The Able Story

Able Tactical has existed for many years in the minds of its developers, they were Marines, Soldiers, SWAT Cops, Fugitive Apprehension Officers, Martial Arts Masters, Close Combat Instructors and everyday citizens who saw the need for a different way to learn and deliver personal safety and tactical training.  Shane Clevenger (Able Tactical Chief Instructor) spent a lifetime as a professional shooter, from the US Marine Corps Rifle and Pistol Team, (where he was one of only a handful of Marines to become Double Distinguished since the competition in arms program started in 1903) to protecting and serving his community for years in every aspect of Law Enforcement.  His ways of shooting are classic but his ways of teaching those skills are innovative and unique.  Along with friends, fellow shooters, tactical operators and professional trainers he built the cadre of Able Tactical instructors.  This group had one thing in common, a love for recreational and professional shooting.  Seeing the need for a different way of delivering quality and understandable training for self defense, winning the fight, finishing the fight and utilizing  real world tactics; Able Tactical developed a “truth in training” approach. This approach will raise the bar for those  businesses offering boxed training while falsely claiming to be “operators” and capitalizing on the “gunslinger” persona.  In every way possible Able Tactical is an open book, our Instructors credentials are always available and on our website where allowed.  Able Instructors who are unable to maintain this open policy are not listed, are not used as PR bait and do not act as the Primary Instructors in any course.  We believe you should know who is delivering your training and what expertise they base their abilities on.  Able Tactical is committed to delivering the best in Law Enforcement, Military and Private Sector training.

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” – Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria)
