of confusion. During those few months I kept running over everything in my head. I constantly thought about all the time, energy, and student loans that I spent over the years. I sacrificed so many opportunities to have fun and spend time with friends and family. That was time that I could never get back.
During those confused months I took a class called “Social Media Marketing” at my local college. This class opened my eyes to a new world of opportunities. Because of that class I have began this journey to follow my passions and get paid for doing it.
Currently I have a B.S. in Business Finance. It took me 7 years to finish due to working full-time and volunteering at hospitals. Although, I wasn’t able to fulfill my dream of becoming a surgeon, I wouldn’t change anything about my past. Those 8 years taught me more about myself than some people learn in a lifetime.
As I mentioned earlier I really enjoy firearms. Learning about them, shooting them, customizing them, and educating others about them. Guns were never supposed to become a hobby. My original intent was to purchase 2 pistols for my wife and I as a means of protection. Don’t get me wrong personal protection is still their main purpose. However, I have made more friends from going to the gun range than I ever had with any other hobby.
