NRA Women’s Tatiana Whitlock explains why having a weapon light attached to your home defense firearm is a good idea in “Using a Mounted Light for Home Defense.”
If something goes bump in the night and you have to investigate, you don’t want to be stumbling through the darkness. You can’t shoot what you can’t see, and Whitlock says having a weapon light will not only help you positively identify your target, but act as a force multiplier.
While few of us ever thought we’d have a blacked-out lever-action hunting rifle on our wish list, here we are with not one, but two. The Marlin Dark series was followed by the Henry X-Model, both American-made levers.
