A little training/practice for getting a consistent check weld, like just going from low ready to ready, should alleviate any issues you have in finding the dot. This drill can be done in the comfort of you home, just don't freak out the wife and kids. Also remember when training to practice with both eyes open, focusing on the target. A lot of shooters have a hard time getting use to that, even some newer shooters. With a little practice you can find the dot in your peripheral vision and complete your sight picture in split seconds.
Thanks for the headsup on the insight, 200 lumens is just right imo. Where did you get it? I'm gonna have to pick one up for myself!!!!
egads, momentary only on the light....doesn't that kind of bother you?
Does it get really hot? I'm wondering why they chose to make it momentary only......
Thanks for the info! I will keep practicing for a consistent cheek weld. Lots of room for improvement!
I purchased it from here I believe
No the momentary only hasn't bothered me at all. That's what I was concerned about before I bought it along with the output of the light but I was pleasantly surprised by both! I think the most amazing thing is how much light you get from something so small and light weight. You can buy the non-HSP version from Inforce which has multifunction of momentary, constant on, and m/c strobe. They currently only make the multifunction one with 125 lumens though so be aware of that. There is also a lockout bar that can be quickly flipped over the switch or you can black out the light completely with a 1/4 turn of the bezel if you are worried about ADC. The ergonomics are so natural and the way I have it mounted I don't even have to move anything about my grip but my thumb.
Travis Haley redesigned the inforce light with the intended use being mostly for indoor use for things like clearing rooms or home defense and wanted a simplistic control interface so there would be no confusion with the controls when under stress. So that's why he chose to make it momentary only. The inforce light originally came out in multifunction. They sell a momentary version too but theirs is 125 lumens. Only the HSP version is 200.
