Randy Harris on Low Light Training, Tactics and Gear.  ALL THE LUMENS!

Firearms and tactics instructor Randy Harris rejoins us from Episode 1 and we talk about gun-fighting in low light conditions.  Randy walks us through some of what he trains his students in his classes, we discuss tactics and we talk about gearing up for gun fights in less than ideal lighting conditions.  Statistically more fights happen between 6:00PM and 6:00AM than the rest of the day!  Are you ready for it if the fight comes to you?


About Randy Harris:

Randy Harris is an instructor with Suarez International. He has 19 years experience working in the shooting industry, is an NRA certified instructor and has had articles published in several defense oriented internet newsletters and publications. He has been a practitioner at the National Tactical Invitational and has been a presenter at the Rangemaster Tactical Conference.

A recent student had this to say about Randy:

"Randy Harris is a subject matter expert that is teaching right in his wheel house. Randy is a nice guy who does not let his ego get involved in the class and what he is doing. He is probably the best firearms teacher that you have not heard of, and he is better than many you have heard of."
