When it comes to firearms training in East Tennessee, no one even comes close to the expertise offered by TAC2 - Tactical Advantage Concepts 2000. TAC2 is a firearms / personal protection training facility dedicated to providing the most advanced training techniques and world-class instructors from across the nation. TAC2 is also a state-certified handgun training school and offers classes for those seeking to obtain a TN state handgun carry permit.

As an instructor, I feel that a person can NEVER get enough training. In the past; however; to receive quality training, one had to travel hundreds of miles out of East Tennessee. Unfortunately, few people are able to make those types of trips. With this in mind, I saw a great need for a top quality training facility in Upper-East Tennessee. Thus was born the idea for TAC2.

While our primary emphasis is on effective application of firearms for personal protection, TAC2 is much more than a shooting school. Violent encounters are very dynamic and in your face situations, where you may not have the opportunity or the need to draw your firearm as an initial response. Good empty hand skills are vital to extracting yourself from the jaws of the lion, in order to survive long enough to utilize your tools. With this understanding, we also encourage and offer training in non-firearm fighting skills.

While physical skills are extremely important, we firmly believe that mental conditioning is the most important factor determining the outcome of any crisis; therefore; we strive to instill the proper "MINDSET" in our clients. That being the mindset of a true warrior. The mindset that gives us the confidence to know that, no matter what situation we run into; "We are going home at the end of the day!"

Protecting yourself and your loved ones from evil is not only your "RIGHT", its your "DUTY". Freedom and Life are too precious to take lightly.

When considering firearms / personal protection training, ask for the instructor's qualifications. You'll find that TAC2 is the only "real" choice in the East Tennessee Region, so forget all the rest and train with the best!

We offer basic safety & handling to advanced tactical training in firearms, knife and hand-to-hand techniques, as well as business and personal security consulting.

Customized classes are available to meet the needs of your group or agency and we can provide training at your facility if needed.

Private classes are also available for individuals or small groups.

Thank you for considering TAC2 for your training needs.

Take care and God bless.
