Text 970-97AARON for immediate inquiries! Hello, my name is Aaron Forum. I am a former US Army Special Forces (Green Beret), Special Forces Weapons Sergeant Instructor, United States Army Special Operations Command Foreign Weapons Armorer, and successful founder of "Shoot Center," a ~$10M annual revenue gun range and retail store. Serving over 26,000 customers in year one, we specialized in high volume retail sales, gun rentals, machine gun rentals, and on-site live-fire training. We facilitated tens of thousands of shooting lane hours and gun rentals on our indoor shooting range annually. I performed various roles from; designer, project manager, firearms training director, CFO, CEO, COO, and CMO, while scaling the business from $0. While I have not completed formal education, I do have a certificate of completion from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, “Stanford Ignite,” for completing MBA level coursework at an accelerated pace. Of a class of approximately 40 students, I was one of only two non-degreed students allowed entry, as the prerequisites included an undergraduate degree. Possessing over 10 years of military experience, I was fortunate to have served within some of the highest levels of Special Operations. US Army Green Berets are considered the US Department of Defense's premier military training and indigenous force multiplier. Master's of unconventional warfare, US Army Special Forces operate in some of the harshest environments in the world. As a member of this elite unit, I engaged in training military units in Bangladesh, South Korea, Afghanistan, and the Philippines. I was responsible for performing various high-risk tasks, while simultaneously responsible for a heavy workload of administrative duties. I held a Secret clearance for 5 years, and a TS/SCI for an additional 5 years. As a US Army Green Beret, I executed various operations, from recruiting and managing a 100+ man workforce and a $2M+ operating fund, to disarming live bombs as the Senior Engineer. While serving as an instructor at the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School, I earned certification as a Special Operations Forces Foreign Weapons Armorer and Small Group Leader Instructor. I was also the only Special Forces Engineer selected to "instruct" at the Special Forces Weapons Maintenance and Training Facility. Both were located in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I am an excellent presenter with strong oral communication skills and possess considerable experience in public relations, having performed 98 local news interviews (see LinkedIn profile). My most recent interview can be seen here: https://winknews.com/2023/06/17/fort-myers-police-department-permitless-carry-bill/ I excel at problem solving and auditing/establishing systems and processes, bringing both a natural skill for, and love of sifting through information in an effort to find solutions. I am highly detail oriented and recently performed as an Expert Witness in the Federal court of Virginia. I sat for a 9-hour deposition, with the three opposing counsel members representing the 10th ranked law firm in the United States (Reed Smith LLP). I am a former NRA Law Enforcement Instructor, and a current NRA Chief Range Safety Officer and Pistol Instructor, and have trained thousands of students.
