  • Comfortable clothing and footwear suitable for training outdoors.

Missouri State Law was amended on August 28th, 2014 removing the requirement to train with two guns. You may now select one handgun to train with.

Important Notes about Firearm Selection

  • 22 single-action revolvers (western style) are a poor choice for self-defense and these are not allowed due to the prolonged time that is required for loading, unloading, and reloading – particularly for the novice shooter.
  • Subcompact or ultra-small pistols that fit in the palm of your hand (such as 22’s, 25’s, 32’s, and many 380’s) are NOT a good choice for many people.  If your pistol does not allow you to make a secure grip with ALL of your fingers you will not have as positive an experience as the person with a full-grip handgun.  A too-small pistol can be dangerous for the operator!

  1. Brian Bangs

    Mr. Burke and his crew have put together what in my opinion is the best CCW course in the state. This class goes above and beyond the legal minimums required to attain your CCW permit. This really is more of an introduction to defensive pistol class that also happens to meet the requirements for the permit. You will come away from this class with a much deeper knowledge and more experience than other classes that are just designed to meet the minimum criteria. You will not go wrong choosing this class.

  2. Charisse Bauer

    Todd’s courses are well thought out, efficiently executed with pertinent interjection of real life experience.
    Safety is top priority.
    Coaching crew from all walks of life, work hard with each individual from beginner/proficient/expert level without making anyone feel inadequate.
    I am truly impressed with how much tactic/technique they trust students with.
    Therefore I trust these people, their program & without reservation recommend any of their courses.
    God bless & be safe!!

    I am thoroughly impressed with this course and the detail involved! This class went above and beyond my expectations. Todd covered all of the bases, from firearm laws to safety recommendations, and beyond. It’s also a bonus that this is class is for all skill levels and anyone is welcome to attend. All of the coaches were very informative and I walked away with several great pointers I will be adding to my tool belt. I look forward to participating in more courses and I will definitely be recommending Tactical Specialties to anyone looking for further training or knowledge on firearms and self defense. Thank you Mr. Burke & his coaches!

    I just wanted to say that my father and I greatly enjoyed the CWW1 course as that was the most training we have had thus far. He and I have been discussing when we both will have time to get to your CCW2 course. That course material really peaks our interest! It was great learning from you and your coaching staff, as well as meeting some of your family. We look forward to training with you and your team again!
