ABOUT THE TACTICAL GAMES
If climbing obstacles, running with a rucksack on, carrying heavy things, and shooting from unconventional positions excites you, than The Tactical Games is for you!

The Tactical Games were created to provide a venue to test the skills and readiness of tactical athletes from all backgrounds. Whether you are military, LEO or a civilian gun enthusiast you can compete in The Tactical Games.

It does look like the Tactical Games pushes the envelop with its obstacle level of difficulty. I am glad they have an over 45 division given the difficulty. Waco is tough enough with its 8 foot wall.

I have not seen anything in their rules prohibiting the use of force on the walls. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Though it seems that the walls aren't 100% vertical. That helps. :)

Anyone done both, the Tactical Games and what the heck? If so, how do they compare (aside from TG not allowing optics)?

Tried to type the acronym for Waco Tactical Fitness but it came out to “what the heck” above.

If I was 30 years younger and 100 lbs lighter I think it would be fun

Sounds like it may be too much fun to pass up! Age is just a number. I’m in my 50’s and have had my share of injuries and health problems, but as long as I can still move around I figure why pass up the chance? I have no delusions of being competitive with others, many of whom may well be young, fit former Special Forces types. But if it gets me out of the house to train for something, at least it allows me to compete against myself and learn more.

Looks like they actually have a "Master's Class" based on age. Just FYI.

Thanks, I was trying to research that.

The games apparently only allow 5.56. I emailed to see if 300BLK is acceptable, and they replied no. I'm betting its to easily track that you are using proper ammo (no competitive loads). I'll have to build out a different AR to do this one... oh darn. :)

Looks fun.


edit: The no red dots or RMR on pistols rule may be a deal breaker though. Plenty of people use RMRs on carry guns these days and from what I can tell its pretty much unanimous across the spec ops community. Thats a weird rule. :/
