As for handheld... You don't need to spend $100's of dollars on a surefire flashlight (if you're willing and have the money more power to you, they are great lights). However, you can get a solid light such as a Streamlight ProTac 2 for around $40 or so.

It puts out 180 lumen, and it can be operated one handed. In addition, it is large enough to use as an impact weapon.
I agree I was thinking that the weapon mounted light would be good for a home defense option though i have plenty of light s at home one on the gun especially with a strobe feature might be nice to have.

I do have a light mounted on my shotgun. But unless I was trying to kill a varmint. I would not turn it on until I was ready to fire. The light will come on with a touch of my thumb and at that point the bad guy had better be wyatt earp.

I have one of these on my 10/22. I used to have it on my shotgun. The first thing I do with a new light is put it on my shotgun and shoot skeet. The warranty only lasts so long. When I am betting my life on a light I prefer to test it.
