It's ok. I'd rather be able to shoot 3 rounds per second with rails, than 1 round per second w/o. JMB will just have to deal with one of my future 1911's having rails

I'm interested in the physics of rail presents increasing cycle times?

What am I missing?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Oh, I mean that I can't fire quickly holding my gun in one hand, and my flashlight in the other. Sorry for the confusion.

I wonder if the Glock ninja gun has better cycle times...

You always shoot at night?

And what do rail mounted flashlight guys do when there's two tangos in a dark room?

And doesn't a rail mounted light give the BG a great center mass bulls eye?

I'm just askin'.

And yet you are all against night sights.

I have actually been faced with two tangos in the same room, with a principle to protect, in a controlled environment.

Valhalla's Training, under Rob Picnus ( a member here ) taught me a TON about what was fantasy and what was realistic, in the real world.

There are always options. And I agree with Cane, there is no reason for a rail mounted light.

You can always flip on a light switch, in your own home, when it's advantageous to YOU.

Triple tap, quadruple tap, and then a tactical reload as you make your way to another field of fire.

Doesn't the glare from a high-lumens rail light kinda blind the bad guy? And by the time he adjusts to it, he's down.
