Professional Firearms Training $80 Lesson

 TAC-Solutions, the Premier Firearms training organization in Richmond, VA.    

   TAC-Solutions Firearms & Concealed Carry Instructors are Veterans of the Richmond Police Department S.W.A.T. Team.      

Dave Van Buren the owner, was in his first shoot out over 27 years ago when he was working undercover. (He worked undercover for most of his career! Yes, he had the Fu Manchu, pony tail, etc.) It changed his life, he became obsessed with “How do you use a firearm to save your life & your fellow officers?”

He realized civilians have 3-5 seconds to make a lifesaving decision and Police have even less time! 

He designed a Defensive Handgun Training course for the Richmond SWAT Team, a course they still use to this day. It is such a great course it is mandatory for all Richmond Officers to attend this course.

With over 250 missions on the Richmond SWAT Team, they only had to use lethal force 3 times. 

Here are a few of the advanced courses Dave has taken and excelled in.. 

  • Carlos N. Hathcock Law Enforcement Counter Sniper School
  • Virginia Association S.W.A.T. Team Leader/ Administrators School
  • FBI Counter Sniper School

Utah Concealed Weapons Class CCW $75/person

 Re-active VS Pro-active

Clients and Friends, we are offing the UTAH non-resident

 Concealed Carry Weapons Class. 

The reason that we are offering this class was HB 498, the language in that bill was allowing the Virginia State Police to take us back to the 2105 reciprocity standards. We were down to 5 states reciprocity and only one that touched Virginia.

In 2015 when we only had  5 states reciprocity, that situation lasted for about 90 days. The situation was allowed by our current Attorney General and our current Governor.

The Utah permit will give you reciprocity in all the states that Virginia gives you, plus Vermont, Delaware and Washington State. After taking the class and applying with Utah it takes at least 60, more likely 90 to 120 days, to get approved by Utah. Don’t get caught short by this situation.
