    Ti,

    I understand your concern, but having a light on a handgun does not mandate that you have to point your weapon at someone to use the light. Even if we constrain the application to the use of a mounted WML only, i.e. no supplemental handheld and the WML is not removed from the gun and used as a handheld, which is an option, there is still a way that a WML can be used - indirect or bounce illumination. You can bounce the light off the ceiling or floor. Of course this assumes we are in a situation where our drawn gun would be justified.

    Removing constrains, a WML gives us additional options. We can carry a supplemental handheld as search/redundant light ("one is none, two is one" - don't know that I fully agree with that but it is a commonly taught axiom.). We can carry the WML off the gun as a first response handheld, then if we feel the situation justifies drawing our gun, then we can mount the light as we see the situation calls for.

    Just some thoughts.

    Wow!

    I'm not the only geek on the board. EM Rail Guns indeed.

    Oh well. RIS are cool too, I guess. Too each his own, I suppose.

    I changed title to read ''railed''

    My SIG 226 ST has the rail but thus far it has not been exploited - probably never will be. Its presence however is no problem to me at all.

    One of my 1911s has a rail and it is my HD pistol. I have a Camillus LEDWAVE Z5 mounted on it and it works like a charm. I also practice, practice, practice both with and without the light!!

    I have a 4" Kimber w/ a rail on it. Makes no difference when carrying it and at home I put my surefire on it. Only me and the girlfriend at home. If something goes bump in the night she grabs her XD9sc and I grab the Kimber.

    Very nice TA. We now have three definitions of rail gun.

    Love those old fashioned ones. Come to think of it, Atomic Annie was built on a rail frame (but was modified to be pulled by trucks). Now that's home defense.
