This course is an introductory course for rifle and pistol handling skills, safety and marksmanship in a no light environment, using night vision and infrared laser systems. The goal is to get familiarized with how this technical advantage can be used in conjunction with correct fundamentals.
This is not a course for beginners or those not already confident in marksmanship and handling with a pistol.
Upon demonstrating proper safe handling of the weapon, students will learn marksmanship techniques and principles specific to shooting in a no light environment with weapon mounted lasers and Night Vision Goggles (NVG). Students can expect to fire more than 500 rounds live (rifle and pistol).
Our team of veteran instructors includes operational experience from military and law enforcement backgrounds. We’re confident you’ll learn something new from our instructors and your skill will improve as a result.
Main Teaching Points
Mindset, characteristics, description of NV and IR lasers, equipment choices and Safety Principles;
Fundamentals – grip, stance, sight picture, trigger manipulation, malfunctions (review then under no light);
Safe Handling Skills – safety precautions, firearms handling skills under no light conditions;
Using your environment, white light drills, when and how to use NV and IR equipment;
Skills practice and drills;
Summary – review and qualification shoot.
Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate and be eligible to attend Advanced courses and Defensive Pistol 4 classes.

-Prohibited equipment (as per Sage Dynamics):
War Sport LVOA-C, LVOA-S and LVOA-SP models are not allowed due to excessive muzzle flash that can damage night vision equipment.
Lantac Dragon muzzle devices are not allowed due to excessive muzzle flash that can damage night vision equipment.
Smooth rail/handguard rifles-due to the need to attach accessories, traditional handguards will not function in this course.
Reloaded Ammunition is not allowed for use due to increased difficulty in diagnosing atypical malfunctions under night vision use.
In general, Compensator and Brake style muzzle devices are designed to maximize reduction in felt recoil, allowing a flatter shooting rifle, however these devices in general produce more visible muzzle flash and more felt concussive force near the shooter. Because of these factors, students are strongly encouraged to use flash hiders and/or suppressors to minimize muzzle signature and prevent partner/team disruption in close proximity
Hunting in Canada and in particular Ontario has made a huge resurgence, we have opportunities in Ontario that most of the world can only dream of. Ontario has been a leader in the area of hunter training for many decades, and this has led to a huge reduction in the number of hunting safety incidents annually. Whether you want to hunt with rifles or with bows you must successfully complete the Ontario Hunter Education Program. The OHEP course is offered in two manners, either as a standalone course or as part of a "onestop" program where the student is attending both the Hunter Education course and the Non Restricted Firearms course. When taken as part of a onestop class it is a 10 hour course plus testing time, when taken as a standalone class the same 10 hours of instruction is required but we must also complete the firearms handling portion of the course.
