    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    Seems like it would be nice for hunting. Especially cleaning deer and climbing in and out of the stand.

    Actually, this may be somewhat practical in HD situation at night for those who don't want a light mounted on their handgun and use a free carry tac light. Assuming it is "aim-adjustable", it would free up the fingers on the weak hand to assist with normal holding of the weapon. Also, if mounted on the weak wrist, that arm can be held away from your body if searching your home in the dark for a possible intruder, making you less of an easy target. Just some thoughts, but I may want to check into this further.

    Not a bad idea, but I think I saw it first on "Star Trek: The Next Generation".

    I have little switches on the wall for that.

    I would rather have a light in my pocket for portable illumination.

    Might be a good alternative to a weapon mounted light while keeping a hand free.

    Id be concerned with activation and/or utilization in a SD situation.

    If it's on your support hand, how do you activate it when you're holding a gun with your shooting hand? If it's on your shooting hand, how do you use it without pointing the gun at anything you want to identify?
