Many use of force incidents occur during hours of darkness. Being able to effectively use your
pistol under low light conditions is a critical skill. This course is designed for both concealed
carry and home self-defense clients. Training begins with preliminary instruction on using a
flashlight in conjunction with a handgun during day light to learn the basic techniques; with
both dry and live fire exercises. Students will try several flashlight positions, then choose which
works best for them. Training progress to other critical manipulation tasks. During darkness the
student’s ability to use a pistol-light source is confirmed on the range with a series of
challenging courses of fire. Even if you have a weapon mounted light on your handgun; it can
fail. Learning to use a flash light as a back-up is a crucial capability.
