Panda Tactical started in 2010 as a Firearms Brokerage to attend to the needs of Southern Maryland.  Our Founder, Eliott Cheng, realized that a client-centric to purchasing a self-defense firearm is the most efficient method and is desperately needed. In 2013, after attending local & national training sessions/events, our Founder wondered about the realism and effectiveness in the training materials.  He and some of the other senior members of Panda Tactical’s Consultancy discovered that most of the training was based in methodology.  Most of these courses were simply “Administrative Paper Hole Punching” with no attention paid to the individual’s unique set of circumstances or physical abilities. As we vetted multiple, nationally-recognized curriculum, we needed a blend of client-centric and procedural knowledge based coursework.  After extensive research, development & testing, In 2018, The Panda Tactical Training Division was founded and a cadre of core instructors were trained & certified by the USCCA. Panda Tactical believes that a harmonious blend of frequent, realistic, intuitive and efficient training of the individual with key components of procedural knowledge, and custom-tailored consulting on defensive tools will enable all our clients to properly defend themselves and those they cherish.
