…it has so many meanings. Many of them entirely incorrect, even when used correctly. You know what I’m talking about. Tactical is the most common marketing term in the firearms/training/outdoor/tactical industry. In fact, I’d venture to say it’s the worst term in those industries’ lexicon except for all the other words.
I started an article on The Mag Life a couple of years back on that very subject. It’s something more than a pithy social media post and less than a full-blown diatribe, but despite its somewhat ambiguous summation, I think it’s worth reading — not necessarily for my opinioneering, but definitely for the perspective of some of the folks I quote (or who contributed to) the article. Kyle Lamb, Joe Dawson, Pete Nealen, and others have weighed in.
A few of those are shown below.
