Product Review & Development
TACSIM Media Group provides a unique opportunity allow a third party (TACSIM) to review your products and assist in identifying and targeting those who will benefit the most. TACSIM will of course test your products and provide insight into areas for improvement. For products that hold up, TACSIM Personnel will demo these products at events and training courses that we are invited to. This opportunity places your products, as well as someone willing to truthfully stand behind it, in front of potential customers that will witness your product in action. We will not promote or demonstrate what we don’t believe in.
Everyone at TACSIM is hand picked for their ability to put aside their own knowledge and habits to review alternate methods of training without prejudice. By allowing our personnel to attend your course as a student, we can develop a review of your course not just as some special guest but as student eager to learn and take everything you can throw at them. Once the course is over, TACSIM will develop an in depth article, detailing your course without giving away the secrets of your success.

TACSIM Online Magazine
Tactical MilSim Magazine, better known as TACSIM, is the first online publication of its kind—no other magazine has dedicated itself to the law enforcement, military simulation and training community. Our staff, hand selected by U.S. Army Ranger MSG (Ret.) Howard “Mad Max” Mullen, is comprised of highly regarded professionals from law enforcement and military special operations.
As the global war on terror perseveres, many military and law enforcement professionals continue to search for better, more cost-effective ways to develop and maintain their tactical skills. As a result, the tactical training community is now experiencing tremendous growth with military and law enforcement personnel exploring various types of training technologies for close contact force-on-force training. And you can find them in TACSIM Magazine!

What Our Readers are Saying
“I would like to begin by saying that this last edition of Tactical Mil-Sim Magazine is one of the best I have read yet. I am thoroughly excited for what is to come. I attend the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, NY. As one of the five federal service academies, our midshipman graduate with a four year degree with a B.S. in Engineering or Maritime Transportation, receive a US Coast Guard License to sail on Commercial Vessels, and receive a military commission into Active or Reserve for any of the military branches. In the past three years, the academy has created a rather competitive Mil-Sim Team. The team has a membership of over 30 young men and fields at least two squads of 6 men and one command squad of 5 for most events. It is the mission the USMMA Airsoft Team to encourage and facilitate the proper military training through Airsoft operations, while emphasizing the importance to unit cohesion and personal strength. The team utilizes Airsoft as an effective training tool for military simulations and recognizes the importance of training in the context of the military. With that being said, I would like to say it is an honor to have someone as experienced as you representing the Mil-Sim Community and I can speak for my team when I say that we are all excited as to the future of our training and the sport of Mil-Sim.” – Midshipman Ryan
I’m the commanding officer of a mil-sim team and I really wanted to expand and let everyone know that we like to play here too. We are very set on military simulation so why not publish articles in the best mil-sim magazine ever? – Mike (New York)
“I am sending this message because we would like to advertise for you on our website, myspace and newsletter. I have read your articles and really support all that you do.” – Jay (Maryland)
“Thank you very much for that incredibly fast turn around. I received my copy today. Nice to see the magazine back. I haven’t had much chance to read yet but I saw the review of Sasha and had to tell you. My wife’s name is Sasha and she has a real steel AK-47 that she named Sasha Jr so she and I found that article very heart warming. Keep up the great work. I’m looking forward to seeing more. ” – Travis
“Many thanks for the magazine!! The only thing that is in my hands is to congratulate for your quality and to brighten by the shared philosophy about mil-sim. This has been a huge surprise!!!” – Jaime (Spain)
