Hello all, here is today's article posted on TheArmoryLife.com. It is titled When You Shouldn’t Use a Weaponlight and can be found at https://www.thearmorylife.com/when-you-shouldnt-use-a-weaponlight/.
You shouldn't use a weaponlight to advertise your presence.
Only time I could see having it always on is if the power is out or its pitch black in your home and you want to make sure you ID everything in front of you.
To me a WML is as much about blinding your possible intruder / attacker as it is ID'ing.
Same here on WMLs and the OSP. I like that you mentioned coffee as part of your EDC.I'm untactical, so I'm not going to wade into the argument for or against WMLs... but I will say I've had my eye on the XD M Elite Tactical OSP for a while... I'm pretty sure I sincerely need that pistol...
Yep, coffee is definitely on the EDC listSame here on WMLs and the OSP. I like that you mentioned coffee as part of your EDC.
That reminds me of the time when I was on duty in military dress uniform [unarmed] and was confronted by a car jacker who was drunk and looking for a fight. My first thought if attacked was to douse the individual with the contents of my piping-hot Duncan Donuts coffee before delivering a smackdown. I immediately got loud and he backed away. I really didn't want to get my uniform dirty anyway.

At night my home has a very faint blue light at one or more places in each room. I can see fine but others usually can't. I always carry a very small and fantastically bright light for blinding purposes to use if it makes sense. https://www.nebotools.com/p/MYCRO/595 I also own larger lights https://www.nebotools.com/p/REDLINE-6K/700 for use outdoors.
I do not attach lights to guns except for two lasers attached to two TAC 13s.
