A friend of mine is reading a collection stories where guns in the hands of non LEO's have saved the lives of countless people. They are true stories and one things has stood out, the vast majority of situations happen at night. he said the authour claimed 73% of SD sitautions he has recorded where lethal force was used to defend ones self happened at night. When he is finsihed with the book I am going to read it as well. This got me thinking, how often do I practice my night time drills and I must admit I have been very slack in this area. I am not out in the evening that often but still feel it is important to train for all possible scenarios, if possible. I am looking for a defensive handgun class in my area since it has been years since I had any formal training, and one of the requirements I have is they must offer a nightime shoot and teach night time SD skills. I have a informal range on my property and plan on doing some night time drills. I have also replaced my dim sights on my Glock with some TFO's. I can honestly tell you these are the brightest sights I have seen on any firearm. I also decided to order a set of CT grips for my G23. While a laser is no replacement for proper use of iron sights I can see many benefits to them. They allow quick shooting and target acquisition in low or no light conditions as well as allow shooting from different positions where using the gun's sight wouldn't be possible. I will give a report once they arrive. Shooter's Resource had them on sale for $170 with FREE shipping and lifetime battery replacement, so it's not a arm and a leg if I don't like them. Itried them on a customers G23 while at my local gun shop earlier this week and I really like how they provided a nice palm swell for my 2nd gen G23. Anyway just thought I would pass along those stats and curious as to how many of you actually practice nightime SD drills and it is a proven fact that is most likely when it will happen.
