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

FYI: Seats are still available for this class. Please contact me if interested.

Question for HKPro: Why is this the only section that allows threads to die off after only day?
