Columbia, SC, March 28, 2019 – Panteao Productions will be hosting 4 Free 2-Day Tactical Carbine and Pistol classes at the Panteao range facility in Swansea, SC. These classes are open exclusively to law enforcement agencies across the state of South Carolina with each class accommodating 12 police officers representing multiple agencies.

The program is called Operation Blue and was started by Robert Keller from Gamut Resolutions. Robert is a firearms instructor with a background in the US Army Special Operations. In fact he is currently still active duty. Operation Blue is our way of giving back to law enforcement by providing them with free training in the use of carbines and handguns.

Panteao Productions has received support from the following companies to help put on this event: Walther Arms, STI, Magpul, Crimson Trace, Blackpoint Tactical, Inceptor Ammunition, Image Ink, and Action Target. We greatly appreciate their involvement.
