WML BEN­E­FITS

Concealed Carry Hand Guns - - EXPERT’S CORNER -

Aside from be­ing able to con­trol your hand­gun with a nor­mal grip, the ob­vi­ous ben­e­fit of a weapon-mounted light is that it takes no more co­or­di­nated ef­fort or skill to use it with a firearm. Where you point your gun is where your light shines. You can as­sess any threat with­out the con­stant need to work at keep­ing the gun and light fo­cused on the same point.

They are small enough now that many peo­ple keep a light mounted to the gun all the time, so it’s there when you need it. Hol­ster mak­ers are re­spond­ing by of­fer­ing new rigs de­signed to fit hand­guns with lights and lasers at­tached. DeSan­tis Gun­hide, for in­stance, has its leather Tac-Lite (with thumb break) and Speed-Lite (with­out thumb break) holsters for use with TLR-8equipped guns.

If you don’t want the light at­tached full time, they’re easy to re­move. You can carry the gun all day, then add the light when you reach your des­ti­na­tion, whether that’s a re­mote wooded area, a ho­tel in a strange town or home sweet home. They make great hand­held lights off of the gun too. That’s a good idea be­cause of­ten you don’t want to be point­ing a gun where you need to di­rect your light.
