Introduction to Low Light Tactics

There’s no such thing as ‘street crime’ for the armed citizen, rather, there’s ‘parking lot crime’.” – Tom Givens

Nighttime and other low light situations limit our ability to spot trouble before it becomes a problem for us. This is just one of the reasons why crooks use it to their advantage. Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths around how a low light environment works for and against those who would do us harm. This class gives the armed citizen the knowledge and skills they need to come out on top in an urban low light environment. 

Topics covered will include 

  • Different types of lighting environment and how they affect our vision
  • Low light vs no light: Which is more common for the armed citizen
  • Gear choices for when it gets dark 
  • Night sights, weapon lights, laser and red dots 
  • Defensive flashlight techniques 
  • Defensive pistol use in a low light environment 
  • Home defense in a low light environment

MANDATORY requirement for this class. 

  • Completion of at least six hours of post-concealed carry class pistol training
  • Ability to draw from a holster and safely re-holster with one hand
  • Constant and consistent application of the four rules of gun safety

  • A modern, semi-automatic pistol in 9mm or greater caliber, with or without a weapon-mounted light attached (preferably without)
  • At least three magazines for your pistol
  • A belt magazine pouch 
  • A secure and stable gun belt 
  • A safe and comfortable OWB holster (IWB and concealed carry with instructor permission)
  • A headlamp flashlight with a red lens or light
  • A bright (300 lumens or greater) tactical flashlight with a tail-mounted activation switch
  • 150 rounds of FMJ ammunition 
  • Water, snacks
  • Eye and ear protection
  • OPTIONAL: A defensive carbine or shotgun with a weapon mounted light, plus 25 rounds of birdshot if a shotgun, 50 rounds of FMJ ammo if a carbine

This is an advanced class, so prior training in the use of a holster is absolute must. Students must (I repeat, MUST) be able to safely draw and re-holster their pistol with one hand. Please contact me with any questions.

Class will be approximately 3-4 hours long and will be held at the Deep50 Gun Range. Cost is $250.
