Ok, so you can point your weapon off to the side and you won't be pointing it directly at what you are looking at. I still don't think a weapon mounted light is a good idea, but I'm not going to knitpick this to death either.

Or down at the floor in front of you, or the ceiling. Not everyone likes them, no big deal, I was just pointing out that the reason mentioned wasn't valid.

Who's saying you cannot see tritium night sights in little to no light?

I think you might either be blind or just unknowledgeable...either that [Mod cut]

For having so many handguns wearing them and being the authority on the subject, I can't believe you never looked at them while walking up your driveway at night or took your weapon into the bathroom or some other room with no outside light sources.

This is in reference to night sights, lasers and weapon rail mounted flashlights.

You can get by without any of it if you know how to use your muzzle flash to see.

That's what "we" did before all of that.

You can see them, but my experience is they are pretty weak. Might be my eyes. I have trouble picking up tritium in less than very dark conditions. Moonless night in the country vs urban alley.

Before we had all the gizmos I shot like everyone else, I guessed. In the military we fired flares to light the battlefield, or used tracers.

As for weapon mounted lights. I have one on my tacticool AR. I'd like one on my home defense nightstand gun. But my training has been a handheld light. I can hold it away from the body, or make it almost gun mounted.

Options are good. A gun mount light is fine. If I could only have one, make it a regular flashlight.

Streamlight is the best option. I always prefer Streamlight 69120 TLR-2 C4 LED with Laser Sight, which provides long-range targeting and Up to 2.5 hr. runtime.
