Low Light Vehicle CQB is an accelerated shooting class focused on positional shooting and critical light manipulations in and around vehicles. Students will push the boundaries of “traditional” cover and concealment utilizing various cars and trucks in a true 3D environment. Drills will incorporate adverse shooting platforms with critical weapon employment while engaging threats in, around, from, over and under vehicles. Lighting principles and threat assessment all play a major factor in this course. Live ballistic demos with a variety of ammunition will be conducted as the class explores ballistic deflection, deformation, penetration and terminal effect in direct correlation to various vehicle mediums. This course will have long days and night shoots on Day 1 and Day 2. Please be prepared for it.

Note: Students are exptected to arrive with a rifle that has already been zeroed.

Due to the nature of the course this has (prerequisites of completion from a reputable trainer or program we can verify in carbine and or handgun training) this is not a shooting package you should have your self and kit squared away prior to class.
