Without a doubt our 1of100 Concealed Carry Standards are the most challenging in the industry! We are also confident that while the 100% mark is tough to achieve, nothing else in the training industry compares, we firmly believe we should set the standard high, but obtainable and then work to increase our skill. Nothing is more important than protecting ourselves and the lives of those important to us.
Course Title: 1of100 Into the Darkness
It is very likely that if we are ever a victim of a violent crime that crime occurs during hours of limited visibility. You must be able to see in order to determine if a threat actually exists, and if it does you have to be able to see in order to effectively engage that threat. Weapon mounted lights are fine, but they aren’t the end all when it comes to protecting ourselves and family in the dark so this course will focus on the use of hand help lights and the techniques that make their use viable.
Terminal Learning Objective:
“Into the Darkness” will make use of our 1of100 Concealed Carry Standards as a baseline to test our skill. The bulk of the learning experience will focus on handheld flashlight/weapon technique.

When the sun goes down, we will test ourselves against the 1of100 Standard.
