In aprox. two weeks I will be buying a Sig 229 in 40 caliber for protecting my family! My question is whether to in stall just Sig nite sights or mount a light on the gun? The store where I am buying the gun advises me to just get Sig nite sights because if you mount a light on your gun you would give your postion away to a intruder that broke into your home because most likey they are carrying a light!
Then you have the other school of thought which believes that you should have a light on your gun because you want to be able to see your target and will not make the mistake of shooting someone in your own family!
Here is what I see as a possible option-
Mount a light--because at an unholy hour of say 2a.m. and you only have on little nite lights you want to see this intruder and possibility the intruder just seeing the light will leave your home!
Any intruder is much more awake then you are because they most likely have been planning this breakin to your home - if I can't see what Im shooting at and I am threated by lethal force then why have a gun?
Any shooters thoughts on what you like on your gun?
