Low Light Neglected Training Issues. We almost never train with our pistol in the dark. We rarely practice the very scenario we are most likely to face. We gather 80% of our information through sight. Interference with our vision has a huge impact on our night fire performance. Most of us are not used to manipulating our pistols in the dark or without looking at them. Time and space perception are affected by the lack of light. There is a natural fear of the dark night that can distort your perception of the threat and play tricks on what you think you see and hear. Our Rods and Cones play the biggest factor on our night vision. Most importantly, low light often makes target identification difficult or impossible. Learn the low light pistol tactics and techniques behind target identification and acquisition.

Ambient Light. Understand like a two sided coin ambient light can work for you or against you. If you are in front of an adversary and there is ambient light behind you, you are exposed. Learn how to properly find your pistol's Sight Picture and Sight Alignment at night, low light or no light, be that complete darkness.

One Hand & Weak Hand Firing. Learn proper shooting stances and or positions to use when working from a cover point, one handed and weak / support sided. At night you will most likely deploy your flashlight in one hand and shoot your pistol from the other. Another example, you could be injured and all you have is your weak hand available. Maybe a mounted weapon light was the best option in this case? This is challenging to achieve in low light due to night vision issues. You will experience this.
