Courses for every goal, every skill level, every scenario.
Learn how to respond.
At 88 Tactical, we believe that when a crisis occurs, civilians on the scene are the true first responders. Knowing what to do while the Police/EMS are on the way can have a dramatic, positive, and sometimes lifesaving impact on the outcome of an emergency situation. Our goal is to help prepare you to prevail in any emergency or crisis situation.
Let our expert instructors give you the knowledge and tools to defend yourself and your loved ones. 88 Tactical recruits and retains the industry’s most experienced instructor cadre from the special operations military, law enforcement, and fire and rescue – many of whom continue to serve today.
Meaningful, Challenging, Fun.
Every civilian training course 88 Tactical offers is meant to be meaningful, challenging, and fun. We want to empower you to protect and defend yourself and your loved ones, and enjoy the learning process. We have training classes for all ages and experience levels.

Training Course Offerings
Take your shooting experience to a new level with state-of-the-art ranges, available at both our Omaha and Tekamah facilities. The indoor ranges at our Range & Readiness Center – 10 public lanes and 10 reserved for members only – are equipped with a pressurized air filtration system. Each brand new lane is well-lit and built to accommodate two shooters and up to .308 FMJ ammunition.
Visitors to our Tekamah location will have access to three separate outdoor ranges: a 35-yard, 100-yard and 400-yard range.
My favorite class is the primal defense class because I see the greatest amount of change in the students in the shortest amount of time. Intermediate and advanced carbine courses would be a close second because they are physically and mentally challenging. My favorite every day piece of equipment is my Eidolon holster for my Glock pistol. It combines good retention, fast draws, and excellent concealment.
One of my favorite classes to teach is the Basic Survival Skills. For most folks it is an empowering outing that is challenging, but still executed in a controlled environment. I really enjoy seeing the look of accomplishment come across someone’s face when they build their first fire on their own. I also like to see the mixed classes of males and females. The Woods does not care who you are, it is gender neutral. You either succeed or fail. It is my job to see you don't do the latter.
SAFE, INFORMATIVE, FUN. I took the Concealed Carry class with Trey and he was ABSOLUTELY awesome. He made it a point to our class that men aren’t the only ones that should know how to safely and legally own and operate a handgun. They go above and beyond what they’re supposed to teach both in the classroom and at the range. I definitely recommend getting your permit here, especially to my female friends that are interested but a little apprehensive about going. Thanks, Trey for an awesome class and Trevor for helping our class at the range!! You were both awesome!!
I took my daughter to 88 tactical today so she could experience shooting a gun for the first time. I couldn't be more impressed with the entire staff and the facility. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. I've been to various shooting clubs throughout the area and by far, 88 tactical is the best. I met one of their range officers today named Nick. He had some suggestions and ideas that helped with my daughter's shooting stance. It made a ton of difference and he was very nice. My family and I will definitely be back.
I was definitely impressed! I was afraid of handling a gun prior to my class. I had no idea how to even hold the thing, nor what the model even was. That is how clueless I was at the start of the class. I still have a lot to learn, but now I am not afraid to learn or practice. The teachers were serious and respectful, but also able to interject some humor. I received the class as a Christmas gift from my father and am looking forward to my next class. Thanks Tim and Lynn!
More than just a range, 88 Tactical offers a unique club experience, with an appeal to gun ownership community; 88 Tactical gives shooters and gun enthusiasts a place to train marksmanship, develop practical skills, and be around others who want to cultivate a lifestyle of protecting what is important in life. 88 Tactical has trained professionals to instruct classes on pistol and rifle marksmanship, hand-to-hand self-defense, scenario training, etc. I enjoy weekly trips to the range, and will be developing my skills in survival and scenario response at this facility. Highly recommend.
Every time I come to this place I’m more and more impressed. The caliber of staff is incredible and they don’t let it go to their heads. So many range employees have egos through the roof and act like you’re an inconvenience - not here; super knowledgeable and very friendly people. I definitely plan on becoming a regular here and highly recommend 88 Tac.
Husband and I went in for our 8 year wedding anniversary to try something we have never done before. I’ve not held a gun let alone shot one. We had the time of our lives and even though it scared me at first, Josh our instructor and safety man made sure I was comfortable. By the end my husband was already planning his next visit and could see myself tagging along. Thank you again for an awesome evening out!! Anniversary to remember.
I've been to many ranges in Omaha, but 88 Tactical is hands down the best I've been to. It's like a country club, there is shopping, food that is delicious, and if you're lucky enough to get to the founders club there is a bar. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, I had a problem with my handgun not feeding correctly and they took the time to check it out and clean it up for me. This is a great place for just shooting but they also offer classes that are by far the best I've ever taken. If you haven't been there yet, give it a try and I promise you'll love it.
