About Nate Swierkosz


"Hello, name is Nate Swierkosz and I am the owner of First Line Tactical LLC. I started my career in the Army in November of 2012, serving 6 years in an Infantry unit until November 2018. In 2017 I attended the Beaver County Police Academy, graduating in 2018 with my Pennsylvania Act 120 (Municipal Police Certification). During my service with the Army I qualified on, serviced, and conducted troop movements and training missions using various weapons systems, and methodology. Given the experience I gained while serving in the Army, it fit to also pursue Law Enforcement. I am currently and actively employed with the Ambridge Borough Police Department as a Patrolman, and Bridgewater Borough as a Patrolman. I am currently the Firearms Instructor conducting Police Yearly Qualifications, and in department training at Bridgewater Police Department.

During my time as a Law Enforcement Officer I have worked generally in higher call volume areas, gaining useful experience in de escalation and avoidance techniques relating to crime prevention, practical medical response, dynamic use of force incident response, and various other useful skills pertaining to firearms safety and practical use. I have used the network of friends and co-workers I have met over the years and created First Line Tactical. I saw a need for compassionate, and battle tested instructors. We know it works, because we do it everyday. Come train with us, and join us on our journey!"

 

About First Line Tactical


Our instructors are all knowledgeable, competent, and friendly. Ensuring the most quality of instruction in the Western side of the state.

Most of our instructors are still current Law Enforcement, and or Military service members. This gives us access to the most up to date legal information, and training assets in regards to firearms.

We work with shooters of all backgrounds. We have instructors who have backgrounds in more advanced Military and Law Enforcement Units, all the way down to Ma' and Pa' shooters, who have been around firearms just about their whole lives. (Trust me those are the best!)

If at the end of the class you still don't feel comfortable, don't worry. Pull an instructor to the side and we will surely accomodate any concern or issue you are having. We are here to develop confident civilian firearms owners.
