Mission Statement

Our mission at SSD Tactical Training, Inc. is to increase firearms safety and self-defense to our clients as well as enhance the personal safety and awareness to individuals seeking additional training. Safety is our #1 priority. We offer Firearm Safety courses which meet the requirements to obtain your License To Carry Pistols/Firearms (LTC)/ Firearms Identification Card (FID) permits in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, NH, FL and many other states. During our courses you will be handling firearms throughout the course.

In our advance training courses we apply our S.M.A.R.T approach to self-defense. 

Our S.M.A.R.T approach to Threat Perception and Self-Defense

 S- Strategic- Long term or overall identification of goals and means of achieving them. 540 degree of situational awareness (Tactical Mindset/ What if game!)

M- Manipulation- Control or influence (A person or situation) to be clever, turn odds to your favor. (Recognize your advantage and assailants disadvantage)

A- Acceptability- Operational Plan. Determination as to whether the contemplated course of action is worth the cost. (Injuries, Life or Death)

R- Resilient- Being able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions/ situations, staying strong and flexible. (Mental and physical preparedness)

T- Technique- The execution to complete a self-defense skill. (To quickly overcome your assailant)   

We also offer Intermediate, Advanced, Self-Defense Firearms education and training. Our instructors have Law Enforcement backgrounds with years of experience. They are NRA Certified and Massachusetts/ Connecticut State Police Certified Firearms Instructors and police academy Use of Force, Firearms and Defensive Tactics instructors, as well as Simunition Force-on-Force instructors and Utah concealed carry permit instructors. We will cover Massachusetts/ Connecticut General Laws as well as teach the fundamentals of safe gun handling, safe storage/ child proofing, different types of firearms/ ammunition, firearms malfunctions, transportation laws, concealed carry laws and the knowledge, skills and confidence (Positive Attitude) necessary for owning and using a firearm safely.

In today’s society there are hostile acts committed everyday towards innocent people!

Don’t let today be your day – our motto is “IF IT’S POSSIBLE, IT’S PREVENTABLE”!

“It’s better to be prepared and have a skill and not need it then to be unprepared and need a skill and not have it. Stay prepared, Stay Safe.”
