    I would never even consider bolt ons hanging off my carry gun.

    Nightstand gun has a light as does one in the living room. One of the ARs has a green light that sometimes lives on a 10/22 (varmints). My carry gun does not have lights but has night sights.

    No....just no. NONE of my handguns have rails - and when I look at one to possibly buy, a rail DQ's it for me. To each their own, but if I put a gun in my hand, it's already hit the fan, and I'm a minimalist....I'm gonna double-tap my problem without being worried about being tacticool and lighting them. My nightstand gun is more likely to have a suppressor on it than a light.

    It's really dark in my house at night, where I live there are no streetlights or nightlights at all. I don't prefer to mess with a light but not inclined to shoot wildly into the dark either.

    Strategic placement of night lights will backlight your opponent without your eyes having to adjust to a sudden burst of light from you.

    It also helps knowing that anybody else in the house is an intruder, without having to actually identify them...

    Not on my carry gun.

    I do on my bedside guns.

    Have not red dot yet, due to none of my slides being milled. I like the red dot though.
