The Alternative to Weaponlights
It’s a comment we hear all the time – “Why not just use a weapon-mounted light?” Weaponlights definitely have their place in extreme tactical situations, such as SWAT, where the potential for engagement at gunpoint and live fire is high. But most professionals are held to a higher standard of discretion and most uses for a flashlight, even by law enforcement, do not include pointing your gun along with your flashlight. “Using your weapon as a handle for your flashlight” can often lead to citizen complaints, lawsuits, injury (or worse), from unintentional discharges while your muzzle is pointed in unsafe directions.
First-Light USA offers the best of both worlds. Our Safe-Search method allows you to safely keep your light forward and your muzzle down while you search. But should the need arise, Safe-Search allows you to instantly align light and weapon into a two-handed shooting grip.
And, once the need for a weapon has passed, First-Light USA tactical lights allow you to holster your weapon without having to go to your belt for another light.
Light forward, muzzle down, until you need it. Handgun or long gun. Weapon-mounted lights turn your firearm into a “loaded flashlight” – you have to point your weapon to use your light. But the First-Light Safe-Search method allows you to keep your muzzle disciplined and pointed in a safe direction, without sacrificing the use of your light.
