Elite Tactical Advantage
Elite Tactical Advantage (or ETA) is based in the heartland of America. Specializing in high-end tactical accessories, we work to satisfy a broad customer base: individuals, law enforcement, OEM, government and military.
Our Mission Statement
and manufacture, from the highest quality materials, a superior tactical product for demanding customers.
“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.” In a nutshell... simplicity. The simple tends to work because it is based on understanding rather than optimization. We design our products to work, and to coexist with their users in harmony. We create the instrument that is flawless so the operator can conduct the symphony. An overture where the curtain call is success and survival, and failure is not an option.
We got tired of the same old thing being re-hashed over and over in the marketplace. Magazine cover stories having the same copy on different products three months apart. The stagnation had to end, there truly can be only one, 'Best'.

What does the insignia represent?
The Silver Star is an honor awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Army, is cited for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing foreign force, or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.
Within the star is the spearhead of a Praetorian spear. "Caesar discovered with the Legio X Equestris, a powerful unit more dangerous than its fellow legions was desirable in the field. When Augustus became the first ruler of the Roman Empire in 27 BC, he decided such a formation was useful not only on the battlefield but in politics also. Thus, from the ranks of the legions ...throughout the provinces, Augustus recruited the Praetorian Guard."
The circle encompassing the Silver Star and Praetorian spear head, represents the symbol for fire. The ring of fire tempers all within it and strengthens our purpose and resolve.
