    Part of the training I offer deals with shooting in low light and darkness.

    The solution is called point shooting. It works.

    In your eyes you have cones and rods. As you start to get used to the darkness the rods are coated with a chemical that allows you to see better. It takes approx. 45 minutes for this to occur. If you get hit with a light source you get to start over again. Red LEDs do not hamper night vision. Also night vision sees only in shades of black, white and gray. Another interesting fact, shine your light on a target and while still looking at the target turn the light off. The target disappears for a short while, use that to your advantage. If you carry a light on your gun be sure to carry one on your belt also. If you are going to spend much time in the dark use a red filtered light.
