Drafting up something for the blog:
TacGun is what we do at Max Velocity Tactical: Tactical Training. TacGun is our hobby, our pastime, our sport if you like. We are TacGunners.
We do not limit ourselves in our training, and our training has immense benefits for us in the here and now, both in our personal and our professional lives.
What does TacGun training involve? As TacGunners, we train in current Special Operations Force (SOF) Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs), modified only by the specific equipment and operating environment that we experience as civilians.
TacGun training has immense benefits, and has direct training impact, on the following areas:
Real Tactical Skills
Performance under pressure
You can TacGun by coming to MVT classes (MaxTac). This takes the form of a selection and mix of tactical training, leadership, physical fitness, live fire and force on force events, some of which focus on the training, some on competition, and some are a mix of both.
Force on Force Team Tactics weekends are TacGun events which mix training, personal development, fitness and competition. These are excellent entry level options into TacGun, with no live fire safety concerns for the new participant,where they will receive challenging training and be guided by more experienced TacGunners.
The next TacGun Force on Force weekend event is on the 4 – 5 November.
As a TacGunner with training under your belt, you can run your own TacGun events and training with your own group on your own range or property. This can take the form of live fire drills or even airsoft force on force team events. It is important to specify that TacGun events utilizing UTM or airsoft differ from actual airsoft or paintball in the level of TTPs and teamwork deployed by TacGunners. This is real tactical combat training.
People arrive at TacGun via many routes. It is clear that in these uncertain times, TacGun offers real tactical training that can be utilized to defend yourself and your family. However, TacGun is not simply an activity aimed at emergency situations, but is an activity for the here and now, with immense personal and group benefits.
Here at MVT, we believe strongly in Liberty and the right to keep and bear arms, without which TacGun would not be possible. Other than that, we are not a political activity or organization. TacGun is an activity for all responsible armed citizens.July 29, 2017 at 12:18 pm #47662JohnnyMacParticipant
It will be interesting to see the reception. From my perspective, this makes it approachable to a wider audience.
Just some helpful input:
-I like the bullet points, maybe instead of “Real Tactical Skills” something like “Real World Tactics”….the industry has abused tactical to the point that everyone thinks they’re tactical if they can mag dump (I’m being vicious).
-I like TacGun a lot, but I’m not sure it works as a verb. Example: GoRuck dudes will say, let’s go for a ruck tomorrow in the park, not let’s GoRuck tomorrow. What the equivalent here is, I’m not sure. Let’s go Gun tomorrow? Maybe it’s not important at the moment.
-Maybe something mentioning that it’s not only “train in current Special Operations Force (SOF) Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs)” but also who it’s taught by, because MVT cadre is top notch and have had extensive professional military careers.
For what’s it worth, I’m a big fan of taking this direction.July 29, 2017 at 12:19 pm #47663wildbillParticipant

Will make suggested edits before it goes on blog. Input welcome.July 29, 2017 at 12:25 pm #47665
I think we TacGun we can be TacGunners, and we can do TacGun, but maybe we won’t go TacGunning, maybe it will be more described by whatever drills we are doing that day.
We all know what this is. This is for public perception. To be effective, we have to be ‘on message’ and spread the message. No bickering. So just as well we are no longer on WRSA.
I will work on patches. I want to hear of people at ranges asking what TacGun is. You guys also have to look the part, ao no hokey shit. Look tactical and practical.July 29, 2017 at 1:02 pm #47666DarkriversParticipant
T shirts and stickers would be a good idea. I’d use both

Something like this…
Current Special Operations Force’s (SOF) train here at MVT in the same Tactics, Techniques and Procedures (TTPs), modified only by the specific equipment that you experience as a TacGunner.
…general idea anyway.
To me there is a fine line between MVT trains in SOF tactics and MVT trains SOF.
The first sounds like bragging the second is low key professional.
They both get the same message across.
For what its worth.
