Low Light Pistol

One Full Day

Prerequisite: Tactical Pistol Level 1

Class Size: 8-20

When you hear statistics like "77% of defensive shootings occur in diminished light," it should make you wonder if you are prepared to defend yourself and your loved ones when it's not sunny and beautiful outside. If you carry a gun, the chances of you having to use it lean strongly to the dark side. If you have not thought about your choice of sights, handheld versus weapon-mounted white light selection, and the proper techniques of how to use them so that you don't get shot, then this course is a must. The curriculum focuses strictly on fighting in a low- to no-light environment.

The following topics will be covered during the course:

Effects of darkness & light on the human eye

Night sight selection

White light selection and associated equipment

Methods of carry/implementation (Harries technique, FBI technique, Surefire)

Reloading/malfunctions with a handheld light

Direct lighting techniques (Strobing, Sweeping)

Indirect lighting techniques (Painting)

Lighting in an open air environment

Lighting in a CQB environment

and much more!
