Bringing quality tactical training at an affordable price 

About Us


Dedicated Instructors

Rich Portwood is a veteran police officer with over 16 years of experience.  After graduating from the Illinois State Police Academy, he sought out training at his own expense.  After years of training with some of the best trainers in the world, and working as an instructor for one of the premier firearms and tactics trainers, he recognized the need for affordable training for the armed citizen and for law enforcement agencies with small budgets.  Our focus is on small departments with the ability to bring our weapons and tactics programs to any range but we offer programs for the concealed carry holder, church security, realtor safety and more

Training is vital to all law enforcement and armed citizens and, unfortunately, many agencies and individuals struggle with budgets which don't allow for much training.  We are here to help!  Whether it's setting up a dry fire program to suggestions for your range to our classes, we are the affordable option.  At a cost of $100 per day per student, each hosting agency receives two free seats in our law enforcement classes. However, special pricing is available as a package for agencies.

Small town law enforcement isn't glamorous.  Rural officers often work alone and handle calls larger agencies send multiple officers to.  However, small agencies struggle with small budgets.  Let us help you get the most out of your training budget!
