Although criminals can attack at any time of day, they often commit robberies and home invasions under cover of darkness. However, many gun owners are unaccustomed to shooting in the dark, since ranges tend to be well lit and/or open during the daytime hours. Training in daylight, while helpful, does not fully prepare a person for the realities of shooting in self defense at night. The solution to this problem is to get firearms training that covers low light situations. Unfortunately, that training can be hard to come by in many areas. While a website is no substitute for in-person training, the Box-O-Truth has posted a great primer on the topic of low light shooting. I would encourage everyone to check out The Box O’ Truth – Low Light Essentials.
