A.T.A.C. was Established 2017 and designed by a retired military couple with over 46 years of combined service in the US Army Special Operations. They served as enlisted, as well as officers. Travis served as a Green Beret, while Ashley served in Psychological Operations.
Travis and Ashley have multiple combat tours in Afghanistan bringing real world experience to the range from being shot at and having to shoot back!
David is a life long friend of the Worlocks with over 30 years in the construction industry. David built the intricate range complex and is an instructor that embodies the soft spoken, respectful attributes that personifies A.T.A.C.

Just Over Yonder!
Shady Valley, TN
Located in Shady Valley, TN, the range is a repurposed century old Appalachian Tobacco Farm. It has a climate-controlled office with men and women bathrooms. A small break area with a kitchenette is provided for our guests.
With the exception of one range, all our courses are covered from the elements. Most firearm training courses can be a miserable experience dealing with rain, heat and insects. We specifically designed A.T.A.C. to be as comfortable as possible mitigating those environmental distractions.
Feel free to reach out to us anytime with any question you might have—we’re an open book!
