Summary: 

Rifle5 is our most challenging course in our Rifle series, one must complete Rifle 3 and 4 or the equivalent and demonstrate effective proficiency to participate.  

This course is taught by our most advanced instructors. 

Fighting in a diminished light capacity is nothing short of difficult.  

In the modern world, there are low lite areas even in broad daylight. These shadows and dark spots are a prime location for an adversary to attack you.

Proper identification of an assailant is an integral part of any armed encounter. The use of a light will assist with that proper identification in periods of darkness. This course is designed to teach you the core skills of working with a pistol and multiple kinds of flashlights. .

This course is based on hundreds of hours in the field with just the use of illumination devices.

We will NOT be using night vision optics in this course.

In this class we will build on the prior class fundamentals and your instructor will provide observations and suggestions to you regarding your technique, stance, grip etc,

This class will set up scenarios to expose you to many of the prior techniques but put them in a new variant of little to no light along with blinding light. 

This class will cover the following new concepts: 

  • Shooting from concealment, cover and barricades
  • Using a light in combination with your gun
  • Moving and Shooting in the Dark 
  • Effective Decision Making with Shadows and Low Visibility 
  • Stress Testing your Capabilities with Timed Drills

Repetitive training of fundamentals will also be incorporated: 

  • Safety Handling.
  • Holding and Grip of your firearm.
  • Eye Alignment. 
  • Body Position / Stance.
  • Refining your Sights use.
  • Acquiring your Target more quickly and accurately. 
  • Aim Improvement Techniques.
