Ft. Worth, TX -(Ammoland.com)- The Lights, Sights, Lasers 2014 U.S. Tour has drawn to a close having completed its visits to San Antonio, Texas and to the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona.

Police Officers, Sheriff’s Deputies, Federal Agents and Military Personnel registered to attend the no-cost, accredited training workshop this year, which provided students with professional instruction from Wes Doss of Khyber Training. In its second year, the LSL Tour visited ten hosted locations throughout 2014 and incorporated hand-held lights, gun sights and weapon-mounted lasers throughout the curriculum.

Supporting sponsors of the LSL Tour partnered to bring accredited training through Wes Doss of Khyber Interactive Associates. These training workshops are intended for firearms instructors and tactical officers along with Law Enforcement and Military professionals assigned to specialty details/assignments. The one-day (8 hour) accredited workshop was hosted by ten departments from Florida to Washington State and was free to the attending student.

The Lights, Sights, Lasers 2014 US Tour program was made possible by the official tour sponsors: XS Sight Systems, Steyr Arms, Blade-Tech Industries, Crimson Trace, Rainier Arms, DRD Tactical, The Sharps Rifle Company, Gargoyles Performance Eyewear and TerraLUX, Inc.

LSL attendees participated in classroom exercises that focused on a Train to Win survival mindset supported by blue guns that had been upgraded with XS Sights’ defensive sighting systems and Crimson Trace lasers. Students also benefitted from hands-on demonstrations of XS’s Glass Assault Tool (GAT) designed to easily breach vehicle glass. Intensive firearms instruction and live-fire shooting drills dealing with unconventional shooting positions and low-light visibility were the focus of the second half of the training day.

Feedback surveys rarely receive much attention, however, Steve Ponce, Jr., CBPO at the San Luis, Arizona, Port of Entry, went over and above.

According to his feedback on what he enjoyed most about the training in Yuma, he responded, “I’ve been in Law Enforcement since 1981. I’ve been to several high-speed training events but not one that involved the proper use of a flashlight. Keep it going!” When XS requested permission to publish his quote, Officer Ponce went further. “Our tactical team was on the range yesterday, and we incorporated your pistol drills into our training for those that missed the LSL seminar. EVERYONE scored in the 140’s (without sights) using the techniques we learned. It doesn’t get any better than that.”

Also from Yuma, USMC Sergeant Nelson Alvarez commented about his experience, “The unique training not often provided to military personnel. Most of the time it is just qualifying training with little follow on training. Keep doing what you guys do, it’s awesome.”

When asked his thoughts on the LSL training, one San Antonio student and DA Investigator, replied, “Excellent, no-nonsense instruction designed for real-world application. Keep up the great work!”

Just as participants came to expect, every LSL class concluded with a competitive “shoot-off” wherein students challenged the shot-clock by performing high-speed shooting drills and competing to achieve the best time and score with the most points for accuracy. Each “Top Shot” winner received a very generous prize package containing sponsor-donated products.

“I am absolutely proud of what we’ve accomplished over the last two years with the Lights, Sights, Lasers US Tour and the lives we have had an opportunity to impact with this training,” said Doss. “It’s rare when an organization gets this kind of opportunity, and I intend to grow the Tour every year, based on what we’ve learned from the students across the country. I’m honored to have the opportunity to stand before so many law enforcement, military and training professionals and work with each of them.” Doss further stated, “The LSL Tour wouldn’t be possible without the unwavering support of all our gracious sponsors.”

While the Lights, Sights, Lasers 2014 US Tour may have concluded, the 2015 Lights, Sights, Lasers Tour is ramping up quickly. For more information about sponsorship and schedule, visit http://LSLUSTour.com.
