This is a 16 hr low light shooting course designed for the student who carries a firearm and operates in and around vehicles. Since accuracy becomes extremely important in low light conditions this course will take the patrol officer through a series of nighttime drills which will give them a better understanding of how the darkness effects each shooter. The instructor will explain ocular anatomy and physiology effects on low light shooting and how to better train for nighttime tactics. The class will cover key features of utilizing different flashlights, holds, and weapon mounted systems. In addition to low light concepts, the Vehicle CQB portion will cover dynamic positional shooting as it relates to vehicles in the use of cover and concealment. Students will walk away with an understanding of ballistic principles as they apply to various mediums of cover such as glass, vehicle doors, engine blocks and wheels. Drills will incorporate adverse shooting platforms with dynamic weapons manipulations while engaging threats in, around, and under vehicles.The course is designed for 2 hour of classroom instruction followed by 14 hours of practical instruction on the range at night.
