Interesting set of interviews with my prospective team yesterday:
I had expected to be grilled by shooters – Men who have owned, operated, and maintained weapons their entire lives…But it turns out my interlocutors were technical folks who will be creating the algorithms and displays. Interesting questions there, some I’d never have thought of on the range, good stuff to study up on.
I did get to speak with one shooter, and I have a pretty good idea who he is, having been in awe of him for six years or so now. If it’s who I think it is he’s going to make me look like a fool on the range and in the classroom, and I’m going to be buying lots of beer for the development team. I mean hell yes, I can shoot, but what this Ranger I’m talking about does is more like magic.
So, challenges begin to manifest…This is the fun part, risk evaluation, categorization, planning, and mitigation.
Sniff. I feel at home again.
