This may sound like a dumb question but I'd like to know how many different ways you guys like to hold your lights. I only know of 5 different ways I use but not having a digital camera with me, I will just have to best discribe my methods.
The top of the flashlight is where the switch is (unless the switch is on the tail end of the flashlight)
Regular: Fingers around the bottom of the light; thumb on the swich. Most regular flashlights are like this (hence the name)
Over: Fingers around the top of the flashlight; thumb and arm on the bottom (You're gripping the light)
Over the Shoulder: Similar to "over" but you rest the back end of the light on your shoulder (This is how I hold a 4 D or bigger Mag Lite, Streamlight*, or any other long flashlight)
*A former neighbor of mine worked for the LAPD and had a Streamlight Flashlight that was about the size of a 3 or 4D Mag but was rechargeable (He let me play with it a few times and I shined it across the valley at some unsuspecting people). Is this the Ultrastinger?
Penlite: Hold the head of the light like a pencil (Best when done with a Mini Mag or a Solitaire)
Tactical (SureFire): Fingers gripping the light like in "Over" but thumb on the tailcap. (I use this for all flashlights that have the switch on the back which also includes Sure Fires and other Tactical lights)
How do you hold your lights? Also, does anyone have a method I haven't listed?
