About The Event

Low Light Handgun:

This four-hour course is designed for civilians, law enforcement and security contractors who have a significant amount of tactical training and regularly practice. This is not a beginner’s course. THIS CLASS IS A MUST FOR ANYONE WHO CARRIES A HANDGUN FOR SELF DEFENSE! It’s critical to understand that 80 percent of all information that the brain receives is acquired through sight. The inability to see, greatly reduces our capacity to make timely, sound, and accurate decisions. Most handgun training occurs during daylight, however, it is well documented that most shootings occur under low-light conditions. So why not train for the most probable and realistic real-world scenario? Want to see what it looks like?

Take your tactical self-defense training to the next level and learn to protect yourself in low-light situations. Our professional shooting instructors will demonstrate the importance of being able to tactically defend yourself in low-light situations, as well as teach you to properly defend yourself.
