A member of TTAG’s Armed Intelligentsia asked the Rabbi to recommend a light for his gun. The answer came with a stern warning. “The vast majority of lights have click-on switches and multi-functions which I prefer to call ‘multi-mistakes’.” The Rabbi reckons that’s a gurney full of not good; the chances of quickly, quietly and efficiently activating the “correct” light setting in a self-defense situation are low. “My preferred lights are by Surefire: 6P LED, LX2 Luminex, 6Px Pro. There are probably a few other models that qualify as well. There are a number of off-brand and lesser known names in the business that cost less, but I don’t know about their reliability. They may be just as good but I don’t know . . . When it comes to live saving equipment, I buy the best.” Is he wrong?
