Default Flashlight mount & pressure switch

So anyways, I got me a flashlight mount & pressure switch for my 870 Tactical. I was wondering if someone could tell me the best way to secure the switch to the forestock. Thanks for you help.

I'm not to fond of pressure switches, if you have to use that hand to call the police you loose the light, and I'm sure not taking my hand off the trigger. Just my two cents.

I use Velcro. Wipe the back of the switch and fore end with some rubbing alcohol so it adheres good. Just make sure you have the switch where you want it before you stick it. I've had to change a few after I found out I was not happy with the placement.

I mounted my pressure switch for my surefire with 3M hook and loop super strong Velcro type stuff so I can remove it whenever I want to. Be sure to clean the mounting surfaces REALLY good with alcohol or solvent and use adhesive promoter for best results.
