Gamer flashlight technique

Speaking of IDPA flashlight techniques, here’s how I’ll be rolling at the upcoming Indoor Nationals. I use a Crimson Trace Railmaster light as a handheld light because it allows me to get a really positive master grip on the pistol.

Reloads with this grip are simple with a semi-auto pistol, just roll the light deeper into your hand. They’re a little more complicated with a speedloader, I need to shift the grip a little to make it work right.


  1. How about that new gadget – Surefire, was it? – that allows you to attach you light to your finger with a ring?

    1. Not legal for IDPA competition. This flashlight technique was conceived specifically for IDPA shooting to allow shooters to get the best grip possible on the pistol.
