Low Light Fighting Course (Rifle / Carbine & Handgun)

Date(s) - 04/13/2018 - 04/15/2018

Rocky Mountain Gun Club

This 2 1/2 day course is focused on introduction to and building realistic skill in effective fighting with both a fighting rifle / carbine  and handgun in a low-light or no light environment. This is not a beginner course, with perquisites required of having attended our Defenders Series, or the Defensive Handgun II & II, or our Advanced Handgun Course,  along with our Combat Rifle / Carbine Applications, and/ or the Fighting Rifle & Handgun Course.
Basically, realistic and high proficiency in handling and use of both weapons platforms must be either known by us or demonstrable.

Other considerations for attending this course if not a student of previous Defenders USA courses is a prerequisite of provable, extensive, professional, and realistic firearms training with both handgun and fighting rifle platforms, or as a full-time firearms carrier, such as sworn LE or solid MIL training (unfortunately, most standard MIL firearms training is not very good).
Unfortunately, we’ve had folks who believe they are weapons proficient, with even several being “firearms instructors”, who were not prepared for this course by showing up without realistic training with their long guns and / or handguns.
To attend, you need to be proficient. And we can help you get there….see our other courses available.

This is an extensive, packed course, almost completely in an low light environment in an indoor range, and also using a low-light shoot house once solid handing, shooting, movement, barricade use, tactics, use in and around vehicles, transitions, malfunction clearance, team skills, etc. are built.

The students will by pushed hard by experts with many years of training and experience in low-light fighting environments. Come expecting to work hard, sweat a lot, shoot even more and be open to learning.

Items needed:
– Rifle / Carbine with weapon light and a good sling, 3 magazines, 1,000 or rounds of ammo
– Handgun with weapon light, reliable holster, 3 magazines, 650 – 1,000 rounds of ammo
– Spare flashlight(s) of good quality with multiple spare batteries
– Any kit, gear, and accessories you want to use
– Eye & ear protection

This course will start for a short bit in a classroom on Friday evening, talking through low light and other considerations, then moving onto the range to begin working in a low light environment. All day Saturday and Sunday will be on the range in low-light or in the shoot house.

“I am sorry it has taken me a week to sit down and write but I wanted to thank you for the excellent training you gave me when I went to your Defenders handgun safety course and the CCW class the night before. I cannot tell you enough how much I learned from the classes.  There is SO MUCH more to using a gun properly and what comes afterward than I thought when I signed up for the class. And I appreciate the fun way you teach, it makes the  huge amount of information you gave us understandable and interesting.
   Having a gun is an awesome responsibility and hearing the legal aspects of it made it even more clear to me what a huge responsibility it is. I had no idea how much there is to it, not what I have seen on TV for sure! I was a little scared of it all but after actually shooting the way you taught us, I wasn’t so scared anymore. I know If I line up the way you taught us, with the grip you taught us, it isn’t hard to hit what you mean to hit. I have a lot more confidence now, I hope I never need it but you never know, and I thank you for it.
  Something else I did not expect-I had the longest conversation with my Dad than I have had in years! He is the reason I even took your class and he wanted to hear all about it and is excited for me to come visit so I can show him what I learned. And now my husband and I have something else we can do together. Robin says he may get one of those Rugers, he liked the one of yours he used so much, and that is the gun my Dad says he prefers also (when he uses a .22). So, family bonding! a benefit I did not expect.
  Again, Thank You! You are an excellent teacher and made a very serious subject come alive and made it easy to remember by making it FUN!  I have told all my friends about your class, they could see how excited I was about it.  All my best to you and Scott, thank you from Robin and me.”
