LOW LIGHT FORCE ON FORCE GUNFIGHTING
Since most criminal assaults take place between 6pm and 6am it is likely that you may have to fight in low light or darkness. Most range time is generally devoted to shooting in daylight and most force on force classes take place during the day. In this class we will take it a step farther. We take the already proven Suarez International Force on Force class and apply it when things really happen . . . in low light conditions.
We will spend time on live fire in varying light conditions, both with and without flashlights. We then will deal with real life problems both outdoors in public and indoors in low and even no light against live adversaries. This is not just a burgler hunt involving cardboard targets, but managing realistic assaults sometimes including multiple assailants in reduced lighting. It will go a long way toward dispelling some of the myths surrounding flashlight usage and what shooting in low light is really like.
The training is open to ALL civilian students, and is the sort of class you can attend over and over again to maintain your edge!! Fight-focused NOT Gun-focused!
