TACTICAL DEFENSE OPTIONS

Gun Buyer’s Resource Page: Self-Defense, Home Defense, Concealed Carry & 2nd Amendment Rights

Self-defense is more about knowledge than it is about the hardware you use. If you are looking to protect yourself, your loved ones and exercise your right to bear arms, you also need to educate yourself — get the training, follow the laws, know your rights.

In the Chattanooga area, there are numerous companies and groups that offer gun safety and certification. Many of these organizations also offer a range of courses (beginner to advanced) in self-defense, tactical solutions and competitive marksmanship.

Our partnerships with regional law enforcement agencies, manufacturers and distributors, allow us to provide up-to-date info on issues that directly impact gun owners and shooting sports enthusiasts.

Call 800-729-6466 or email info@soldoncompass.com for tactical items info, or follow the links below for the latest in auction news.
