Tactical Illuminator Training  

Over the last 10 years of sharing what I have learned about weapon-mounted lights, I have heard the same questions, concerns, and training issues from departments around the country. I have found that discussing Jeff Cooper's Rules of Firearms Safety in reverse is an easy way to hit all of the bases for a solid tactical illuminator training program.

<p><strong><span>Neck Index</span></strong><span>&mdash;Draw your handgun and hold it in a one-handed grip, then draw your flashlight, grip it in your non-shooting fist, and position the light against your neck on your non-shooting side. Now as you sweep with your body and your gun hand, your head and neck will naturally follow and so will the beam of your light. <strong><span>Pros</span></strong>: Works with small or large lights. Works well with tail cap-activated lights. Allows simultaneous illumination of both your sights and the target. Easy to search without muzzle sweep. Easy to transition into flashlight strike. Cons: Limits user to one-handed gun grip. Can draw fire to head. Can create excess flash on sights.</span></p>

Action Target&#39;s Track Runner heavy-duty track-mounted moving target system is designed for more permanent range installations. Unlike portable systems where the target is suspended from a steel cable, targets used with the Track Runner are mounted to a trolley that runs on a special track mounted close to the ground. This approach is ideal for realistic tactical applications because the target can move to different locations, change speed and direction, and dart in and out of cover. Action Target is now officially ISO 9001:2008 certified.</p>
