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 cannot 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 impress the bad guy. You need to know how to use the pistol in a fight. Huge difference.

What our clients are saying.

"Over the years I have attended numerous military and law enforcement shooting schools. I thoroughly enjoyed the training at Man Alone Tactical. The instruction is thorough, safe, relevant and challenging. There is a good spirit of teamwork built up between the instructor and students that is not seen very often."
>>> Matt C.
"Man Alone Tactical provided the instruction and tools needed to increase my speed, accuracy and confidence. They have a sincere desire to better equip their students to handle a hostile encounter."
>>> G. Holcombe - Lady′s Island
"Thank you for sharing your expertise in how to safely handle my pistol and for all the knowledge on how to use it and when. Before taking your CWP class and the Tactical Pistol class, I had no experience with shooting my gun and was very uncomfortable handling it. Your courses taught me everything I needed to know and more! Your teaching style was very professional on all levels yet your sense of humor made the learning fun and even more interesting. I appreciated your patience with me and the one on one attention to correct my errors. You have made me an awesome shooter and have given me the confidence I need to safely handle my weapon. I am so glad that I had the opportunity to learn from Man Alone Tactical. And thank you for helping to make this world a safer place. God bless you!"
>>> Laurie - Beaufort, SC
"I took the Man Alone Tactical concealed weapons course and loved it. Boss was very thorough and knowledgeable. He went well beyond the basics and I learned a tremendous amount. His instruction on the shooting range was very helpful. Most importantly, he has knowledge far beyond the concealed weapons course. He has mastered an array of dangerous talents! His knowledge in martial arts and self-defense are immense and he is a skilled instructor who communicates well with his students. He peppers the course with real life scenarios which makes it very relevant and interesting. I have recommended MAT to numerous friends and look forward to taking future courses in self-defense and tactical shooting with them. No matter the situation, I want MAT on my team or more to the point...I want to be on their team!"
>>> C Trask, Beaufort, SC
"Man Alone Tactical was a great experience for both myself and my wife. We appreciate the honest, caring and professional nature of our instructor and instructions. In these turbulent times, we feel strongly that this was a wise investment in the protection of our family. I highly recommend Man Alone Tactical."
>>> Jim - Lady′s Island
"The team at Man Alone Tactical did a great job with our group during the CWP class we took. The environment was relaxed and allowed the students to perform without pressure, but still offered the necessary training that a good CWP class needs."
>>> M. Gardner
"As you know Janie and I decided to take the class at the same time. We felt that in any situation it is very important to know that someone you can trust has your back. This is why we took the ManAloneTactical Course together. You taught us the basics of firearm safety as well as how to react in a survival situation. What I did not count on was Janie scoring higher than I did on the range, but that is another story. Thanks for everything."
>>> H. Culley
"I was amazed at the extreme level of professionalism and attention to the most minute detail provided by these courses, of which I have taken several. If you are an adrenaline junkie, the intensity and feel of the course is exhilarating. I now feel highly qualified in the handling of firearms, and I grew up around guns and thought I knew everything there was to know. I stand corrected."
>>> E. Cooler
"Knowledge, skill, passion and chivalry is what Mr. Pate brings........Mental and technical preparation along with battle wisdom is the personal growth that you take with you."
>>> C. Jones - Beaufort, SC
"I have taken the Man Alone Tactical course for my CWP and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get certified. It is an excellent course that covers all aspects of gun training. You learn safety, the laws, and they work with you on the shooting until you feel comfortable. With things the way they are in the world anymore I would recommend letting them train you. Learn to protect yourself, family and property."
>>> J. Shafer
"My 16 year old daughter has taken Man Alone Tactical self defense course. It is a wonderful course that all girls should take. My daughter was jumped at school by another girl and she was able to defend herself with ease. It teaches you not only to defend yourself but to be aware of your surroundings. In this day and age it is comforting to know that with the training she got from this course she is better able to take care of herself it necessary."
>>> J. Shafer
"The program and instructors at Man Alone Tactical have very professionally taken me from a level of mild familiarity with firearms to a deep understanding of firearms, firearms safety, weapons tactics, and comfortable accuracy with pistols, rifles and shotguns. I know as a law abiding citizen I can protect my family, myself, and other law abiding citizens. I recommend Man Alone Tactical to anyone interested in these things and simply in enjoying a weekend out of the office and home to become refocused. In addition to being well trained, I feel like the cost of the instruction is relatively low and consider the training to be a value. I understand that I have more to learn and will continue to seek training opportunities with Man Alone Tactical."
>>> C. H. Rhyne - Mount Pleasant, SC
"Took CWP class from Mitch and enjoyed it very much. Very thorough in class room work and the range time was wonderful."
>>> Papa Bud - Gardens Corner, SC
"If it wasn′t for Man Alone Tactical, and the training I received to handle my hand gun and carbine, I would still be living in fear. The level of training I received has my confidence level to the point where I know I can defend myself and family during an eminent threat. If the need to use extreme force is justified, the high level of intense trailing and heart pounding exercises has honed my skills to the point where life or death decisions are just a trigger pull away. Gun control is a perishable skill! Speed, accuracy, and the challenges of being mentally and physically capable to defend yourself with a firearm is not a natural trait. It is practiced, exercised, and memorized! I did not want to be ill prepared for the challenges society has placed on us today. Man Alone Tactical has helped me level the playing field with the expert instruction and intense training. I do not want to stand around and wait for 911 to send someone to assist my in time of peril, minutes add up when you have only seconds to react! Whether you are looking to protect yourself using defensive training moves taught in Man Alone Tactical′s Self Defense class, or enlist in one of the many firearms training classes at Man Alone Tactical, get signed up today, tomorrow may be a day late!"

"My wife and I went to Man Alone Tactical when we wanted our conceal carry permit. With Mitch all the bases were covered. It was a cake walk."
>>> Mac - Lady′s Island, SC
"My son and I took the handgun tactical course to maintain our proficiency and confidence level, plus to get my CWP, where it should be to handle handguns safely and with the respect deserved. Man Alone Tactical provided the means, both professionally and efficiently, to achieve that goal."
>>> Bob S.
"I grew up in a home where guns were an expected part of southern living, but it was not until I took this course that I felt comfortable being in their presence. Now, I am not only comfortable, but confident in my ability to use a weapon to protect myself and family should the situation arise. Man Alone Tactical not only gave me valuable weapon training education, but peace of mind as well. Also, it was FUN!"

Why Tactical Carbine?

Tactical Carbine shooting, is not target shooting!

Tactical shooting requires the ability to overcome stress, fatigue, equipment failure and environment. It requires that you develop an awareness of your surroundings, and quickly identify possible threats.

" In addition to being well trained, I feel like the cost of the instruction is relatively low and consider the training to be a value. I understand that I have more to learn and will continue to seek training opportunities with Man Alone Tactical." >>> Craig, South Carolina


The focus is on the fight.

As you progress through our tactical pistol courses you will learn battle tested techniques and procedures that produce increased accuracy under stress. We teach weapon handling and target engagement, shooting from cover and field positions, multiple targets, malfunction drills, and much more.
