You should shut off your scanning light after you turn on your gun light for two reasons, one is it's easier to see through your scope with your scanning light off and two is you will light yourself up. The scanning light will be shining on your gunmcharlton said:I use my scanning light the whole time ... When I see eyes, I will turn my gun light on and identify what it is ... I never shut my scanning light off
Agree...... hunted for years before the GML was allowed. I think to much emphasis is placed on it. It is nice to have and to use but IMO it really is not necessary.mcharlton said:I've never had a problem seeing through my scope with my scanning light on ... And I haven't noticed lightin myself up that way ... When I bring my head down to my rifle my scanning light is always shining to the right of my rifle (just the way your head will naturally fall) ... I just don't see the need to cause extra movement in turning your scanning light off to shoot. I believe that extra movement will cause you to get busted more than anything
So you are holding your rifle in the shoring position with one hand as you are reaching up to your head to switch a light of? Just trying to understand.......If you have the gun mounted light shining in their eyes how will they see movement from turning off the scanning light?
