Over 70% of the time you may need to use a weapon in self defense it is nighttime. Having a good weapon light is critical for most self defense and home defense firearms. The biggest concern is proper target identification. Sure, in the mostly dark of your home you might be able to see the outline of a human well enough, but without a good light source you won’t be able to identify them (is it your spouse or an intruder?) or get a clear picture of what’s going on (is it a confused/scared/injured person or a threat?).
SureFire makes reliable, powerful, and battle-proven weapon lights. The X400U combines a 1,000 lumen LED flashlight with a 5 milliwatt red laser. When you flick The X400 on, you can not only see your target clearly but you can also immediately see your weapon’s point of impact without needing to acquire your sights or optic. This combination is a game changer for home defense.
We run these on everything from handguns, AR-15 rifles, AR-10 rifles, and on semi-automatic 12 gauge shotguns. No issues with recoil shifting the laser’s point of aim or damaging the electronics in the light. These lights also stand up amazingly well to impacts, drops, cold, wet weather, and more. SureFire lights have been 100% reliable for all our team under all conditions.
