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.
