As Jacob and his team returned from overseas in early 2018, Dropzone Tactical was born. As a way to better prepare our communities, we wanted to teach people how to be their own protectors. During our time in the military we discovered there are people who lack the knowledge and skills to really become an effective force for positive change. So at Dropzone Tactical we offer proven training for all experience levels. The goal of our work is to make you better, but more importantly, safer.

The training we offer isn't about checking boxes; instead, it's about preparing you for the worst case scenarios you might encounter in the real world. Anyone who is willing to learn with us is welcome, regardless of their experience with weapons.

Lastly we would like to thank everyone who visits our site. From all of us at DZ Tac we appreciate you all and look forward to seeing you in our classes.
