Seems like an obvious idea: mount a torch to your boomstick so you see what you shoot. If you don't get it, let us explain.

In some countries or jurisdictions, the use of artificial light sources and/or night-vision equipment is forbidden for hunting. So educate yourself about your local laws before taking action: these are not necessarily for you.

For LE/MIL use and practical shooting sports

The case for weapon-mounted lights in military and law-enforcement use is a strong one. It's an important tool to allow better assessment of the situation and identifying possible threats. Don't make decisions in the dark!

In practical shooting sports such as the Finnish Brutality annual 2-gun match, targets may sometimes be placed in low light to demonstrate and practice the use of weapon lights. While these are not the most common types of stages (no need to buy a weapon light when you're a beginner), these are always well received and fun things to do.

Mount the weapon light right

Try to position the light on your firearm to allow using it without changing your grip and to shoot from the other shoulder. (Remember, moving the stock from one shoulder to the other doesn't necessarily require switching your firing and support hands!) Mind blocking the beam for shooting over or around an obstacle. For example, 11 o’clock and 1 o’clock are good options.

Always carry a flashlight as well

Remember that when your gun points at anything and everything your weapon light points at. Be responsible and always carry a flashlight or headlamp as well.
