Do You Make This Critical Firearms Training Mistake?

This is a sponsored message from our friends at Tactical and Preparedness Solutions (David Morris)

According to the FBI, 60-80% of all Law Enforcement shootings happen in low-light environments and in at least 39% of those, lighting was cited as a critical factor.

It’s a safe bet that civilian numbers are similar.

So I’d hope this means you’re doing 80% of your firearms training in low light conditions. . .right?

Maybe 50%?


Even 1%?

If not, don’t worry; you’re not alone.

The unfortunate reality for people who train exclusively at a range using live-fire is this: it’s nearly impossible to get enough trigger time in to OWN the skills you can confidently depend on in the event of a low-light engagement.

That’s where dry fire comes in.

(For the fastest, least expensive, and most effective way to train for low-light shooting, click here right now.)

The straight line solution is dry fire training and that’s why I dedicated 25% of the drills included in Dry Fire Training Cards to low-light training.

I’m David Morris and you may have heard Glenn talk about my products on his radio show in the past or even seen him give out my Urban Survival books as presents on his Christmas Special.  I’ve recently released a firearms training aid called Dry Fire Training Cards.  In short, if you own a firearm, you NEED these cards.

Enough about me…let’s jump back to low-light training and why it’s crucial you address it.

The fact is that darkness adds a significant level of complexity to shooting. From sensory confusion to trying to remember firearms fundamentals when you’re in a distracted state of discomfort to adding a flashlight to the whole shooting process – shooting well in low-light conditions can be next to impossible without sufficient time training for it.

Dry Fire Training Cards are the perfect tool for quickly gaining comfort with shooting in low-light conditions.

Take away the stimulus of the “BANG” and add in increased training frequency that you get when training at home (for free) and your ability to shoot fast, tight, accurate groups in the dark improves dramatically in only a few days.

Here’s an example of one of the low-light drills taken right from Dry Fire Training Cards called, “Washout.”

(SAFE TRAINING NOTE: You MUST NOT have ANY ammunition present in the room where you’re doing this drill and you MUST follow the safety rules you’ll find listed at the end of this email. For maximum safety, use an inert training platform to do this drill.)

That said, here’s. . .

The ‘Washout’ training drill:

Look directly at a lamp or other non-painful light source for 5-10 seconds. Then turn out the lights and engage targets using only your flashlight.

Pay attention to how long it takes your eyes to adjust and whether a brighter flashlight gets you back on target faster.

In many cases, armed confrontations are won by the person who is able to adapt to adverse conditions the fastest. This
drill is designed to inoculate you to the panic that can happen when your vision is washed out and you can’t even see your firearm, let alone your sights or your attacker.

Pay particular attention to how long it takes you to be able to see straight ahead, as well as slightly off to the side when the lights go out after looking directly at a light.

Also pay attention to where you WANT to aim. You find your tendency will be to aim to where you remember the target being, even though you may not be able to see it for a few seconds. Your adversary will do the same, aiming or striking at where they remember you were before the lights went out. That’s why it’s so important to move (or “get off the ‘x’”) as soon as things go black.

If you’re able, practice this drill with different intensities of flashlights. As an example, when I do this drill with a 200 lumen flashlight, I’m able to get back in the fight MUCH faster than when I’m using an 80 lumen flashlight. By practicing with different lights, you learn the performance envelope of both your eyes and your equipment.

Remember, stats show if you must defend yourself, there’s an 80% chance it’ll be in low-light conditions. Which means if you only train in lighted conditions, you’ll likely end up flopping around like a fish out of water trying to defend yourself in the dark.

That’s why Dry Fire Training Cards include 13 drills specific to low-light conditions so you become comfortable with conditions you’ll most likely face in a self-defense situation.  Click >HERE< for special 2 for 1 pricing and to get yours now!

The best part about the low-light drills:  they add the variety that your brain requires to ramp your core firearms skills at an exponential rate.

And any improvements you make with low-light training will directly carry over and amplify your full-light shooting!

Now, this is just one of 54 drills that you’ll get with Dry Fire Training Cards.

They’re convenient (the entire deck fits into the smallest adult hand), cost-effective (compare these to the cost of ammunition right now) and the notes & drills will dramatically improve your firearm skillset (without you ever leaving your home).

To your continued personal safety,

David Morris

P.S.What are other shooters saying about their Dry Fire Training Cards?

I received my DryFireTrainingCards Today.  Thank You!  They are phenomenal!”  -Steve

I bought the cards on your recommendation and received them last evening.  On review, I am quite impressed and have already given the purchased sets to my sons, with the intention of purchasing yet another for myself.

These cards are a perfect adjunct to “hot” training, and I would argue that beginning shooters should run the deck before ever discharging a live round.  Thank you for the recommendation and the great deal!” -Roy

P.P.S.  Safety Rules (please read)

Safety is key anytime you handle a weapon.  Dry Fire Training Cards are designed to be used with an inert weapon or with a live weapon that has been physically AND visually verified cold (empty of ammunition), with any/all live ammunition locked up in a separate room.

By definition, dry fire is the manipulation of a firearm with NO AMMUNITION IN THE FIREARM, NO AMMUNITION IN THE MAGAZINES YOU’LL BE TRAINING WITH, AND NO AMMUNITION IN THE ROOM WHERE YOU’RE TRAINING.  When the hammer drops, there is no ammunition in the chamber.  When you insert a magazine and rack the slide, no round enters the chamber.  Therefore, by definition, if you have a negligent discharge while practicing, you were not doing dry fire because there is no way to have a negligent discharge without ammunition present.

If you have ammunition in your firearm, in your magazines, or in the room where you’re training, you’re not doing dry fire and should not do this drill.

Even with a weapon that’s been verified cold, please follow the safety rules found at

For those who order today, you’ll get instant access to the printable version of the cards, as well as a companion guide and a few other surprise bonuses that I’ll tell you about when you get there.
