Tactical Training

    About Us

    Our goal is to save lives by teaching what to do when confronted by a bad person with the intent to harm you or your loved ones so that you will have the knowledge and training to protect yourself. You practice fire drills and you practice tornado drills. It is time to face the reality of the dangerous society we live in today. You need to practice active shooter drills.

    Scenario-Based Training
    While you may be an excellent marksman, targets don't shoot back. Our USCCA Certified instructors use a non projectile, force on force, firearm tactical training system which is capable of creating stress through a pain penalty without the fear of a projectile injury. This same equipment is used for training Law Enforcement Officers and Military Soldiers.

    Our training programs are tailored to be taken to businesses, churches and schools in addition to our training facility. We can do programs specifically for younger children, while our normal program is geared for those who are 17 and older.

    Contact us at info@tltdefense.com with any scheduling questions for your group.
