Stone Cobra Tactical / Northern California

Stone Cobra Tactical Inc. (SCT) was established in Northern California in 2007 and is now located in Sutter County at the base of the Sutter Buttes which is approximately 30 miles North of Sacramento, Ca.

Stone Cobra Tactical Inc, is a business which provides tactical training (home defense, personal protection, Armored vehicle deployment, personal and team tactics) along with basic, intermediate and advanced firearms training, for law enforcement, military, as well as for civilians.

Our concept is "We train to standards, not to time". There are very few business's like this and the ones that are in existence either 1. Teach out dated material or 2. Don’t have enough one on one training time with the student. Our competitive advantage is that we are up to date with current tactics due to our experience and current assignments and we keep class sizes limited to at least one instructor per five students on the firing line in order to give the student what they paid for........"TRAINING".

The founders of SCT have a broad background in tactical training and firearms. All of our Cadre are P.O.S.T. certified instructors and are currently Law Enforcement Officers assigned to their departments SWAT Team or have been SWAT Operators in the past or have previous Military Spec Ops experience. All of this invaluable experience, gives Stone Cobra Tactical Inc. the leading edge when it comes to tactics and firearms training.

South Florida - Tactical U

If you knew you were going to be involved in a gun fight, would you go into it unprepared? Of course you wouldn’t. You would seek out the best techniques and learn them. You would then practice, just like an athlete going into the big game. Except this is not a game, this is life or death.


Our Law Enforcement Certified Fireams Instructors are offering Firearms Training, Safety, Home Defense, Street Survival, Self-Defense, Maritime Security & Defense, Civilian Specific Courses and Close Protection. We teach various tactics and techniques to Public and Private Law Enforcement Officers and civilians alike. Our seasoned instructors are active and former Police SWAT and Military Certified Firearms Instructors. This means we were taught how to teach this information by either the NRA Law Enforcement Activities Division, FDLE or other federal, state and or local agencies. All instructors are recognized by the State of Florida as Police Certified. This makes us confident that if we train Police, we can train you!

Oregon CHL Training

Training courses to obtain your Oregon CHL. Two types of courses are offered, traditional face to face training, typically delivered individually or to small groups, and now an on-line training course offered at a very competitive rate (I am more interested in helping people to get their CHL than making fat profits!).

As many (or all) of you might know, the state dept. and most cities treat guns like nuclear bombs. If you want a MA Class A LTC ($5 legal term there) you need to complete the basic course at a registered institution.

If you live near Framingham/Natick, check out

You can get a Utah (cradle of the 1911!) license to carry which includes a lotta other states too:

Don't know if this has been posted previously, but you need all the help you can get near Boston.

Northern California Training Company

I'd like to introduce Gray Ops Firearms Specialty Training, Inc. We are located in the Sacramento, California area. Since the unexpected closer of Stone Cobra Tactical, (June 2011) by owner Jason Paletta several Instructors got together to continue our passion for sharing safe firearms handling and maintaining a Tactical Edge for our clients.

"Gray Ops FireArms Specialty Training 1*” (Gray Ops) is defining new teaching standards, which reflect a high caliber of expertise, organization, and professionalism.

We at Gray Ops work extremely hard to bring you the most up to date and real life firearms training available in the present day to improve your skills. "We do not rise to the level of our expectations. We fall to the level of our training."

Gray Ops was founded out of a strong desire to provide tremendously practical firearms training as it relates to our current real world situations and environments. Our courses are not administrative in nature; they are specifically designed to place individuals and teams under the type of duress that closely simulates the stress of real-world confrontations.

Gray Ops training team is required to maintain a “show you” capability; not anything required of the students will fall outside of the following sequence:
– Tell You – Show You – Allow You – Evaluate Performance – Repeat –

Our courses have been designed for the beginner, intermediate, advanced, and highly developed operators, not those wishing to simply check the box for another certificate.

Our courses are designed to impart a genuine capability to those who intend to bring the data, concepts, tactics and training methodologies back to their respective departments, teams, and protective operations.

Those attending training should arrive mentally prepared to receive new concepts. They should be prepared to give them a fair evaluation and demonstrate a strong spirit to apply them during the practical training blocks.

Gray Ops team members serve as instructors, mentors, and will always strive to maintain a positive outlook.

If you are considering doing business with Lucy Creek Arms I suggest you do a quick google of "lucy creek arms reviews" and read HOW HORRIBLE this man is. He is a fraud---- has stolen from so so many people especially those in the military community. Please be careful!

have to agree with the above poster....I wrote a report of my dealings with this Tim Miller character, owner of Lucy Creek Arms, on Stay away!!! I am glad my credit card company did a chargeback almost 10 months after the initial transaction. $2500 is nothing to sneeze at.
