    I believe they usually come with switches. I don’t know; maybe mine is a special model but it has a switch so you can use it, or not use it, at your discretion.

    If they donít know your position, your life is not in danger and you have no reason to shoot.

    Donít be a ninja. That way lies becoming joe rogan.

    Like many other things related to concealed carry, if you train properly with them they’re good, and if you don’t they’re not so good.

    If you shoot something or someone you couldn’t see you might not like the results.

    This issue is something I’ve always struggled with, because when I make decisions about carry or home-defense system options, the biggest thing I have to factor in is my own stupidity, carelessness, lack of training, and failure to practice.

    So, for example, I prefer pistols with an external safety, because I know that in a high-stress situation, I’m not going to have good trigger finger discipline, and I’ll end up shooting my dick off. It might cost me a half-second of time if I ever had to defend myself, but for me, given my limitations, that seems a good trade-off, based on the relative probabilities of the two events (negligent discharge vs gun fight.)

    And with gun-mounted lights, my biggest fear here is that I’d end up using my weapon as a flashlight and point it at someone to see who they are. I have a flashlight next to my home defense weapon, so I could only shoot it one-handed, but again, for me, that seems like the safer option. I make it to the range maybe twice a year. If I were Tamara Keel, who must shoot tens of thousands of rounds a year, takes training frequently, knows how to bounce the light off of floors and walls, and would remember to do that in a pressure situation, then yeah, weapons mounted lights are a great idea, particularly these days, with super-bright compact long-battery-life LED lights all over the place.
