In the trying times of today it is rare to meet someone of youth who professes to be and is of a true warrior's mindset. I am aware of Tiger McKee as a student, adjunct instructor for Thunder Ranch, and fellow teacher of firearms and tactics. We have stood on range decks together and we have talked of and applied tactics and techniques that will serve and hopefully save our students and clients in potential times of conflict.

Tiger is a young man in years, but yet wise in experience ... he has never been a police officer, he has never been a military man ... yet he has a firm grasp of these fields of endeavor. In my opinion he is not required to have done these things to teach and teach well in his personal chosen field of being a teacher of firearms and tactics.

Yes he is in fact my friend ... but most of all on his own merit he is a teacher of firearms and tactics. I support and endorse him in his work at Shootrite.

SHOOTRITE founder and director Tiger McKee is a lifelong student of personal combat, and is one of the nation's top firearms instructors for armed citizens, law enforcement, military and security personnel. McKee was awarded an expert rating with handgun and rifle by Colonel Jeff Cooper of Gunsite, and has been an adjunct instructor at Thunder Ranch since 1995. He has assisted various agencies in designing their own customized training programs, and as an adjunct instructor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation he currently enjoys teaching some of the world's most elite law enforcement agents.
Tiger's extensive experience has given him a prominent position and voice in the world of modern tactical training. He is a regular guest on Personal Defense TV, a staff writer for SWAT magazine, Tactical Gear magazine, and a columnist for the Tactical Wire, an internet publication. In 2005 he published "The Book of Two Guns," a unique chronicle of ten years of training in the tactical use of the 1911 pistol and the AR-15. The book has been extremely well recieved, and is found on the bookshelves and range bags of dedicated shooters across the globe. His many innovations in tactical equipment, from target systems to flashlight lanyards and custom grips for the AR-style rifle, are also in wide circulation.
Tiger is a regular contributor to several firearms related magazines, and covers a variety of subjects ranging from reviews of training, discussions on the various aspects of combative tactics, to do-it-yourself articles on constructing and modifying tactical gear.
"The Book of Two Guns," a personal training diary written over a ten year study of fighting with firearms, has received great reviews from leading members of the firearms world such as Clint Smith, Brian McCombie, Peter Kokalis and a variety of others writers and instructors.
Tiger is the original designer of a unique portable and rope operated target system produced by Action Targets which spins, wobbles, and serves as a stationary target stand, the "Tiger Ring" lanyard system incorporated into Streamlight's Thunder Ranch Light Package, and the DuckBill Tactical Grip for the AR rifle.

After appearing in several episodes of Personal Defense TV for its third season Tiger was selected to host a weekly segment for their 2009 schedule.

Tiger continues to train, practice, and study the combative use of firearms to insure Shootrite students receive the best instruction possible.
