Who we are
Virginia Tactical was recently formed to provide dynamic handgun skills to shooters who are dedicated to becoming proficient with their firearms and want to push themselves to their max potential.
I am a former infantry Marine with extensive firearms experience. I have four tours overseas including Iraq, Afghanistan, Haiti and southeast Asia in an infantry capacity. I taught at the USMC High Risk Personnel Course for 3 years, and shot on the Marine Corps 3 Gun team for one. I have numerous shooting courses under my belt, and have graduated from multiple federal law enforcement schools. I am also a certified NRA Law Enforcement Instructor in handgun and shotgun. A copy of my DD-214 can be supplied on request.
Mr. Aaron Roth has a similar shooting background and we have worked together for the last 4 years as Marines and providing training to various police agencies, task forces, and other government agencies. Aaron served in the infantry for 4 years and was the HRP Chief Instructor for 3 years. He also shot on the Marine Corps pistol team, where he became a Distinguished Pistol Shooter.

This is a 2 day dynamic handgun course that will provide shooters with a foundation to build a solid shooting background. The course will go much farther than the basics, and will drive the shooter past his capabilities and expose weaknesses and strengths from shooters of intermediate to high level proficiency. We will work on speed and accuracy, and drive home the necessity to deliver accurate shots at high speeds in order to survive a gunfight. Shooters are expected to come to this course with an open mind. We will explore all aspects that make a solid gunfighter from mindset to ground shooting. This is an intensive shooting course, so be prepared to sweat. The staff will demonstrate and perform all the skills they expect the students to perform.
We do not believe that our techniques are the only way to do a certain skill set; rather, we hope you will try our techniques out and put them through the meatgrinder with your current techniques. At the end of the course you are free to take what you decide will work best for you, and leave what you didn't like. Our main focus on this course is giving you the skills necessary to survive a violent confrontation CONUS or OCONUS. You decide if you want to shoot concealed or not, all instructors will be shooting from concealed.
$230: (100 satisfaction gaurantee, at the end of the course if you are not satisfied by the instruction we will refund the full cost)
(If you cannot make the course let us know at least 30 days in advance and we will refund all funds)

The shooter will not only learn a plethora of skills, but in a unique manner. We teach techniques that will serve as a foundation for follow on techniques throughout the course and real life. We will work on economizing your movements and allow you to be proficient in all aspects of gun fighting. Targets get refaced after every skill set - no shooting on dirty targets for a whole day. Our dedicated staff will work with you on an individual level throughout the course to improve your acquisition of your sights at a higher rate of speed. Our primary goal is to teach you how to deliver accurately placed shots at a high rate of speed at threats to your life.
