In this issue, we'll take a look at Weapon Mounted Lights.

What are they?
A weapon mounted light can be defined as any light that is specially designed to fit and work on a firearm.

Why do I need one?
Positive target identification is essential in every aspect. Weaponlights allow you to identify your target and what is around it in dark and no light situations.

Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.
— Jeff Cooper

Weaponlights play a key role in modern firearms. They give us the ability to confidently utilize firearms in dark or no light settings and they also provide us with the assurance of positively identifying targets. Another advantage of weaponlights is their ability to blind or disorient targets. Some weaponlights operate at up to 630 lumens and feature a strobe function that can disable your targets vision. Other weaponlights will also include a laser which can assist in target acquisition and also serve as a threat deterrent.  

The most common argument considering weaponlights is the use of night sights instead of a weaponlight. Although night sights give you the tactical advantage of being able to see your sights in dark or no light situations, they do little in terms of identifying a target in a low or no light situation. This is where weaponlights come into play and why you should consider adding them to your defense weapons.
Take a look at some of our most popular options in weaponlights. Keep in mind that while some of these options are mainly for pistols, most options can be utilized on multiple weapon systems.
