OK I need your help deciding something. I am currently building a Rem 870 based Home defense shotgun. It will have day glo type fiber optic open sights. I want to add either a laser or a flashlight to it. I would add both but I don't want the end of the barrel all bulked up. So what ever I add will be either mounted in the extended mag or directly in front of it. SO what I need help with is: If you were in someones house to do evil in the middle of the night and you saw a Red Laser or a Flashlight coming down the stair well towards you which would be more likely to get you to run screaming like a little girl into the night from which you came? My house is lit at night (7watt CF in the Living room, downstairs bath) so unless the bad guy went around and turned off the lights I have no problem seeing in my house at night. (nor would I if the lights were off due to window placement and street lights).
