Re: Tac-lights and house guns
Yeah there sure is two sides to a coin.
They will blind the crap outa someone, but only one at a time. Like if their are a pair or more, I guess blind the most dangerous one...lol. The flip side to that intense beam is loss of night vision, so all that about "head on a swivel" gets tricky when you're waving the gun everywhere you look.
Which brings me to the family member thing. I'm not fond of the idea of pointing a weapon at a family member in the middle of the night under stressful circumstances. Even if a person has hundreds of training hours with the weapon system, the thought makes me nervous, let alone if it involves a gun-store cowboy.
