Low Light Defensive Pistol Tactics

Low Light Defensive Pistol Tactics

When an attempted robbery or home invasion occurs in the late-night hours, a flashlight is an excellent tool to help the user find, identify and, if necessary, take down a threat in a low-light scenario.

However, the benefits of using a flashlight don't end there. What many sometimes fail to consider is that the flashlight can also be used to disorient a potential attacker, giving the user the critical seconds needed to gain the tactical advantage.

Find out how to use light as a weapon in this segment of Handguns & Defensive Weapons TV on the Sportsman Channel.

KelTec P17 22LR Pistol – Feature Packed, Accurate & Fun to Shoot

If you're in the market for a 17-round, compact .22LR pistol that's feature packed, then the P17 is definitely an option for you. At less than 14 ounces fully loaded, and barely longer than a dollar bill, the P17 is concealable for pretty much anyone. The threaded barrel, Picatinny-style accessory rail, ambidextrous safety, ambidextrous magazine release and three (3) 16rd magazines come standard. That's a lot of value added in such a small package.
