Welcome to ITS Tactical
We don’t limit our content to any particular viewpoint, rather our goal is to become an open-source community of different methods, ideas and knowledge that could one day save your life.
Started in early 2009 as a joint venture between Military Veterans and those serving in the Special Operations community, ITS Tactical has quickly grown into a definitive resource for skill-set information, tactical gear reviews and DIY projects.
“Our gear gets used and abused, and we have to depend on it with our lives…”
Are we biased with what we review? You bet. We typically don’t trash products on ITS unless there’s the potential that a failed product could cost someone in harms way, their life. We draw from our combined military experience and our passion for all things tactical with the information we present.
Recent tragedies have proven time and time again that when you most need it, help isn’t coming. Becoming self-sufficent goes beyond having a stocked pantry when a disaster occurs.
Being mentally and physically prepared along with having the skills, tools and solutions to overcome imminent threats is at the core of all we do at ITS Tactical.
We hope that you benefit from all that you read here.

Our intent with guest posting is to learn more about our reader’s interests, and give those who have knowledge in a skill-set the opportunity to share.

About our Logo
The skull in our logo represents the individual and the notch represents the information, knowledge and solutions being acquired. The shield symbolizes the defense against imminent threats, both foreign and domestic.
Essentially you keep your eyes and ears open to absorb the information at ITS, hence the mouthless skull. Not that we don’t advocate expressing your opinion here, we always have. That’s why we value your comments so much, it helps us learn too.
Our philosophy is that no one is above learning new things, or different ways of getting the job done. If you’re not learning something new everyday, then you’re doing it wrong.
The information, knowledge and solutions you soak up at ITS enable you to better defend against imminent threats, so the logo comes full circle in that regard.
