A powerful light carried on my belt is far more useful to me than a light mounted on a gun. I need a light MANY more times than I need a gun. I am unwilling to point a gun at anything I do not intend to shoot just so I can see something. Several times I have been in large buildings when the power went out and it got really dark instantly. A light mounted on a gun isn't going to be real useful in this situation and could even create panic in the world of sheep we live in today. In any case, carry a good light. Always. (or as my flight instructor used to say, "Carry at least three" And as always, he was right. Nothing like landing an aircraft at night while holding a flashlight with your teeth on the instrument panel because all the alternator belt let go)
