It is important to have good light when needed. Although a good light may not be useful for an individual in battle, it may be important for an armed citizen protecting their home. Top 10 Tactical Flashlight Tips is a list of tips to consider when using tactical flashlights.
Be Judicious. Use burst of light rather than leaving the switch on.
Moving. Move between burst.
Careful. Don’t back light family or friends.
Ceiling light. A burst of light at a white ceiling will light the room enough to distinguish threats
Ask Yourself. Do you really need light? You know your homes layout better than threats.
Other Hand. Manipulate the light’s switch with your non-shooting thumb.
Practice. Practice shooting with the light mounted on the gun.
Prepare. Check batteries weekly and have plenty of spares.
Settings. If you have a laser/light combo, practice and know the settings.
Cleanliness. Keep your lens clean. Shooting with a weapon-mounted light will leave deposit on the lens and decrease the output.
