Engineered to fit any firearm with a Picatinny rail, the Rail Master offers a 2 hour run time on one CR2 lithium battery and instant, ambidextrous activation in a compact, snag-free package. The Rail Master light will be available through the regular dealer network or direct from the Crimson Trace website at an MSRP of $139.

Each Rail Master light is equipped with 4 interchangeable inserts to allow the user to custom fit it to their gun. "The idea was to allow this multi-platform illumination tool to fit as many firearms as possible," said Kent Thomas, Director of Marketing for Crimson Trace. "The Rail Master's inserts and Secure-Lock Technology™ allow it to fit both rifles and shotguns, while on handguns, the user can fine tune the position of the light on the gun to optimize activation with either hand. We believe it's the most flexible and user friendly tactical light available."

Due to its adaptability and rugged nature, the Rail Master light is expected to be the dominant weapon light at the Crimson Trace Midnight 3 Gun Match in July – the World's first and only night time 3 gun match. Some of the nation's top 3 gunners will be equipping their pistols, rifles and shotguns with the Rail Master as they blast a wide array of targets in the pitch black high desert night. Expect to see extensive coverage of the match and the Rail Master product line and Midnight 3Gun Invitational on NBC Sports, Versus and the Outdoor Channel this Fall.

Skills Check: Present Arms

We refer to the draw stroke as the presentation at Gunsite. It’s a better explanation than simply “drawing” the pistol, because it describes the act of presenting the pistol from the holster to the target or threat. In our “basic,” five-day pistol class we expect students to present the pistol and make hits on targets from 3 to 7 yards away in 1.5 seconds. Most students can do this in two or three days of training.

Mental Focus vs. Mental Awareness

Shooting at the very edge of your skills envelope requires tremendous mental focus and well-developed shooting awareness. However, some shooters believe that shooting awareness and mental focus are one in the same. They are not. Using pistol shooting (combat or competition) as an example, what is the difference between the two and how can it help you hone your shooting skills to a razor’s edge?
