    I'm not a big revolver fan but if you are I see no reason not to have a light on it in the house.

  4. Something to consider if you use it for home defense: a light mounted to a gun means that to see anything you have to point the gun at it. Say it's your kid coming home late one night, you're having to point your gun at them just to see them. Not that you'd be inclined to accidentally shoot them, it's just something to think about when putting a light on a gun for home defense. Lights on guns are best suited to hostile situations with low risk for innocent casualties.

    Of course this all assumes you're considering it for home defense...

    You know people say this all the time but I think its alot of worrying about something that isn't a problem. I doubt most of us here have kids, let alone kids old enough to be coming home from somewhere, and even then I imagine its a routine happening that doesn't make you twitchy. More importantly though you don't have to shine a light at someone to see who it is. If you're worried about something like that these lights put out plenty of light to illuminate the room when aimed at low ready or the floor.

    :werd: Mine you can shine at the ground and it'll light up whatever room you're in with no problem.
