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.
This course is only available to MDFI Alumni therefor you must be logged in to your Alumni account to register.

TAKE THIS COURSE. Sure you're proficient in the daylight, go to complete darkness and everything you've learned, trained and practiced goes out the window (or it did for me) Weapon manipulation, red dot acquisition, malfunctions and even simply reholestering in the pitch black darkness was very eye opening. More work to be done in this skill set for sure. The team was excellent as always! Very worthwhile course to take, you wont regret it!!
My total take of the class was eye opening on what is correct and what is not correct.
I learn a lot as to ID the bump in the night. Is it friend or foe. Style of light and how to use it for your benefit and not the bad guys. It was a great group of Alumni to work with. Thanks to Trek!
To start off, this review covers both times that I took the lower light handgun glass about 2 months apart. The first was outdoor in September and the next was indoor in November.
The first class I was very much unprepared with my inferior equipment (weapon mounted light and handheld one) but also my lack of mental prep. Engaging a firearm in very low light does interesting things to the mind. Confusing is an understatement. However, Trek and the crew did a great job of breaking down the fundamentals while encouraging us to keep our heads in the game and staying safe.
After coming down from my initial anxiousness a couple days later I started to upgrade my equipment quickly. Both the weapon mounted and handheld lights were upgraded. Then I started dryfiring in my basement with them. It felt much much better. However, I was determined to make a better go at it so I signed up for the next low light class on MDFI's schedule. I had also learned that about 80% or so of dangerous situations occur in low light conditions. Equipment upgrade was great but I needed to mentally improve on the first go around.
Now, I can't say that I was fantastic in all my results in the second class, however, the second time around didn't feel like I was playing from behind and/or drinking from a firehose. So glad I took the cues from the first class and quickly jumped back in. Thanks MDFI!
This is a must take class. You will learn a lot about using a light with a handgun both pistol mounted and handheld. If you carry a flashlight and pistol at all you will walk away from this class wanting more even though you have learned a lot. Great class and I cannot wait to take more.
4th class with MDFI this year and once again it proved to be money well invested. Unwavering stance on safety allows me to concentrate on the new skills being taught and the excitement the instructors have keeps me focused. Thanks MDFI and thank you Trek for what you give to us, my family thanks you!
