Big Announcement

Tactical Yeti Defense and Training is now a dealer for X-Ring Ammunition.  This is remanufactured ammunition using once fired brass.  It is almost good as new.  It is the ONLY AMMUNITION Tactical Yeti Defense and Training will use from now on for training purposes.

If you are looking for Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) for your training purposes, reach out to me by text: 612-704-1545 or Email: [email protected] and let me know your needs.  I have to order by the case, so volume matters.  9mm, .45, .40, .380, 38 SPC, 5.56 and .300 Blackout are all available for order.

I currently have 3000 rounds of 9mm on order and expect delivery in about 2-3 weeks.  If you would like to purchase some of this, let me know.

Prices for the 9mm order:  $27.50/50, $135/250, $260/500 or $500/1 case (1,000 rounds) plus tax.

We are certified by the MN BCA for Handgun Carry Permit classes.  To be certified, we must be a NRA certified instructor.  We require our instructors to get as many certifications as possible.  I have the NRA certifications in Pistol instruction and Range Safety Officer .  i also am a certified pistol instructor through Alexandria Tech.

More certifications will be added in the coming months.  All this is to become a better instructor for you, the participant.
