Class Flow: MODERATE (students can expect a full evening of shooting and light/weapon manipulation from a static line)

There is a good reason the saying isn’t, ‘When things go ‘bump’ in the daylight.’ Bad things happen all the time, and that includes hours of darkness or in dark places. Low Light Handgun is designed to explore, test and evaluate the various methods of using a handgun for defensive purposes in low or no-light situations. This course will introduce the student to a variety of low/no-light techniques for use in the real world.

This class is for the student who is very proficient with their handgun fundamentals and manipulation during the day and are looking to build on those skills in the hours of darkness. This class is for the intermediate to experienced shooter who understands and applies the four rules of responsible firearms handling as a way of life. Students should be absolutely competent manipulating a handgun with both hands available and have the ability to shoot with practiced marksmanship.

My first MDFi class, and it was an excellent class. It's an amazing introduction to low-light shooting and skill building for doing so.

The class is very well organized starting with a detailed safety brief and introduction to the objectives of the class.

Excellent instructors and very well run and highly illuminating in terms of low and no-light handgun use. The proper use of flashlights to properly identify things that go bump in the night is taught, as well as malfunction clearance in the dark and proper decision making. Excellent curriculum and attention to detail, quality instruction, and an emphasis on learning and safety at all times. It's also a very fun class.

Since bad things often happen in the dark, getting this training is both eye-opening and truly essential for a handgun owner.

What an eye-opener it is to experience shooting in the dark!
I can see why some of the MDFI cadre says this is their favorite class - you get to experience the whole spectrum of daylight, dusk/transition, and then complete darkness (class goes from 5:00PM through 2:00AM).
For anyone concerned about shooting under low-light, many of the students shared this sentiment at the beginning of the class. What I can assure you is that like any MDFI class, the cadre takes an uncompromising approach to safety and establishing control - this is as safe an environment as you can find to train in low-light.
And not to forget, damn this class is fun!!!!
