It is extremely important to have flashlight on your shotgun. You can’t shoot if you can’s see a target. I have tested many flashlights and decided to make a new post. This post has information about old flashlights and new ones.

I was surprised that some of the inexpensive flashlights are really good, reliable and bright. I still prefer Fad Defense Speedlight because of its compact size and brightness but you may choose one of the other flashlights.

One of the most common upgrades you can make to your Remington 870 shotgun is adding a flashlight to it. Light is an essential resource to have when you are trying to shoot in areas where you cannot see very well. Perhaps you are outside hunting at dusk or at nighttime and you want to be able to see in front of you better. A flashlight mounted onto your Remington 870 will give you the necessary light source you need to see what’s nearby. If you use your Remington 870 for home defense then the flashlight mount will come in handy during day or night. Even if there’s daylight outside, there could be a target that comes indoors or in an area where it is shaded from the sun. It is better to be safe than sorry so it is always a good idea to equip your shotgun with a flashlight mount. It is lightweight and doesn’t take up much space on your weapon.

First rule of home defense: “If you can’t identify a target you can’t shoot it”.

That is extremely important because you must not shoot a target that you can’t see and identify. If you hear something downstairs during the night you need to check what it is (of course, calling Police first is a wise idea).

Chief Brody posted test of his Remington 870 with Streamlight TLR-1 on Remington 870 Forum:

Meant to do this a long time ago, and wish I could do a better job – but anyway this’ll give you a good idea of how this particular light works. My camera wasn’t really getting the job done with the apartment any darker than it is, but you can see – the Streamlight is plenty bright with the lights ON. I’m a righty, and I have the TLR-1 mounted on the right side of gun, with Streamlight’s magazine tube mount. I can easily manipulate the switch using my left index finger, without shifting the rest of my hand on the forend. I took these holding the shotgun with my right hand and the camera with my left – that’s a workout!
