About Chester Security Group


CSG and our Black Tree Tactical Ranch Training Facility (BTTR) are staged to provide a wide variety of training opportunities. Our 250-acre facility offers a high-tech training center for classroom instruction, covered 25-meter pistol range, 100-meter rifle range, 500-meter designated marksman/angled shooting lane, shoot-house, 4-miles of off-road track and access to a hard surface facility for evasive driving techniques and motorcade operations; with plans for more amenities to come.

Our instruction methods provide learning and reinforcement through action and managed logistics with a low client-to-instructor ratio. You will shoot more, drive more, evade more, exploit more, negotiate more and achieve more. Our instructor cadre is comprised of former military and current/former law enforcement professionals with years of operational experience, both domestically and internationally. We assess your requirements, learn your environment and collaboratively tailor a regimen for your team members in the private, local, state and federal sectors.

The CSG team understands the need for OPSEC: Our clients include government personnel assigned to mission-sensitive units and activities, as well as corporate executives or staff requiring discreet training. We can and will meet any of your organization’s anonymity or security requirements.
