The following companies and organizations were instrumental in helping bring this years Connecticut SWAT Challenge to fruition. They have generously donated their resources, personnel and facilities in order to support our event. We offer our deepest thanks to all of them for their selfless contributions. Without their help we would not be able to provide the best SWAT training event in the Northeast. Many Special thanks to…
METACON GUN CLUB: For the 5th year, Metacon donated their range and range house for our firearms events. Their ongoing support of law enforcement was in full view as they again came through for us in this years Challenge. Metacon Gun Club has allowed us to use their range, their property and their club to help train this countries SWAT Operators, Police, Military and Correctons units. The FBI and DEA also benefitted from Metacon’s generosity and simply stated, without the Metacon Gun Club, there is NO Connecticut SWAT Challenge. Thank you simply isn’t enough for all they’ve done for us but suffice it to say that town after town, city after city and Officer after Officer is safer and better trained to do their jobs in protecting the citizens of this great land thanks to Metacon.

We thank the general membership of the WHPOA for their generosity in supporting our brothers and sisters in blue!

WESTHILL AUTO: WestHill graciously transported large equipment to and from a number of locations and without their help the best tactical event in the country, would not have been possible.
RILEYS LUMBER: Many of the most trying obstacles were made with lumber provided by Riley’s as were a number of other important structures. They also donated their facility for the fabrication of these structures.
MDC: For the 5th year, MDC has allowed the CSC to host the PT Challenge at their reservoir site on Farmington Avenue.
