I think not having a light on a personal defense firearm is not very responsible.

But but but I know my house w/ my eyes closed. That's a BS excuse.

Yep, because knowing the layout of your house with your eyes closed is different then seeing something/someone that shouldnt be there in total darkness. Especially when you have a firearm and are trying to aim it "accurately"

I don't have lights on any of my weapons. I was taught to use the light with my left hand, and it has worked quite well for me.

The 80s called, it wants its low light room clearing techniques back .

All joking aside having that extra hand can invaluable and less cumbersome.

The first thing that comes to mind is the tech where you rest your shooting hand on your support which is holding a flashlight backwards. Not a whole lot of support.

They also make a "Tactical" Over & Under. These type of weapons didn't exist 20 years ago because no one would have wanted them. They are made today because Mossberg can sell them. That says a lot about the gun buying public today. These types of weapons, along with their sales figures, represent the reason why the terms "Tacticool" and "Mall Ninja" are alive and well most everywhere. If someone will buy it, someone will make it. Make it flat black and plastic, and slap a rail on it, and there will be a market for it.

Why would you want a "tacticool" o/u? Someone a few fries short of a happy meal!

I was trained in the use of a proper flashlight as an impact weapon as well as a light. With an itty-bitty teeny weeny flashlight mounted on your weapon, that option is unavailable.

I definetly want the Stoeger Double Defense in the O/U configuration or maybe the Mossberg Maverick HS 12. http://www.slickguns.com/product/maverick-hs12-12185-ou-bl-syn-cyk-40899-free-shipping Because they're "tactical" got those rails, right. And they would be legal in the UK... I want a shotgun liscence. All I can say, judging from the reception it got from you guys, I am a few fries short of a happy meal... But personally I think it looks good, yes. I'll probably be a luaghing stock, but hey, haters gonna hate, alligators gonna alligate.

The tacticool sometimes appeals to me... sometimes not... that lever gun is a bit unusual and alien looking but it also feels like the rebirth of the wild west... certainly provides a variety of optic options and accessory space... can't imagine John Wayne slinging with it but if he could mount a grenade launcher to his faithful lead launcher it may have put a smile on his face...
