Over the past couple of years it's been nice having the light on my Glock. When doing a building search, walking up to a vehicle where there are no street lights, needing to get a glimpse of what or who might be hiding in a defile where there is no light illuminating it. Then with the light being on my pistol I have a free hand if necessary. I still carry a light on my belt for when it isn't appropriate to draw my pistol and what not,but I have found that light very useful. Like all tools one just needs to understand that it isn't a Magic Bullet. Something we tend to fall prey to in law enfocement.

Having a light on my M-4A1 was super nice in Iraq. Lots of building searches. Lots.

Afghanistan we had better NODs and a lot less structures to clear. So no light.

I talked to an older Marine who back in the late 90s knew guys who taped 3 D cell Maglites on their rifles

Pop used hose clamps to put a Mini-Mag on his GAU-5 in Grenada and Panama.

This is a good read on what some of the old school Delta guys used once upon a time ago http://soldiersystems.net/2013/11/19...unter-carbine/

The Delta guys, whom Pop always refers to either as passengers or customers, is where Pop and the guys in what was then 1st SOW got the hose clamp idea.

See Chuck Heston with his S&W Model 76 and the flashlight clipped onto the barrel in "The Omega Man". That was in 1971.

Early 70s/80 attempts to put flashlights and/or lasers on guns tend to be hilarious with just how big and bulky they were.

Even older precursor rifle of spec ops is this

If they made this rifle for the COD Black Ops game, it would have been more authentic
