Mission Statement

Lone Operator Tactical is relentlessly committed to passing on critical skills and real world firearms training to civilian, law enforcement and military clients. We care about the lives of today’s end users and are dedicated to helping them shorten the timeline to perform on demand at the highest levels in order to survive a high intensity armed confrontation.

Training Philosophy

They say “the pen is mightier than the sword”.  This may be true, right up to the point where your life, the life of a family or team member is on the line.  Our shooting and tactical courses are intended to promote superior tactics, techniques and mindset on surviving a high intensity armed confrontation in an increasingly deteriorating society.  Our courses are founded on real world tactics, techniques and procedures that have been tested time and time again and are intended to promote thought on winning and surviving in the most unforgiving circumstances.  Without the proper mind set, tactics and skill set the individual becomes non sequitur, and their weaponry and equipment almost irrelevant.

Lone Operator Tactical takes a holistic approach to firearms training unlike others who look at ‘shooting’ from a myopic standpoint.  The act of firing a weapon is only a small part of what it really takes to survive a high intensity armed confrontation, be it during a home invasion, serving a high-risk warrant by law enforcement, or on the battlefields of Afghanistan.  Understanding the physiological and psychological aspects of a high intensity armed confrontation is critical to your survivability.

We always use the “crawl, walk, run” methodology in all aspects of our training.  This training methodology is the cornerstone of how top tier special operations units train, and ensures our students build a solid foundation of the fundamentals.  This in turn will allow them to build more advanced skills and capabilities upon.

Our teaching methodology is based on end user needs with the goal of maximizing individual capabilities and subject matter retention.

We consider it an honor and privilege to train with you!

Joseph N. Teti

Joe Teti

Joseph is a veteran of both US military and US government special operations units. He is a former Force Recon Marine, Army Special Forces 'Green Beret', and a former operative with the CIA’s Special Activities Division/Special Operations Group.  Less than 1% of all special operations force’s members in all 4 of the armed services combined (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines) have successfully qualified for operational assignment with this unit.  In the event an SAD/SOG operative is compromised during a mission, the US government may deny all knowledge of their activities.  Security experts consider the SAD/SOG the premier covert action, ‘black ops’ unit in the world. 


While serving with the SAD/SOG he deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan and numerous other countries in the Middle East. He planned and conducted a broad range of Direct Action special operations missions covering the entire operational continuum. These missions gave the President of the United States an option when overt military and/or diplomatic actions were not viable or politically feasible. Operations of this nature required a rapid response with a surgical application of a wide variety of unique skills, while maintaining the lowest possible profile of U.S. involvement, in high consequence, zero compromise environments against national level threats. He has held a TOP SECRET-SCI with polygraph security clearance, the highest security clearance awarded by the U.S. government.  He has attended over 40 formal schools regarding special operations. 


He has performed high-risk Personal Security Detail operations in Afghanistan and Iraq for U.S. government and civilian clients. He was also a member of a U.S. State Department close protection team assigned to several high profile government officials and visiting diplomats in Israel. Working out of the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv, and the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem, he operated in high risk areas throughout the country to include Ramallah, Abu Dis, Jericho, The Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
