Since you couldn't start the stage with the light on, it went like this:
"Shooter ready?"That extra couple seconds of fumbling around will affect your score...
-reach up with off hand and turn on headlamp, then shoulder shotgun-
-reach up with off hand and adjust headlamp so it's not pointing over berm, re-shoulder shotgun-
So when I put the Magpul forend on the new gauge, one of the things I also did was attach a little nubbin of rail to the forend so I could fit a pistol light or something.
Scrounging around the house, the only light I could find was a Crimson Trace Rail Master which, while a fine little light for a compact CCW pistol, just did not fill me with confidence the way it was dangling off that shotgun forend...
|I'm not sure I'm entirely comfortable with that...|
So I contacted the fine folks at Brownells and they sent a couple alternatives, a closer look at which will follow later this week.
