Here's an idea...

Like lots of other people, I have a "lighting the cheap seats" white light setup on an AR carbine. The whole schmear (rail, vertical foregrip, Viking Tactical mount, and Surefire G2) on my 9mm AR cost less than the PentagonLight MS2 on Project Housegun, and that's not counting the Surefire rail forearm and GG&G foregrip on the latter weapon.

I know lots and lots of users with this setup, either because they're short on funds, don't want to sink a mint into a .gov-issued weapon, or just want a cheap light on a trainer or backup rifle. The first company to make a remote tape pressure switch that'll replace the tailcap on the cheapie G2 Nitrolon will make a mint. I'm waiting...

Here's a neat write-up that google turned up:

Sweet mother of crap, that's a good idea!

I'd do a setup like that for the bedside shotty...

Yes, yes, yes!

Tam, I :wubz: ya. I'll have to remember this when I get a Mossberg (still plan on getting my first centerfire rifle though, in the form of a Marlin 336). :P

I'd also like to find a clicky tailcap for my G2 that doesn't cost as much as the #$*(ing flashlight.
