Rockwell Tactical Group


Make life happen instead of letting life happen.

It’s your responsibility to protect yourself and those you love. It’s our job to give you the tools, the skills, and the mindset to be successful.


We are Rockwell Tactical.

We are a training company based in Central Pennsylvania, teaching all levels of weapons training. We have some of the most qualified, knowledgeable and well-respected trainers in the country who have used their skills throughout their military and law enforcement careers. Regardless of the instructor or the class, though, the foundation of everything we teach is the “Rockwell mindset.” In any situation, the gun is simply the tool. Your mind is the real weapon. And, having the proper mindset can be the difference between failure and success.

Our goal is to encourage everyone to arm themselves with the knowledge and experience to protect themselves and their loves ones. Our classes range from beginner – students who have never handled a firearm – to experienced – those of us who have been around the block but want to keep their skills sharp, and perhaps even learn something new.
