I'v ebeen thinking about this since seeing it the other day. Interesting and worth doing, but I would imagine safety to be a nightmare for the RO. (finger out of trigger guard, sweeping, 180 violations)

How is that accomplished?

Or is there more light there than the way it appears in the video?

There is some bounce back from your flashlight for the RO to see what you are doing. For our indoor range, we keep the other side further back - just in case, but generally people use good safety and slow down enough not to be a danger.

It definitely puts things in a world different than normal day shoots. Your spacial awareness gets thrown off, reloading with a light in your hand is troublesome, and even simply moving between positions takes extra brainpower. Pushing the limits of what is COMFY is how we prepare, not only for competitions, but real life too isn't it?

I highly suggest giving it a go if you haven't ever tried it. We had a 1st timer at IDPA come that night. He did just fine.
