• Vehicle Low Light and No Light

Vehicle Low Light and No Light Course Description

**This course does NOT require Night Vision (Optional).**

**This course can be completed in any combination of handgun & carbine; handgun & PCC Pistol Caliber Carbine. ** Recommended ammo counts for these configurations are listed in the equipment list below.

The Vehicle Low Light and No Light course is an advanced course focusing on the development of operational, technical and sustainment skills in high risk low light / no light environments. Throughout the class, shooters will be driven to utilize hand held and weapon mounted lights for both primary and secondary weapons. This will also be conducted in and around vehicles. For those students that possess NODs, after all the fundamental light work is complete we will give a NOD familiarization package including: NOD operations (controls, mounting, safety) and weapon configuration for low light / no light environments (flash hiders, IR lasers, VIS lasers), if students possess such equipment. This course is designed to push the threshold of low light work around vehicles during ambush situations.

Requirements: Carbine 1 and Handgun 1 or similar.

Cost: Price will be shown in cart.
