88 Tactical Instructor Focus – Phil Chaney

88 Tactical Instructor Focus | Phil Chaney

Jake Call

88 Tactical has done a pretty damn good job of collecting the who’s who of the training world. One of those people is their Eastern Region Director Phil Chaney. He serves as an instructor and director for several police and SWAT related courses. Here’s what 88 Tactical has to say about him:


Phil’s combat decorations earned during several deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia include Bronze Star w/ “Valor” device (OEF), Navy/Marine Corps Achievement Medal w/ “Valor” device (OIF), Meritorious Service Medal (OIF), and Navy /Marine Corps commendation Medal. He is a retired Marine Chief Warrant Officer 3 with over 25 years of specialized training and instruction. Phil has been instrumental in the development and instruction of the new State Basic and Advanced SWAT Schools as well as the Single Officer Response to Active Threats (SORAT) curriculum development.


The experience, knowledge, and credentials that Chaney adds to 88 Tactical’s team of Senior Instructors is proof of our commitment to providing our students with the best instruction in the industry.

Jake "Slim" Call

Jake "Slim" Call is one of the two most famous action figures in the world. Contrary to what Swingin' Dick says, he does not like fat chicks. Slim has been a part of Breach-Bang-Clear since about '05, and since then has traveled around the world spreading awesomeness, fighting evil and putting single dancing moms through college. Slim hates hippies, sissies and when the MRE Tabasco leaks into the toilet paper and dries there but you don't realize it until its too late. Together with his comrade Richard "Swingin' Dick Kilgore" Slim manages and directs an eeeelight blogging team of writers that thinks you can be a warrior and a patriot and still be amenable to civil discourse. Incorrigibility breeds contempt.

    Phil is a great instructor, amazing warrior, and puts his heart into every class with that great combination of humility and confidence that few possess. One of the greats.

    I’ve trained and deployed with Phil since 1997. He is one of the best in the business.
