Shifting gears.

Friends, after more than a decade, F3 Tactical will be shifting our retail storefront to online sales and contract work. F3 isn’t going away, we’re just making changes to our business model to fit the current, economic environment. The storefront will close on Friday, August 26th and our web site ( ) will remain up and running. The web site is a lot of work-in-progress, so we ask for your patience with that 😊

Our F3 Social media presence will continue, as we will use it to benefit the online sales piece of our future. We will also continue to host and inform our friends in this community about local training events since there are so many good opportunities in this area. Our dog rescue mission will remain intact, and we look forward to sharing our future foster pups with all of you here. You are a big part of that rescue mission, and we are honored to continue that work with all of you by our side.

For Chief and I, and the rest of our family, these last ten years have been some of the best of our lives. We’ve been blessed with the most wonderful customers and industry partners anyone could ever ask for, and with so many of you becoming our dearest of friends. Of course, there was the immense joy we had of sharing Bolt with all of you for nine of those years. That was a very special part of our time with you, and we will cherish those memories forever.

God bless you folks, it has been quite an adventure here at the shop, and we are so grateful to all who have shared it with us. We hope to maintain a service to you in the online realm and we will definitely see you out on the range!


Did you miss out on Handcuffing, Baton and OC spray training today? YUP!


I often hear from folks who are shocked that they have to do a 4-hour in-service course to renew a basic certification. Here is some certs I’m doing just in the past week or so:

DCJS 32i Personal Protection Specialist In-Service
DCJS 02i Private Investigator In-Service
DCJS 12i Compliance Agent Renewal
DCJS 01i Security Officer In-Service
DCJS 09R Advanced Handgun Requalification
DCJS 10R Patrol Rifle Requalification
DCJS 08R Shotgun Requalification
NRA Fi****ms Instructor Renewal
American Red Cross FA/CPR/AED Instructor Renewal
Maryland Private Detective Agency
Maryland Security Guard Agency
Virginia SCC Renewal
Multiple multi-million dollar insurance policies renewed and annual premiums paid

Please show some respect to the company owners out there providing jobs and who take on the responsibility of hiring people and making sure people get paid so they can take care of their families. They did what I did - they risked their financial well-being to start a business and dumped everything they had into this business they created knowing full well they likely wouldn’t make a dime for a long time but while they’re going through all of that, they had to make sure their people were taken care of while not being paid themselves.

As for the owners, especially in this industry, you know we’ve had to deal with some serious performance and professionalism issues with personnel. Don’t get distracted from investing in the ones who are kicking ass for you and representing your brand so well.
