The low stakes Poker Room near me $1/$2 Hold em ,has almost 75% of players calling the flop.
I believe I have learnt to play fairly tight , how do I amend my game (or not) to deal with this shoot out.

The only way to avoid these loose players is to move up on the limits.  Players are more conservative at $3/6 and $5/10 tables.

The way to deal with the loose players in $1/2 tables is to loosen up your game as well.  Learn to play more hands preflop and master the concept of implied odds.  This also means you will see more variance in your game and you will be forced to play a lot more weak hands, like lower suited connectors.  But overall, you have to do this in order to succeed.  Just playing supertight will NOT get it done on a $1/2 table.

Tighten up a lot.  I assume if your playing at this limit, you know what that means.  Muck small pocket pairs, and high unsuited cards.  play high suited cards from later positions, and obvious premium hands
