Carry for Life! © III:  Hit the Ground & Low Light


After Carry for Life! © II you can progress to this specialized level of instruction where you will review the tactics and techniques previously learned.  Standing tall may look great on the big screen, but in real life doing so can lead to undesired outcomes.  In this class, new firing positions such as kneeling, sitting and prone will be added as you learn how to shoot from the ground and other non-traditional firing positions.  


In addition you will learn how to think as you fire from cover, think as you fire while moving, shoot-move-shoot, fire at moving targets, and you will be challenged with problem solving situations, such as firing from left and right barricades.


Finally this course emphasizes state-of-the-art techniques in the deployment of your handgun in low-light situations, including shooting while holding a flashlight in one hand techniques.


You will practice ready positions, drawing your gun while holding a flashlight in one hand, coping with malfunctions, and reloading. Use of cover and concealment while using a flashlight and other light sources, including available light, will be taught.


Prerequisite:  Must have successfully completed Carry For Life I & II

Night Sights: 70% of shootings occur in low light situations.  Night sights can offer an edge for both point/intuitive shooting and sight shooting by providing glowing dots on your target’s center of mass.

Tactical Flashlight:  Much brighter than traditional flashlights, capable of momentarily blinding an attacker even during the middle of the day.  Find one that is at least 65 lumens, uses lithium batteries, and has a tail-cap on/off switch.
