TAC MAN targets were invented as a direct result of an enlightening experience during a combat tour in Lebanon. During this experience, it was discovered that momentary “brain freeze” can occur as a result of the abrupt transition from paper training targets to live targets, during a first surprise attack by the enemy.
During research on the subject of armed encounters, it became apparent that most deaths of police officers occur in the first armed encounter where the officer is surprised by the attack.
Since surprise attacks can occur in military, law enforcement and everyday civilian encounters, TAC MAN targets were invented to bridge the gap between paper and live targets by making training more realistic. This more realistic training is intended to reduce or eliminate the short “brain freeze” that occurs after the surprise, enabling the attacked to respond more quickly and with authority.
