“Before we continue let me just say one thing. That was fucking amazing.”
Paul Barrett – On the Boomershoot Firing Line
April 28, 2012
[I spent the day with Paul and his wife Saturday on the firing line at Boomershoot. I teamed up with some support from Gene Econ and some of the instructors to ensure that Paul had a good time.
The above was the quote out of his mouth after smacking some steel at 400 yards. Then we did it again and again. He was ready to stop after his first hit because his ratio was 1 for 3 on hits.
There is no question though with that comment he had a good time. Even with what happened later, he shrugged it off and said, “It’s another story.” I’ll write up details on that one later. He was also looking forward to telling the story in the office on Monday. –B]
Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.
