Some answers to the quote above from another thread started me thinking about this. If you cannot/should not draw your weapon without 1) an imminent deadly threat or 2) facing charges of "brandishing", what utility does a tactical light bring? Perhaps having one on your bedside HD weapon is a good idea but how does that apply for EDC?In a developing situation, where things seem to be getting more risky, how soon would you unholster your gun?
Or, should you? Wouldn't that desire be the signal that you should already be leaving?
Where are you in assessing circumstances and what decision to make? 16 million new gun owners aren't expert by any means and they need some carefully considered advice for civilian gun carriers.
