Sight Offset >>>
If the AR / Carbine format is your weapon of choice this article is a must read. Written by the staff of Man Alone Tactical, this article will provide a detailed understanding of "Sight Offset" and how it will improve your shooting.

Tactical Carbine Training

Great projection of power, but a complex weapon to apply from battle zero to shooting position. Learn from pros that can not just do it, but can break it down into easily grasped fundamentals. Fundamentals that if mastered and maintained, can save your life.

Tactical Pistol Training

This is the weapon you will most likely have handy when it is time to save your life because trouble comes to call. Shooting just isn′t enough. That you qualify well on the range does not impress the bad guy. You need to know how to use the pistol in a fight. Huge difference.

What We Do

We have highly trained, experienced, qualified and able tactical instructors. Man Alone Tactical offers a variety of courses for Law Enforcement, Military and Civilian personnel including; the South Carolina Concealed Weapons Permit Course, as well as a complete tactical rifle and pistol training, and defensive shotgun training.

09/11/2011 - "The Tactical Pistol Course was my first Man Alone Tactical experience, and it will not be my last. The course objective was clear and the approach precise. Although it was fast paced, the instructor was great at taking you beyond your normal comfort level. You finished each segment confident and ready for the next. Great Job!" >>>Lewis - Beaufort, SC

Our focus and intent are clear. Our tactical training courses are planned around safety, execution and responsible use of tactics. We train these professional gun handlers to dominate the fight without collateral damage. Participants will learn proper doorway entry and egress shooting, as well as disadvantaged shooting techniques. To fulfill this objective, the training requirements have to be stringent. Our techniques have been developed and tested in real life by people whose survival depends on dominating the threat or deadly force encounter.

Pennsylvania: 2014 Legislative Session Ends With Victory
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 16:50:00 GMT - After four years of effort, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives finally passed critical firearms preemption legislation.  Yesterday, the state House voted to concur on the Senate amendments to House Bill 80 by an overwhelming 138 to 56 vote.  HB 80, when signed into law, will strengthen the state firearms preemption statute to further ensure that firearm and ammunition laws are consistent throughout Pennsylvania.
Washington: Majority of Washington State Sheriffs Oppose I-594
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 14:30:00 GMT - A majority of Washington State’s 39 sheriffs have come out in opposition to anti-gun Washington State Ballot Initiative 594.  The sheriffs oppose I-594 because it will not make anyone safer, will strain scarce law enforcement resources, will criminalize the lawful behavior of millions of law-abiding gun owners in Washington and will be unenforceable.  Instead, I-594 would vastly expand the state’s handgun registry and force law-abiding gun owners to pay fees and get the government’s permission to sell or even loan a firearm to a friend or family member.

NRA-backed bill clears Pa. legislature; Corbett indicates he'll sign it
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 08:00:00 GMT - In the final minutes of the legislative session, the House on Monday approved a bill clearing the way for the National Rifle Association and other groups to sue local municipalities, among them Philadelphia, that enact ordinances stricter than state firearms laws.
How gun-control legislation is affecting this election
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMT - Many sheriffs in states that recently passed gun-control laws have signed letters saying they are opposed to the laws, saying the gun bans won’t make America safer. Some even say they won’t enforce these new laws. This has gotten some press. What hasn’t been reported is the very governors in New York, Connecticut and Maryland who signed those gun and magazine bans are also reluctant to enforce these laws. It seems they don’t want a political backlash. They don’t want journalists making martyrs out of otherwise law-abiding citizens who might be charged with felonies for doing what they’ve done all their lives. This is where politics runs into reality. It’s a collision voters need to hear more about.
Eric Holder: ‘I take personally as a failure’ the inability to pass gun control
Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMT - If there’s one thing that Eric Holder regrets during his time as attorney general for the United States, it’s his failure to press through a Second Amendment crackdown on the heels of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that left 20 children and six adults dead, he said.

Tue, 21 Oct 2014 00:00:00 GMT - Residents of Washington state will get to vote next month on whether gun buyers should be subject to background checks for purchases made at gun shows or online. In fact, they’ll be able to vote on the issue twice.

"We go to great trouble to drive down and have a closed session on the range. His huge understanding that every action is made of a set of smaller actions all of which build into the final product is the key. Sometimes he′s not saying anything that we have not already heard, he just says it in such a way that it finally sticks, or is refreshed, and that is priceless. He didn′t cash our checks either." >>> ‘PE’, U.S. Army Special Forces, Fort Bragg

Professional Training Information and Schedule


Church Security and Threat Assessment

The basic elements that make a church effective are the very things that make it a "soft target". Let Man Alone Tactical provide the training for your Church Security Team.

Urban Rifle

While we will not be offering any long distance rifle courses, with the reconfiguration of the range we will be able to offer intermediate range Urban Rifle. This course will allow you fellows with bolt action rifles as well as precision AR format guns to train in improvised positions much like you would be working from in your home or city. You will fight the clock and you will fight through increasingly difficult positions as you experience the limitations of both found in hostile situations. It is a great chance for you deer hunters to put what you do to the test in a very different set of circumstances. Open to law enforcement, military and properly vetted civilians. Check the schedule for more information.

Mobile Tactical Training Courses

Man Alone Tactical can provide any of our tactical weapons courses at your training facility. We bring our equipment, knowledge and mobile training team to you, which reduce your training cost. We can design training plans to meet your specific needs. Whether you need to identify weaknesses or expand tactical options, we can help. Please contact us for more information and hosting requirements.





South Carolina CWP Classes

Our SC Concealed Weapons Permit training day starts in the classroom in which the SLED licensed instructor reads your level of understanding and will guide you with insights and scenarios to lead you to a fuller understanding of the legal aspect of gun ownership and use as well as the complexities of the self defense laws. We also provide insight on concealed carry law and the use of lethal force. Safety is stressed throughout course.

"I was nervous when I began my concealed weapons permit course because I did not have much firearms experience. By the end of the course, I was very confident in my ability to handle my firearm and was looking forward to more future target practice. I recommend Man Alone Tactical to my friends all the time." >>>Mom of twin boys, USMC Spouse - Beaufort, SC

The afternoon is spent on the range. SLED requires a fifty round minimum qualification test. At Man Alone Tactical, we up that. Each student in our program shoots one hundred and fifty rounds. We start with dry fire and build up to a practice test, noting and concentrating on where folks are having difficulties. We then shoot to qualify.
