    Adding a tac light to a Mosberg 590

    I have a Streamlight TL-3 and a remote tape switch with coiled cord for my Mossberg 590.
    I have the flashlight mounted with a figure 8 clamp on the magazine.
    My question is:
    Should I use my thumb (mount on left) or fingers (mount on right) to operate the remote tape switch? Both feel pretty natural but I wanted to know if there was a preferred way or recommended method.

    either way. I like to use the switch where I can easily on/off the switch and still have a comfortable grip.

    In addition to Rocky's post, I prefer to use my right thumb for light switches on a long gun. Why? I use my left to do tac reloads, my right hand stays on the grip at all times. That way my light is available for use even if I am in the middle of a reload.

    On a 590, I like to mount the pressure switch just below the saftey, within easy reach of my thumb.
