Event Cadre


Cadre Pike

Pike has been a fan of guns and gunfire from an early age.  Upon graduating high school, he wasted one year at the Air Force Academy before the Air Force strongly suggested he join the Marines.  Pike spent 15 years in Reconnaissance and Force Reconnaissance units feeding his desire to shoot small, medium and large guns.  Along the way, Pike attended several US Army Special Forces schools and learned the second best way to do things.  The primary lesson learned was that US military special operators are the best trained in the world.  After retiring, Pike worked as an independent contractor in multiple war zones, attended several other weapons training programs and still works with the MARSOC community in an instructor capacity.  As far as pastimes, Pike enjoys doing things in various locations.  Don't inquire further.
