Simply put, bad things happen at night. Counter Active Shooter (Pistol-Night) will teach you how to be as effective and confident in shooting at night as in daylight. Our Cadre will instruct you on the tactics and techniques of night shooting in order to bring you to a level of shooting where you are more comfortable and confident with your firearm in a low-light or no-light situation. You will learn low-light/no-light strategies that will better equip you to react to an overt act of violence, along with basic movement and search techniques at night. All firing drills are based on real world scenarios and designed to fire at various distances, various positions, and single-shot or rapid-fire engagement.

Pike may appear to be old and slow, but don't get confused: he's venerable and methodical. He matriculated from the old school and is completely unimpressed with your craft beer, hybrid vehicle and non .45 caliber pistol. Other than that he's completely easy to get along with.
