    We are a Brick & Mortar Retail shop with Training Center. Tactical Weapons, Equipment & Ammo, plus Professional Training in Self- Defense disciplines.

    Our mission is to provide our clients with a solid skill set for defense as well as State of the Art Firearms and Equipment for their distinct protection strategies in today's environment.

    Converting 65 acres of farmland into a Paintball complex was our first venture into Tactical Simulation training. Hosting scenario driven paintball weekends capturing stolen biological rockets as well as gunning down rouge Terminator robots keep our Highland staff busy from 2004 through 2008.

    2010 marked the first year Highland Tactical began offering classes to the General public. Private classes, scheduled at the clients convenience allowed our instructors to carve their own niche in the Tactical training community.

    Younger shooters require a special type of Instructor. Part Teacher, part Drill Sargent, Highland Instructors have developed a unique way of reaching the younger shooter, presenting the course in a simple, yet incredibly safe environment. Although not all youth shooters use a suppressed MP-5, this particular client is the Instructors son, Highland Tactical currently offers Rimfire Rifle, Archery and Hunter Education courses for shooters 12 and up.

    Highland Tactical offers classes in Handguns, Rifle, Shotguns, Archery, Self Defense, Black Powder Weaponry and Specialty weapons, such as Edged Weapons, Non-Lethal Defensive Weapons and of course the Ultimate Silent Weapon, the Crossbow.
