Unlike most firearms training companies Defender Tactical only provides private instruction or training to small groups. This is so we can better serve the client and exactly match his or her needs. Using this business model we are able to greaty reduce the anxienty new shooters may have and give those with a hetic and busy life schedule more flexible training options.
Defender Tactical is a veteran owned and operated firearms training business. David Altenburg is the owner and lead instructor with 15 years of active duty service and 20 years as an FBI Special Agent.
Our training focuses on the combative application of a hard use handgun. Whether you're new to firearms or an advanced shooter Defender Tactical has something for you. We offer a basic class for Everyday Carry of a Concealed Handgun, intermediate training for Close Quarters Combative Handgun and an advanced level Urban Combative Handgun.
We provide private classes limited to four to eight students to keep the instructor to student ratio low. Providing personal attention to each student is key to their individual shooting skill growth. Training can be designed specifically for the group or from our list of classes.
All of our training is conducted either privately or in small groups. Training can be conducted hourly or half/full days sessions. If you don't have your own handgun we can provide one for you.
Our adjunct instructors are true professionals with backgrounds in the military, law enforcement and competition shooting.
We value our industry partners and feel privileged to host some of our favorite links.
If you are interested in scheduling training or have questions about our programs feel free to call or send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
