"When working in low light environments your weapon lights are attempting to mimic the sun. If you don't have as many lumens as the sun, you don't have enough!!!" William Petty @temple_indexing_mofo _______________________________________________ I found this to be gospel when working in the dark during the @michigantrainer Home Defense class. The dark is not your friend, it makes a bad situation worse. 200 lumens was like a lighter in a white walled house with small rooms. Furniture and corners just ate the light, and momentary light was almost impossible. The shoot house gave the training a realism you just can't get on a flat range. Tomorrow night at 8pm central on @practicallytactical YouTube channel. Nick, myself, and Kasey (another MDFI alumni) will be doing a full AAR on our experience at The Site training facility.
