Course Purpose and Objectives
Fighting with your handgun in total darkness or low light conditions is not an intuitive or instinctive skill. There are numerous important aspects to effectively using a light – whether it be a handheld torch or weapon-mounted light (WML) – whilst safely manipulating and using a firearm.
The objectives of this course is to expose the student to the effects darkness and various lighting conditions have on their ability to identify targets and engage them, and then equip them with the required knowledge and skills to effectively mitigate these difficulties. This includes the use of sights in low light and darkness.
Central to this focus is the understanding and use of the various torch techniques whilst manipulating and using a firearm. We also explore the effects strobing and flashing lights have on accuracy and target identification, and how to work around these and similar distractions.
