Health Ranger warns: Don’t make this colossal “prepper” mistake

If you’re one of the millions of vigilant patriots trying to get prepared for a worst-case scenario, listen up: Just because you own firearms and ammunition doesn’t mean you’re well-equipped to effectively use them – especially in low light conditions.

In a recent episode of the Health Ranger Report, available for viewing at, Mike Adams reveals one of the biggest “prepper” mistakes that people make: failing to outfit your firearms with the proper low light shooting equipment.

Most civilians who own firearms are used to training in conditions with lots of light, either at outdoor gun ranges during the day or at indoor ranges with consistent high light conditions. In other words, most civilians have no experience whatsoever in shooting their guns at night.

The problem with this is that during a crisis in which firearm use is required, chances are your enemy will be approaching under the cover of darkness – making him much harder to spot.

“Low light shooting is something that nearly everyone is missing,” Adams warns.

“Low light shooting is actually the most likely scenario that you will encounter in times of chaos because bad guys will attack you, or your neighborhood or your community, at night because they’re harder to spot.”

Most standard pistol sights don’t work in low light conditions

As he’s been learning himself as he endeavors to get prepared, Adams says that most standard pistol sights are completely ineffective in low light conditions.

“Most people have sights on their pistols that simply do not function in low light because they don’t have tritium, and when you’re shooting into dark areas and you have a pair of these Trijicon HD sights on your Glock, let’s say, you don’t have vertical sight capability,” Adams says.

“But if you’re going to defend yourself at night, you need a gun with sights that work at night, and so the TruGlo TFX Pro sights are the way to go for that. It really matters,” he adds.

A standard Glock or Sig firearm, he says, contains sights that are really just “placeholders” – meaning they should be replaced with something else to properly equip them for nighttime shooting conditions.

“They’re not bad for daylight shooting, but if you want to actually deal with nighttime scenarios, you’re going to need to swap those sights out, and so you’re going to need a sight-pusher, which is a sight changeout tool, so once you change out your sights you need to go shoot that gun, and especially pay attention to the horizontal spread, or horizontal accuracy – does it shoot to the left, or does it shoot to the right?” he reveals.
