Advantages or Disadvantages of Light or Laser ?
Just like the title says. I would like peoples opinions on the advantages and disadvantages of having a laser on their pistol/rifle or a light ? My opinion on this, the laser is a no no unless you have no choice but to use one because of your eye sight. To me it gives away your position especially in a home environment. I have heard and spoken to some law enforcement peeps and they use the laser to intimidate offenders. On the flip side of the laser deal, helps you get on target faster, could be used effectively in an area where you KNOW that the area is clear of friendlies. A light on your weapon or hand held light, I use a hand held surefire G2 on my night stand. If ever I needed to use it I know not to turn it on until the last second to blind a home invader and give me a chance to defend myself. I always teach myself to hold that light kinda away from my body, I don't want to be a target. If I hear a lot of noise than I know their are more than one of them, good idea not to use the light at all. And also if you have loved ones in seperate rooms you have to have make sure they were secure. I am debating whether to get a laser on my AR, my friend got one of those green lasers on his, it cost a lot .... is it worth it ? I have a SuperTac Streamlight on my AR, use mostly for varmit hunting, very nice light. But I have never been a big fan of lasers, opinions anyone ?
