I like the surefire scout with a pressure pad for a light. On the laser, if you have to have one, green is easier to see. One thing about lasers is, if you train allot, you tend to get lazy and search for the light rather than your sights. This is not a good thing if it comes to head and the dam thing quits. Muscle memory is critical is tense situations. Put a low light front post on, a good light and go train. Oh yeah, keep it lightweight.

Very true, I have a EO tech but still train with the iron sights should the EO Tech fail.

So, if you need to use an AR-15 in the dark, why in the hell would you put a headlight on it to advertize your position?

it wouldnt be used as a "always on" light to give up position,it would be used as a "little blurp" just to light up a millisecond to see where ur goin or to blind ur target as u shoot.
