i dont know alot of tactical pistol comps, but here are a few links to a few places that do sniper matches, doesnt get much more tactical than that. they all offer courses by law enforcement/military instructors as well.

where abouts are you located?

waco

TacPro http://www.tacproshootingcenter.com/

not sure this will help but over at Brian Enos' site...

http://www.brianenos.com/forums/index.php?act=idx

there's all sorts of match info but maybe not tactical enough (ipda, ipsc, rifle, 3-gun, etc) but no NFA type matches. But as one of the guys there said once " it ain't tactical unless ssomeone is shooting back"...therefore I'm hoping not to find any of those

good luck

What do you mean by "tactical" as far as expectation in a shooting match or course?

Tac Shoot

When I lived in Columbus, GA and Fayetteville, NC some local ranges had tactical shoots. We would navigate rooms and buildings and react to realistic scenarios involving targets and hostages or obstacles in various positions. We would walk the course three times each time the obstacles and targets would change. We would then be graded on time and accuracy.

Gotcha,

There is a big difference in some IPSC/IDPA competition style shoots and true tactical style shoots.

Some local ranges may put tactical or combat style courses together that have a timing/scoring component to judge against other competitors, but most tactical courses are judgemental and procedural based rather than completion and scoring versus time.

There isn't any formal IPSC/IDPA tactical shooting group out there, but there can be courses of fire put together using the various groups (IPSC/IDPA/GSSF) scenarios that can be quite challenging.

Most ranges are limited to a single axis of shooting due to backstop design, and that limits the depth and breadth of your scenarios. Many also place overly restrictive rules and procedures in place that prevent any meaningful training to take place.
