Tenebris (Dark) WITH jbs tRAINING gROUP - $450


On demand performance in any environment is tough. However, the environment that presents the widest range of challenges to overcome is in the total absence of light. Shooting while utilizing night vision technology is by far the most efficient way to overcome the obstacles a shooter faces in an extremely low light or no light environment. Nightvision allows the shooter to gain visual input in a place where vision is otherwise extremely limited or simply not available at all. Utilizing Nightvision is only beneficial however, if the shooter knows and understands the most efficient ways to use it. Performance Tenebris is a course designed strictly around performance principles as they apply to the use of Nightvision devices.

Students that attend this course can expect to learn best practices and proper techniques as they apply to the use of Nightvision in a performance based environment.

*Safety is paramount. This course is NOT for beginners. You should have attended at minimum a basic carbine AND basic pistol course taught by a reputable training company in order to attend.
