Meet Our Staff

Co-Owners Dan & Joan Suk

Dan and Joan Suk have been long time firearms collectors and enthusiasts from the Hunterdon County area. Over the past four years they saw the need for an indoor facility where the public could meet and also practice marksmanship with firearms. Both share a background in business and engineering and are firm second amendment supporters. Dan and Joan are very proud of their facility and want to welcome all levels of shooting enthusiasts to visit the Tactical Training Center and see what it has to offer!
