Do you practice, really practice with a flashlight or weapons mounted light?
Next time you're at the range practice your usual drills with a flashlight in your hand, the one you carry when you're walking the dog at night or the one kept near your gun as you sleep.
Try searching your home at night with all the lights off. Make your gun completely safe. Ammo in a secure location and handguns roped. Can you flash and move? Can you turn the light in and off instantaneously? Can you do it with the weapons mounted light on your long gun.
Lots of people practice what they are already good at. It's easy, fun and makes us feel good about our abilities. Practice the hard stuff.
At TDI our Handgun 4, 5 and 6 classes are devoted to flashlight usage on the range and in the live fire and force in force houses. Our long gun classes have you run the gun with lights as well.
Be safe. Practice the hard stuff now and then. ...
