Combat Tactical Academy

Law Enforcement Instructors and NRA Certified Instructors will present the same basic combat handgun techniques they teach to police and military personnel.

Combat Tactical Academy offers this introductory course designed to teach and develop the fundamental handgun skills necessary should a lethal confrontation arise. Whether you are a citizen interested in self-defense or an experienced Special Forces operator basic handgun skills are exactly the same. Whether you are a new shooter or one with years of experience, your skills WILL significantly improve. We Guarantee it.

This is a LIVE FIRE firearms course which takes you from the basics up through the defensive use of the handgun or shotgun.

Among the many handgun skills you acquire will be the ability to safely and easily draw your weapon from the holster and fire two, controlled shots to the center of a target 5 yards away – all under 2.5 seconds!
