Having a light source, weapon mounted or handheld, is an essential accessory for your home defense or concealed carry pistol. You must have the ability to positively identify your threat and this may be more difficult in a low light situation. That being said, there are some caveats that come with using weapon lights.
Understanding light usage and limitations is just as important as having the light itself. Most people are not going to find themselves in a "tactical" situation where they are clearing rooms in a darkened building with little or no light. A weapon light allows you to have a light source to ID an immediate threat, but this doesn't mean you should completely discount the use of lamps or other household lights.
Lumens and output are another aspect of weapons lights that sometimes gets exaggerated. While more light is generally better than not enough light, there is such thing as too much. Splash back from wall colors or mirrors can be just as blinding as the light itself. Users should take caution with discharging their lights and get to know how the lights react in different areas of their homes.
Overall a light is an excellent addition to a defensive pistol setup and brings a lot of advantage to the table with the only real cost being a little extra weight. If you decide to go the handheld route be sure to practice some form of one handed shooting while deploying the light. The handheld light may be the most optimal option for someone who has children or family members around the home. #HomeDefense #PistolLight #StreamlightVsSureFire
