    We are hopefully going to be there by nightfall. Not sure about dinner plans, I'm just a passenger.

    The 2019 Tactical Conference was a huge success, despite the weather’s efforts to dampen our spirits along with our clothing.

    We had 235 attendees from literally all over the US, plus 43 professional trainers and SME’s conducting training blocks, plus 22 Rangemaster staff (range safety officers, match personnel, and admin). Everything went smoothly and on schedule.

    We had two pistol matches to allow attendees to test their defensive skills. Many of the attendees opt to stay in classes and not shoot the matches, but 134 did shoot the Standards Match on Friday and Saturday. With a possible score of 200, we had a four way tie for Champion, with four perfect 200 scores, achieved by Brian Hill, John Johnston, Ryan McCann, and Jason Ryan. Congratulations on very good shooting! The top female shooter, out of 20 ladies, was Cindy Bowser, and Wayne Dobbs took the High Lawman honors.

    On Sunday, we had a “man against man” tournament for the top 16 men, and a “woman versus woman” shoot-off for the top 8 ladies. The men’s champion was Rick Remington, and Cindy Bowser again reigned over the ladies.

    Special thanks to Martin Hoffert, John Barb, and Aqil Qadir who headed up the range and match staff. Great job!

    During the three days of the event, there were classroom blocks of instruction from 2 to 4 hours in length by Massad Ayoob, Lee Weems, Claude Werner, Darryl Bolke, Karl Rehn, Tiffany Johnson, and many others. There were hands on medical blocks, including those by Caleb Causey and Dr. Sherman House, and hands on training in empty hand defense and weapon retention by Cecil Burch and Fletch Fuller. Chris Fry conducted small knife training, there was OC training by Chuck Haggard, and saps and blackjacks were covered by Larry Lindenman. Live-fire shooting classes included a lever gun class with Lee Weems, shotgun training with Tom Givens, pistol work with John Farnam, Paul Sharp, Brian Hill, Wayne Dobbs, and others, and a carbine block with John Hearne. Craig “Southnarc” Douglas provided a live scenario based force on force class with Simunitions gear. This is just a sampling of the many class segments that were available, with 7 or 8 training blocks going on simultaneously around the training complex. There were too many trainers to list them all here.

    Big thanks to Brannon LeBouef and the NOLATAC crew for all their hard work keeping the ranges running and the food and beverages flowing throughout the event.

    The 2020 event will be announced in May. Registration will open at that time. This event fills every year well in advance, and this year we turned away over 70 who waited too late to register. We’ll have an announcement and a brand new Tac Con website with all the information you will need at that time.

    This year's conference really was excellent! A lot of new friends, and it was terrific to see the familiar friendly faces.

    This was my first time attending (Two old friends and I used it as a reunion of sorts) and it was great! If anyone is on the fence everyone is friendly and you can’t beat the lectures and classes for the cost. Highly recommended.
