Pistol/Rifle Level III: Lowlight Comprehension and Movement
Day 1: Weapons Mounted Light and Handheld Techniques
Day 2: Weapons Mounted Light, Weapon's Transitions & Movement
According to the FBI statistics book, over 70% of all criminal encounters happen during lowlight/no light hours and environments. For those of us in the professional fields and for civilian concealed carry permit holders, you need to understand and be able to proficiently apply the techniques and tactics behind lowlight weapons mounted lights (WML) and handheld lights.
Pistol III will quickly refresh on the eight fundamentals of pistol marksmanship with the added stress of working under lowlight conditions. We'll be refining sight alignment and sight picture while learning how to properly manipulate your WML and handheld light during the execution of drills, designed to test your weapons manipulation and cognitive thought process. There WILL be movement involved in this course. The course is information & content heavy with a fast pace teaching environment. The drills are designed to build on each other with a culmination series of scored drills at the end for a chance at Top Shot.
Rifle III will quickly refresh on rifle fundamentals and lead directly to more advanced drills, introducing & applying dynamic movement while shooting under lowlight conditions. We will learn how to work both weapons platforms and transition from primary to secondary systems. We'll also learn how to move & shoot in all respective directions, shoot around obstacles and barricades as well as shooting next to others, around vehicles (if permitted), shooting on the move single hand, moving & shooting in pairs, and negotiating obstacles while shooting, all under lowlight. Most drills will involved your WML but some drills will also require movement and manipulation of handheld lights.
