May be changing soon. Just bought a S&W Governor today. 410 to the face followed by a 45 colt would do a very good job of stopping the problem. Never thought about one till my youngest daughter got fascinated about one. So I bought one on sale at a LGS for her to try out.2-1/2" S&W 66 357 for at least the past 20 years.
If you’re old enough to remember there we’re several competing methods for handgun / flashlight use before gun mounted lights became available. Depending on your chosen method one idea was to hold your light away from your body or to hold it along side your handgun.I've been toasted on another forum for saying I don't think a light should ever be put on a firearm..... I guess I have to back up and say that I think most people, gun owners, should not have one on their weapon... simple reason is it just seems to me that it is too easy to use the light on the gun as a flashlight when your hear that bump in the night. Using the light on a gun to 'look' around is violating one of the cardinal rules of safe gun handling... then all it takes is violating another rule... "keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire" and with just getting startled and a bad thing can happen.
