Weapon Mounted Lights

This week, Ernest Langdon, from Langdon Tactical, talks about having a secondary light source if you carry a firearm with a mounted light.  A mounted light without a doubt allows you to shoot better in low light environments, but it also requires you to point your weapon at everything you are illuminating.  Having a secondary light will allow you to use the light without ever drawing your weapon, or without pointing your weapon at unintended targets.
