Tactical Light Input
But lots of people swear by them.
I was reading this article about 4 different ways to use a light with your gun. The "Harries Technique" is the one you always see on TV cop shows - with the light held in the support hand, with the wrists crossed like in the picture.
I know they can be used to blind a bad guy, but I just keep coming back to the thought that it's a big target for the bad guy to aim at.
I'm a big fan of laser grips, and I guess that could have the same drawbacks, but I see them more as assisting with hitting your target when you're unable to line up your sights.
Any input? I get questioned often in my gun classes, and I don't have any good answers. Are they a good idea? Have you used one? Which technique do you use?
