About Gaines Tactical Training!

I'm George Gaines, and welcome to Gaines Tactical Training. My company bears this name because this is what I teach: Tactics to Save Lives and Keep You Safe. My classes include tactics for preventive and non-lethal self-defense as well as tactical training for close-combat situations. The gun is always the last option.

Having trained extensively with Israel's top instructors from its IDF and Security Forces, their influence weighs heavily on my firearms philosophy. I train all students to use the "Israeli Method" of shooting because it represents the gold standard, both in tactics and safety. Seasoned shooters come to appreciate it and often adopt it as their preferred method of shooting. I think you'll like it too!  

If you are ever forced to defend your own life or the lives of others, it will be your tactical shooting skills that enable you to prevail. Standing still while shooting bottles in the backyard or targets at the range is not going to prepare you for an actual gun fight.

Marksmanship skills, while useful, are not the skills you need to win a gun fight. You need tactical gun fighting skills, which are different. If you're in a gun fight and are wounded or killed, you are no longer in the fight, and the threat will continue unabated. In order to protect yourself, you must learn safe gun handling in the context of tactical shooting. And, you must train the same way that you fight.

I provide tactical training for men & women, civilians & law enforcement, including those who have never shot a firearm as well as those with many years of experience. 

For the record, I'm certified by the United States Concealed Carry Association (USCCA) as an Instructor, Training Counselor, and Range Safety Officer.  I'm also certified by the National Rifle Association (NRA) as an Instructor in multiple disciplines as well as Range Safety Officer and Chief Range Safety Officer.  Take a look my credentials.

My primary goal is for your safety and that of your loved ones. In class and at the range, I want you to have a challenging and safe learning experience.  After class, I want you to be confident that you can protect yourself and your loved ones.

Win-Win Cancellation Policy

When I register and pay in advance for a class, I plan on being there. But sometimes stuff happens.

So I've developed a simple cancellation policy that I can live with and, I trust, you can live with too:

If you need to cancel, call right away to let me know. Although I don't give refunds or allow substitutions, I give you a full year to take the class you missed, or apply your tuition to any other class, without penalty.

This way, nobody loses, a true win-win.
