Letter of professional Recommendation for Advanced Tactical Methods

Manco Abbott recently met with Ron Pierini, owner of Advanced Tactical Methods, to discuss training opportunities provided by his company. Due to nature of our business, property management, and the climate of the times, we felt that some type of awareness training was relevant for our onsite employees. After meeting with Ron, and doing one “test” seminar- we immediately scheduled all of our 100 site employees to attend his seminar, “Situational Awareness”…

…At this time, all of our corporation and site employees have attended Ron’s training, and I’ve received nothing but positive responses. The training was applicable to everyone- we’re even considering offering this training to family members. It applies to not only the work place, but also our everyday lives….

…I would highly recommend Ron Pierini and Advanced Tactical Methods for any future training your company might be considering. His ability to translate his wide range of experience into training relevant to the average person, truly made this training one of our most successful.

We look forward to working with Ron and his company in the future.

I recently had Ron J. Pierini speak at a Constellation Brands West Coast Operations event. The subject; Situational Awareness which he spoke about using his vast past experience and kept the room capacity crowd of Executives, Managers, and Hourly employees on the edge of their seats…


He provided information and educated the audience on ways to protect themselves and their families as they live their lives normally… As the presentation wrapped up there was many questions from the audience and high favorable feedback on the presentation…

…If you are looking for someone to speak at a corporate event or to provide more in depth training on Corporate or Executive Security Ron J Pierini is the expert that you should turn to.

As the commander of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office-Narcotics, Vice, and Criminal Intelligence Units, I am always looking for new and innovative training for the unique and challenging environments that my personnel operate in. As with most special units, these teams serve the bulk of search warrants for our agency and engage in high risk activities on a regular bases. Through this endeavor I found Ron J Pierini of Advanced Tactical Methods…


…After careful evaluation and consideration I have found the weaponless defense and tactical shooting models he presented and taught to my front line teams were based on simple concepts that are easily understood, yet highly effective and can be rapidly applied to many tactical applications. These innovative platforms allow the officer to effectively utilize these concepts more rapidly with a higher understanding and overall skill level…

…His courses of instruction are highly recommended to any department.

SUBJECT: Advanced Tactical Methods L.L.C.

My tactical team attended the Close Quarters Pistol Course put on by Advanced Tactical Methods L.L.C… The course was instructed by Ron J Pierini of Advanced Tactical Methods L.L.C… The course focused on lethally engaging assailants within 1 or 2 meter, weapons retention methods, and scenario bases situations.

…Having worked on various tactical teams for approximately 12 years of my law enforcement career and been exposed to various training methods, I can attest to the methods taught in this course as being very applicable to tactical team operators who engage in close quarter searchers and confrontations of aggressive individuals…

…the weapons retention and lethal engagement methods taught during this course are methods which patrol officers can utilize when faced with citizen contact that might turn deadly.

I would like to commend Ron Pierini for his commitment to the Law Enforcement Community in which he has provided a great product for officer safety…


I met Ron Pierini while working as a training Deputy for Fresno County Sheriff’s Dept.  I was a lead Arrest Control Instructor during my six years in that unit. One of the biggest problems I found was that we were teaching the same techniques that I had learned 15 years previously. Ron developed techniques that are easy to learn and are applicable across the board, whether you are using your hands, baton, or firearm….


…I have worked with Academies and many other Agencies over the past 12 years, and it is my opinion the Law Enforcement, in general, is behind the times in what we teach to our Officers…


…In essence Ron’s system took us from old antiquated techniques developed in the 1980’s and brought us up to date…


…I would recommend Ron’s techniques to any agency who deals with combative subjects
