I saw that interview. I thought that way lame. A great way to get yourself shot at. Light up the target...oh my, its me!
Your in a theatre. The lights are out...its dark. Some idiot start shooting. You follow Webb's advice. Good luck. You don't exactly know where the shooter is...and there you are popping up trying to get a light in his eyes. Right.
There goes your "concealment" you light up the theatre with your flashlight...beaming shot me, shot at the light. A theatre of targets.
I think your survival is a little bit better in the dark.
Gosh what does he have to do, in that scenario, to avoid the light? Move his head...close his eyes briefly, step, move, duck? I think you better reconsider this tactic....just my opinion.
