Dear Sir or Ma'am,

For the last 16 years in the military I have acquired skills that enable me to work with people and weapons with confidence. I have also worked retail in the firearm industry selling firearms and firearm accessories as well as instructing firearm safety classes.

I am a strong team player but I am equally comfortable in an independent position. I am energetic, analytical, motivated, self-driven and open to learn as well share my skills and expertise. I enjoy challenges and strive to accomplish company goals as well as maintain excellent relationships with coworkers and company clients. I know I can contribute to your company and company goals with the following skills:

* Expert firearm qualifications

* Leadership and teamwork awards in the

security field and military

* Retail experience dealing with customers

discovering their needs and recommending

appropriate services

I look forward to providing you with any further information that you require or desire.

Thank You for your time and consideration.
