I have been working in private Security for over 20 years now. How many of us are here on the forum.
I agree with you there for the most part. These days we live in a pretty wreckless society where violence is hardly an after thought. Its pretty rare these days I dont wear a threat level IIIA vest and carry a 1911 and 4 mags in addition to the one in the gun! You just really never know what you might stumble into or get confronted with. Most criminals hardly distinguish the difference in a "Flashlight Cop" getting paid minimum wage trying to scrape by and a armed Patrol Officer.I would never consider an unarmed security position these days.
