Are you thinking about purchasing your first firearm? Did you just receive your concealed carry permit? Looking for advanced firearms training to build upon your previous experience and training? Maybe you want to take your career in the security profession to the next level. At Spearhead Tactical we have a training program for you. Spearhead Tactical is the firearms and tactical training division of Spearhead Global Security. We firmly believe that anyone who owns and/or carries a firearm should have proper training, not just in the practical application and use of a firearm, but on the laws governing the use of deadly force and self-defense.
Shooting is a learned skill that is perishable over time. Developing a solid foundation of basic fundamentals, understanding the mental and physical effects adrenaline has on our bodies, knowing how physiological responses impact our ability to engage a threat, and increasing your overall skill level are all factors every gun owner should consider. The more you learn & train, the better you shoot, the better chance you have of surviving a deadly force encounter.
At Spearhead Tactical our goal is to provide realistic and effective techniques to improve your shooting and provide you with the tools to increase your survival. We bring the street to the range, so you don't bring the range to the street. However, this is not Special Forces, Navy Seal, Armed Contractor, nor Call of Duty training. We provide basic, intermediate and advanced firearms training for gun owners who want to become more proficient shooters. Our training will prepare you to survive realistic life-threatening encounters you may face day to day on the street and in your home.
There are many experienced firearms instructors out there with solid credentials. Do not be lured into firearms training by people playing "dress up", without legitimate training and experience are willing to sacrifice your safety and set you up for failure. All of our firearms training courses emphasize SAFETY and are taught by David C. Kaiser, retired U.S. Army Special Forces and an experienced and extensively trained firearms instructor. Please see our dynamic firearms and tactical training courses below.
