Low Light Fighting Course (Rifle / Carbine & Handgun)

Date(s) - 03/09/2018 - 03/11/2018

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.

“As a father, husband, and business owner, I cannot emphasize enough how important the training (Defenders USA) offers is to a the safety and security of families and ultimately free society.  Defenders USA has helped to sharpen my skills and awareness of potential threats to the safety of my family and those around me.  I have taken other defensive shooting courses and this is by far, the best training I have ever received.  Even having been around firearms my entire life, I was amazed at how many mistakes I was making, and how unprepared I was to stop an actual real threat.

The classroom work alone was amazing as (the D-USA instructor) has an in-depth knowledge on the legal, social, spiritual, and mental ramifications of using a firearm for the Defense of Life.  Then we went to the range and learned real world experience for defending our loved ones.  It was challenging, humbling, and fun.  My only regret is that I did not have more family and friends joining me for the training.  I hope to take the course again in the future and plan to bring people with me!

If every town in America send even a small percentages of their population to learn and apply this training – violent crime would be nearly non-existent in America today.”
