At a Glance
After four years in the US Army's 3/504 Airborne Parachute Infantry regiment, Tommy Taylor continued serving his country and community by joining local law enforcement. Seeing firsthand how essential it is for officers to possess tactical skills to protect themselves and those around them, he founded Texas Tactical in 1997. At his facility, the now-retired patrol officer, alongside training manager Gary Fitzgerald, teaches fellow police and members of the military basic and advanced skills such as moving while shooting and close-quarter combat. For civilians, he imparts more-basic knowledge such as firearm safety and upkeep, reloading, and, in a low-light shooting class, how to fire a weapon while holding a flashlight in one hand.
