Students may be exposed to strobe lights from flashlights. Some people may have extreme reactions to strobing light which may cause severe disorientation and even seizures in some individuals. Contrary to popular belief, only a small percentage of people with epilepsy are especially sensitive to flickering light patterns, such as sunlight, strobe lights or computer screen flicker. This condition is known as photosensitive epilepsy.

Question: Who makes AWESOME holsters?
Answer: Lytton Custom Holsters
Please bring a good quality handheld flashlight to this course. It should be about 300 Lumens and have an end cap push button.
Weapon mounted flashlights are optional but require a holster that fits firearm with the light attached.
If using a weapon mounted light, you must also bring a handheld flashlight with extra batteries.
For safety reasons, students must use a Strong Side Or Appendix Carry Holster only!
Security officers who attend this course may wear their duty gear.
Students wishing to use a weapon-mounted light MUST bring a holster that accommodates their weapon with the light attached. Students must also bring a hand-held flashlight for use in practicing flashlight techniques.
The following holsters and carry styles are NOT permitted:
• Fabric holsters that can collapse when the firearm has been drawn
• Cross draw holster
• Shoulder holster
• Pocket holster
• Ankle holster
• Blackhawk Serpa and similar holsters which require the use of the index finger to deactivate a retention device (see more about this type of holster under "What is a SERPA Holster?"
A SERPA holster has a retention device that locks the handgun's trigger guard into the holster. The handgun is drawn by pressing a button with the index or "trigger" finger. Putting pressure on the button and then quickly drawing the handgun meant there was a possibility that your finger could slip into the trigger guard, negligently press the trigger and there have been incidents where an individual has shot themselves in the leg while drawing.
The Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) conducted a study and has banned SERPA holsters on all their ranges stating, "Holsters that possess a single tension release mechanism that is located proximal the trigger guard area of the firearm are problematic and pose a safety hazard." see study here.
Safety is our number one concern. For this reason, we do not allow these holsters in our training courses.
