Many duty encounters occur in low lighting or at night, although 90% of typical range training is done during the day. Introducing the element of darkness, shadows, and lights adds an entirely different dimension to shooting tactics. This course covers weapon mounted lights, hand held flashlights, and low-light tactical techniques. Shooters will leave this course with a greatly improved skill-set in an often overlooked area of firearms training.
