    I like the idea of a handheld flashlight better, as pointing a firearm at someone/something that I might not want to shoot doesn't sound like a good plan to me.

    This is true, I agree to an extent

    I use trigger discipline when aiming a firearm, if i had a light or a laser, and I thought there was a bad guy w/ possibilities of friendlies, nobody would could get shot until my finger was on the trigger, the gun can shoot by itself

    Even when there are friendlies in your area, doesn't stop the need to be cautious so I still see why someone would have a flashlight on their gun, I would rather have an extra hand as well for fighting, aiming, or opening doors, etc.

    I have Lasers on ALL of my small CCW guns...
    They help in the dark/low light conditions.

    Also, I feel that the laser beam will help make the BG think...Maybe???

    Lateck,
    Exactly! The psychological impact is definitely a factor. In my earlier post about my experience, I forgot to mention the funny part. The guy actually tried to wipe the red dot off of him with his hand!

    I have used Tasers with and without laser sights. When pointing the earlier model without the laser, the BG often said, "so what, shoot me". When we upgraded to laser sighted models, it absolutely made a huge difference. The rate of compliance to verbal commands went up by a staggering amount when that dot was on them. It was also apparent that people drunk or high on drugs got the point quicker with the laser dot on them.

    I can absolutely say without a doubt it makes a major difference. The experience with the Tasers is why I equipped my handguns with lasers.

    Well, I'd advise against "Mexican style" carry.

    My home defense gun is a Glock with night sights, and a laser light combo, the light will strobe which can and is very disorenting for whoever is on the other end of it, but it was not cheap, but price does not go into the equasion of home defense. the laser is simple, put the red dot on n shoot, more for my wife than me, but i seem to b liking it myself, especially if i have to reach over or around something to shoot, where aiming would not be an option, my cc gun has bullets, think it has sights, but if i have to use it, it will most likely be close quaarters, and at 10 feet or so, your in trouble ..... not that i am
    John Wayne shooting from the hip, i ppoint shoot and with practice have to say, am pretty darn good at it.

    This has made me think. With a laser light combo wouldn't you lose your night sight if you're using a light unless you close one eye? But wouldn't that reduce your perfierial (sp?) vision in a main area? Then theres the idea that there is only one target. This has made me rethink an idea i had of the laser light combo that has a strobe due to my night vision. May just get a laser with grip activation. Thoughts on my ideas?

    I do not care for rails .. but it may be just me.

    I think that they are ugly.

    I have laser grips on my night table gun.

    They work very well and have kept Point of aim = Point of impact for several years.

    I have been trained on the use of a flash light and my hand gun .

    That's the way I choose to use a flash light.

    I'm sure someone would gladly take your money for the setup and another expert would certainly train you for a few dollars more. Just learn to fight at night. We have a competition weekly and it starts out in the daylight and continues into the evening. There is little light and after you shoot a few times you have no night vision and it's dark enough that most of us cannot see our sights at all or the targets very well. I shot the course twice and ran some faster times when it was dark. Just learn to shoot. But remember if your opponent is well trained you're screwed, but then again highly trained people will rob you when you aren't home.

    I think the whole a flashlight will give you away is complete BS. A friend of mine who is a cop told me the same thing about a light. And also a laser. Maybe it is BS because my house is relatively small. 2 bedroom one bath sort of compact. I am running a streamlight tlr-3 on my m&p .40c, and nothing yet on my full sized m&p .40. With the TLR3 I can flip the switch on the light and it will light up the whole room/ Guess that is one positive to having a house laid out like ours. The only place you could stay out of sight is the laundry room behind the kitchen. Though it really wont do you much good as there is nothing to hide behind.

    My HD pistol has a laser. I would be laying in wait in our room, not searching the house. But i will keep the laser pointed somewhere in the room (probably at the wall next to the doorway) as to not give my position and the fact that im armed away. My reasoning is if im waking up at 3 am or something my aiming is gonna probably poor, tought to see the sigths, plus the adrenaline of the situation, I want ANY/EVERY advantage or shortcut i can get for putting hot lead in bg to protect my family. I just think it would be easiet to put red dot on bg and shoot. I don't have/need a light because we leave the kitchen light on every night, which puts us in the dark and anybody coming into the room in the light. I do have a flashlight on the nightstand but not for this scenario.

    My wife suffered an arm injury many years back so we have low light on in the house all and every night. The garage has a UV bug-zapper going all night. That means we have plenty of fall protection but no way of preserving any possibility of any night vision - inside the house. I rely on either the iron sights on my XD or the 1 x 28 red dot. Neither give away my position and I can use them day and night in practice conditions.

    A word of warning - constantly check the zeroing on your red dot. I had 2 "cheapies" before my Bushnell that needed constant attention. I still check my Bushnell often but have never had to re-adjust it yet.
