Train as you fight

The Tactical Rifleman: Karl Erickson

Sergeant Major (Ret.) Karl Erickson, served over 25-years as one of our nation's most elite warriors, a Green Beret in the US Army Special Forces. Today, he is devoted to sharing his experience with others. Tactical Rifleman is the go-to destination for expert advice and training for all things military, tactical, survival, and shooting. Through years of military service as a SOF operator, Karl knows that the most important asset you have in times of stress is a sound mind and body. Preparedness is your best weapon. And nothing prepares you like proper nutrition.


Billed as an SF-style gut check, Operation Valkyrie takes 9-willing volunteers on a 3-day, 4-night force-on-force unconventional warfare tactical operation, deep behind enemy lines. It’s training only the Tactical Rifleman and his former Special Ops cadre could come up with: precision rifle, survival training, mission planning & rehearsals, tactical infiltration & movement on land and water, partisan link-ups, cave operations, RON site & patrolling, evasion & resistance against roving armed patrols and K-9 teams, culminating in a multi-sniper team hit on radio count-down. Oh, and let’s do it in February!  The bad guys don’t stand a chance.
