Okay, just out of curiousity where do ya;ll think I should go? I'm almost done with my current contract (Blackwater) and i'm considering one more year overseas maybe...so here are some options:

I'd say Liberia! A little safer than Iraq since those guy's can't seem to learn how to shoot a rifle by aiming!

I'd find the link and pic's of what I'm talking about but dunno where I saw it at!

How did you get into your line of work? It seem's interesting!

I voted for Texas. Something about getting shot at does nothing for me. Plus, Texas is like a whole other country.

Texas, you did your time, enjoy making it out alive.

Well of course any decision will be mine, not influenced by an online poll, but was curious to see what others would say. Looks fairly tied so far but thanks for the input thus far!

Liberia is interesting, I have never been there. I have some concerns about the quality of facilities. Pay could questionable, has to be worth it!

Anti-piracy aboard a cruise liner, luxury yahct, or even cargo ship could be pretty nice. Well some cargo ships anyway! But this one is kind of a long shot as I had not had much luck with the contracts. Not to mention that is not the kind of maritime experience I have. Would definitely would have to attend a tactical course.

Iraq, been there done that, got a t-shirt. But it is the highest paying market right now too. Could probably hit a tactical course also in conjunction with employment (these can cost as high as $20K!).

I guess it will all depend on what opportunites present themselves first :)

Like Sac said you did your time in Iraq, the money may be lucrative but the inherent risks are higher IMO

Texas. You've done your time overseas, dude.

Texas dude, set up a liquor store like my army friend did....it's like you're back in Iraq with all the lowlifes that come in. LOL He actually had to get a CCW license for his 9mm SA-XD. LOL

He actually did not need a CHL for in his own shop. You are also not supposed to carry under a CHL in an establishment that is 51%+ alcohol.

I'm not an alcohol enthusiast though so I doubt that is a good idea for me!

Looks like I should have had an option E on there.... It's looking like I will be in Afghanistan in the next 3 weeks! Ack! So much for taking any time off or playing some paintball, etc...
