This 6-hour course covers fundamental considerations for deploying a handgun with white light under reduced-light and low-light tactical situations. We will discuss advantages and disadvantages of hand-held and weapon-mounted lights (WMLs), important features of lights, search and movement techniques, and tactical considerations in altered-light environments. Range time will incorporate skills and techniques learned with practical live-fire drills that will challenge shooters under low to moderate environmental stress.
We will spend approximately 3 hours in a classroom environment, including a half-hour meal break with discussion. Range time will cover hours from twilight to full dark, starting around sunset. A heated shelter will be available between drills, but the majority of range time will be outdoors, and students should anticipate cold temperatures. This is real-world Alaskan training at its best.
This is not a beginner-level pistol class. Students should have a working knowledge of basic marksmanship and manipulation of their gun prior to showing up, and be safe and comfortable with one- and two-handed shooting.
