In this post, you’ll learn a really cool little known gun training tip. (It’s about halfway down this page). Most people will find this statistic pretty shocking…The FBI Uniform Crime Report reveals that most shootings – about 80% – occur in low-light environments (such as a dark parking lot or in your home at night). I guess it makes sense, right?
I mean, yes – criminals ARE scumbags… but they’re at least smart enough to target you under the cover of darkness when it’s easier to ambush without the fear of being seen (or shot). So let me ask you – if you have an 80% chance of being forced to defend yourself and your family in the dark…… what percentage of YOUR firearms training time are you devoting to “low-light shooting”?
I’m guessing it’s probably NOT 80%, right? Well, you’re not alone. One of the obstacles most people face is that most live-fire gun ranges don’t want to turn down the lights because most shooters aren’t looking to practice low-light shooting.
Instead, most people who go to the range are doing “target practice”, under optimal conditions of high visibility… a non-moving target… not being shot at… and all the time in the world to get that 1″ shot group so they can brag to their buddies.
Frankly, no matter how many rounds you send down the shooting lane, these ranges are failing miserably at preparing you for a real life-or-death gunfight by not allowing shooters to be in a dimly lit environment.
Here’s a cool gun training tip you can use…
One way you can overcome your gun-ranges limitation is to bring a pair of really dark sunglasses with you. In fact, I bought a pair of “flip-up” attachable sunglasses lenses to put over another cheap pair of wrap-around sunglasses so I could easily flip them down for a really, really dark environment at the range.
With your sunglasses on (especially with my “double-lens trick”), you can create a simulated low-light tactical scenario for more realistic live-fire training at ANY range.
Now this will help a lot, but the bottom line truth is that the key to surviving a deadly gunfight is to train as close to “the real thing” as you possibly can, right? Unfortunately, even with sunglasses, you’re not going to get that kind of training down at your local gun range.
It’s not going to allow you to practice things like…
Moving around your home
Navigating obstacles (like furniture)
“Shoot-don’t shoot” decision-making
Low-light room clearing
Moving and shooting with a flashlight
So even live-fire ranges are going to limit you on how effectively you can prepare for a real attack, right? Well that’s exactly why my buddy Jeff created these 67 gun-training drills you can do at home…
These show you how to train real-life shooting scenarios IN YOUR HOME for the most realistic training possible. Most tactical courses can run you about $150 to $1,000 (or more), but the truth is, you don’t need to pay these kinds of prices to get a realistic training setup.
All you have to do is look at these 67 “budget-conscious” gun training tactics Click Here To See Them they compiled and you can get nearly as good training (in most cases even BETTER!) for a fraction of the cost. I promise it will transform your tactical firearms training forever!
