HOME / ABOUT US

See Our Proud history

Tiburon Tactical was officially formed in 2017 after it became apparent that a more professional approach to firearms training was needed. While at a local range, Sean encountered a couple shooting together. It was clearly a first date, and the man was teaching her how to shoot. Unfortunately, he was teaching her every bad habit and movie technique he knew. From grip and stance to trigger press, everything he showed her was wrong. Tiburon Tactical was created to provide a professional, safe and fun learning environment.
With nearly 70 years of combined experience, we can help you start or continue your firearm and self-defense journey.

SEAN GREENLEE

Like many shooters my father started me young. He was a pistol and rifle competitive shooter for the US Air Force and…

DERICK RUFF

Like many people, my firearm journey began when I was a kid. My dad started me off on a bb gun and I moved up to larger calibers…

I had never shot or even held a gun before and took a private lesson out of curiosity. Sean was very patient and answered all my questions and I had a great time shooting ! I think I may have found myself a new hobby , and I am certainly much more informed. I will be back for sure !

Mara Tudor Ward

Sean is a great instructor. Very thorough and covers all the information well. He answered all of our questions and had a lot of patience. He adjusted my grip and helped me to be able to shoot the .45 without any problems. I am now more comfortable and confident with my gun and I am shooting with much better accuracy than I was before the class.
