I'm posting this here (as opposed to gears & accessories or scopes & optics section) since this is a specific question pertaining to handguns only. I'm a believer in lights/lasers for my handguns that I carry. I'm not interested in debating whether one should use a light or laser on your handgun; I may ask that question another time. But to all those who use lasers and/or lights on your handgun, do you normally take it off when you practice at the range? I practice mainly using my sights (due to not over-relying on the laser) at the range and don't use the laser or light. The reason to take it off is that obviously I would think it may prolong the life of the laser/light to not subject it to thousands of rounds of recoil at the range. But the reasons to not take off are that they are a pain to remove and place back on every time I go to the range. And I would think the light/lasers are built to withstand such an impact anyways. Plus there's nothing in the instruction books of any of my lasers/lights that recommend taking them off when possible; and I like feeling the weight of the light/laser on the muzzle to simulate actual firing in a self-defense scenario. Does anyone have any experience with this? Have you left the light/laser on during all your range firings and found that they don't last as long? Thanks in advance for all your answers.
