Bobby Rader is active-duty law enforcement officer. He began his career in 2008 and spent most
of his career working S.W.A.T, Narcotics, and Counter Drug operations. One of his greatest
responsibilities has been designing and implementing, advanced firearms and tactics training for
fellow law enforcement officers. Bobby has had the distinct privilege and honor of working with
some of the brightest, brave, and capable tactical operators in the country.
Bobby spent years planning and executing one tactical operation after another and did so at a
high operational pace. On a daily basis he and his team were faced with one use of force decision
after another. His time as an instructor, coupled with his operational experience, has provided
him an advanced knowledge of legal and tactical use of force and self-defense issues.
Over the years, Bobby has watched the state of California get weaker and weaker on crime. He
began looking into the kind of training the public had access to and was not satisfied. He knew
he could do it better.
Practical Training Solutions was born for this purpose. Bobby wanted to provide people with
affordable and quality training they just could not find anywhere else.
People who are not associated to Law Enforcement have a lot of anxiety and feelings of
insecurity regarding what they can and cannot do to defend themselves and their families.
Practical Training Solutions is here to remove those feelings through a higher level of service
