Class description:

Larry Vickers;

“This class is in response to the low-light/white light/laser training that

Ken and I do in our normal classes. This training, which normally consists

of about 2 hours of low-light work, has been met with overwhelming positive

comments from students. Many leave the class saying that was the single

best part of the training. Ken and I have a unique approach in our

Low light training so the idea was born to do a special class. The ranges

that will be used will be in the area of Marietta, Ohio near Ken's stomping
