Street Combatives - Fighting Without a Gun!
Our good friend Ron Lauinger is one of the best combatives instructors I have ever trained with. If you are interested (and you should be) in learning how to physically protect yourself in a situation that doesn't meet the conditions for use of deadly force, then Ron is the guy to see! Fact is, if you can't fight without a gun you'll never be fully prepared to fight with a gun!
Be warned: his classes are TOUGH! He teaches real-world techniques that will give you the edge you need to walk away alive. Click his banner above and tell him that Three Tango sent you!
Three Tango Firearms Academy
Three Tango welcomes our new contract NRA certified instructors Hal DeSaussure and Angelo Micelli! Both have completed all the necessary qualifications as Basic Pistol Instructors. This brings our current instructor staff to four certified NRA instructors. We also run an apprentice instructor program which allows us to develop the next generation of handgun instructors.
If you are interested in an APPRENTICE POSISTION with us, please drop us an email. Three Tango pioneered this type of instructor training and through this program we develop some of the best firearms instructors in the country.

Warning! All CCW training is NOT the same
If you are considering getting a concealed handgun license (CHL) then you have some serious decisions to make. The first, and perhaps the most important, is where do you go for training.
Unfortunately, this decision isn't always easy. In the state of Ohio becoming a CCW instructor only takes two days and costs a few hundred dollars. There is no state required "certification test" and you don't even have to have a background in firearms! All it takes is a signing up for a class with the NRA – that’s it. You don’t have to receive refresher training each year, you don’t have to quality at a range, you don’t have to have insurance and you don’t even have to demonstrate that you know how to teach!
Many of the "instructors" you will find searching the internet are nothing but "self-proclaimed experts" who have attended a very basic NRA course lasting two days, watched a video or two and maybe read some magazine articles. Some make it a point to tell you they have received “extensive” handgun training in the police academy or military (mostly exaggerated, by the way!) Their motivation for an instructor is simply to make a few extra dollars on the weekend and they honestly don't know the first thing about defensive firearms training.
In fact, one of the first things these "pseudo-instructors" will tell you is they aren't in it for the money - that they have a real passion for firearms training. It’s ironic, but true. They know all the right things to say to convince you that taking their class will make you some gun-fighting ninja who can walk on water and eat bullets.
We have over 22 years of experience teaching defensive pistol tactics and have taught thousands of people just like you!
You want to see real passion? All of our instructors at Three Tango serve a one-year apprenticeship - unpaid! They spend an entire year learning the ins and outs of concealed carry training before they ever teach a class! During that year they coach hundreds of students and spend hundreds of hours training. They don’t do it for the money. They do it to become the absolute best that they can be!
When a Three Tango instructor talks about passion they mean it!
Would you trust your life to someone like this?
You have an important decision to make! Don't find out too late that you've taken the wrong course! This is seriousstuff and you may someday need what you learn to protect your life or the lives of your family.
At Three Tango we let our students do our talking for us. We'd be happy to provide you a list of students that you can contact and learn directly from them they quality of our work!
