                                        Introduction
Thank you for considering a new future with Threat Dynamics. Our company was founded by
a combat veteran of the war on terrorism - Sergeant Ryan Tuttle. SGT Tuttle’s vision is simple.
Build a state-of-the-art firearms and self defense training facility using the most advanced
training equipment and techniques available, and make it open to law enforcement officers,
military personnel and civilians alike. Make this training safe, cost effective, entertaining, and
profitable.




The world continues to ask more and more from those who protect us on foreign and
domestic soils and even in our own homes. SGT Tuttle’s goal is to provide access to the
highest level of training possible. Not only training with firearms and self-defense, but also in
decision making skills under high stress and in the difficult situations that happen every day.

America is built on a foundation of freedoms; with the right to bear arms being one of ever
growing controversy. With this in mind, it is important now to train our citizens (including law
enforcement officers and military personnel) to safely use firearms and defensive tactics. We
each have the right to own and carry firearms, but it is the responsibility of the individual to be
properly trained on how to use them. This characterizes the need for many more Threat
Dynamics simulator training facilities around this great nation.




                                                                                     fran app letter 10-8-26
