Tactical Firearms Academy is a staunch advocate for safe and responsible gun ownership.  We believe CWP holders should be held to a proficiency standard and be required to demonstrate that proficiency similar to the requirements placed on law enforcement and armed security personnel.  To this end we have developed CTS – Conditions, Tasks and Standards.

We have developed the CTS criteria for the three major disciplines: pistol, rifle, shotgun and now require students to demonstrate their proficiency in order to train with TFA.  Listed below are the CTS requirements for each of the disciplines.

Load out: Three (3) magazines with 5 rounds in each

Conditions:  One (1) 12″x16″ target at 12 yards.  A no-shoot target is placed behind the primary target.

Tasks:  From the draw engage the target with 5 rounds from a standing position, 5 rounds from a kneeling position and 5 rounds from a standing position – in that order.

Standards:  Target must be engaged with a minimum 13 hits, within the established par time of 16 sec without hitting the hostage target in the background.  Must pass twice in a row or 3 out of 5 attempts.

Load out: 10 rounds of birdshot, 2 rounds of slug ammunition

Conditions: Two (2) 6″x 6″ targets at 10 yards left and (2) 6″x 6″ targets right. The 2 sets are 10 yards apart, one (1) 12″x18″ target at 40 yards in the center.

Tasks: Shotgun loaded cruiser ready with 4 or 3 rounds of birdshot, remaining rounds on your body. Engage each 6″x6″ target with one birdshot each, perform a slug exchange and engage the 18″x24″ target, re-engage the 6″x6″ targets with one birdshot each. Reload and repeat the drill. Note: Slugs rounds may not be pre-loaded.

Standards:  Engage targets with a minimum of 10 hits within the established par time of 40 seconds. Only two misses are permitted and both cannot be the slug shots.  Must pass twice in a row or 3 out of 5 attempts.

Load out: Three (3) magazines with 5 rounds each

Conditions: One 18″x24″ target at 50 yards
