About Video

We take you to the CSAT (Combat Shooting and Tactics) training facility in Nacogdoches, TX for a one-on-one private training session with Paul Howe. Paul is a high-risk training instructor that served 20 years in the US Army, ten of those in Special Operations. He served as a Tactical Team Leader and Senior Instructor while assigned to Army Special Operations. During his tour in special operations he was involved in several combat actions. One of the most notable was the battle of Mogadishu that was later portrayed in the motion picture Black Hawk Down. Now you can learn pistol handling techniques from Paul right from your home. You will review the weapon system, stance and grip, holster positioning, reloads, loading/unloading, kneeling, transitions, and key shooting drills that culminate to shooting the CSAT pistol standards. You also get an honest and frank discussion with Paul Howe on leadership, training, and the combat mindset that is applicable to the military, law enforcement, and civilian sector.

    Great instructor with lots of real world experience!
    He explains a concept so it makes sense and explains why it works.

  2. Clayton

    Just like Howe’s carbine DVD’s, this is a must have in your collection. He walks you through tactical pistol drills, techniques & know-how to further perfect your operator skills!

    This was my first Paul Howe video and I would recommend it for everyone else. These are the fundamentals that you will always carry with you no matter what level of training or skill you are at. Train often.

    I did not Like the video there is nothing tactical it looks like a sports shooting training.I was expecting some more movements and not only shooting from one place.
    The instructor is excellent and very clear.
    In conclusion, the name of the video does not match the content of it, and the costumer might be misguided.

      You clearly haven’t taken any of Paul Howe’s classes or followed his training. Tac Pistol Operator is based on his class of the same name. Paul doesn’t teach sports shooting training. This video is about establishing your pistol fundamentals. Before you start dancing around the range, you first need to learn how to shoot. As Wyatt Earp said, “fast is fine but accuracy is final”. If the consumer reads the video description and/or watches the trailer, the content is pretty clear.

    Paul is the real deal. Paul is a great instructor.This is a must have for any pistol operator. I plan on sharing this video with my wife.

    Just like everyone has said, Paul Howe is an amazing instructor with plenty of real world experience. I have finally made it through all of his videos and I have to say that something he does very well is make all his training work hand and hand very well. I do find some of his methods a bit different than what I personally use, but they are still great, especially for someone starting out.

    There are many high speed ninja turtle courses out there, That’s fine and good. Paul Howe is humble, if you’ve trained, spoke with or read any of his material, you would know he is a patriot and man of honor. In saying this he is a consummate professional who’s techniques come from a lifetime of experience. This stuff is not the latest trend of gunjitsu, it’s been weighed, measured, and withstood the test of time. It’s brutally efficient makes the pistol skill not seem so impossible to achieve. This stuff works.

  8. Ruben

    A great intro to anyone who has to run a pistol for their job. Transitions well into concealed work as well. very instructional.

  9. John Sorman

    Clear and concise in communicating his methodology, the reasoning behind the methodology and the expected results from the exercises, for me Pauls style of instruction resonates better than others.

  10. JavierJaldin

    Well covered transitions.

  11. brandon talley

    Perfect drills to take to the range no matter what skill level you are.

  13. Nick Dubuque

    Simple, no fluff and no nonsense instruction. Look forward to training with him in March.

    This video – Make Ready with Paul Howe: Tac Pistol Operator is a Great Handgun Training Video. It covers all of the Fundamentals of Pistol Shooting and Paul Howe does an Excellent job presenting these concepts. Reloads, Malfunction Clearing, and Different Shooting Positions are all demonstrated. I own all Ten of the Panteao Productions Training Videos that feature Paul Howe and I highly recommend you add them to your Video Library.
