About Us

We, at Texas Tactical Training Group, believe in a real life approach to training.  It is not enough to learn how to shoot holes in paper. We believe that “perfect” practice makes perfect. So, we must train for real life.  We are dedicated to providing a quality, safe, and professional training environment to every student.  We can  help any level of shooter from beginner to experienced.

Texas Tactical Training Group is a tactical shooting range and training facility for all levels.  We offer training to civilians, private security, police, and many government agencies.  We also offer Platinum memberships for access to ranges every day of the year.

Texas Tactical Training Group is proud to be the home of Sheepdog Defense Group (B19070).  Sheepdog Defense Group  is a professional church security group utilizing volunteers to guard their flocks.  We also host Sheepdog Academy (F01352), which is a state recognized private security training school and continued education school.  All of our instructors are state certified.

We are also an FFL location and sell firearms and accept transfers.  We will soon be a class 3 dealer as well.
