        Yes. It requires modifying most rifles to add attach points.

        They're literally designed to be attached to rifles. Do you expect it to hold the rifle by floating near it??

      Sling

      Light
      Suppressor

      In that order.

      How is a sling ever before a light? You can just carry the gun by hand like people did for centuries, a flashlight is comparatively novel technology and can't easily be replicated.

        The boring truth is that it all depends on circumstances and expected use. You don't need a sling on your rifle to defend against a home invasion as

        If it were necessary it wouldn’t be an attachment.Wmf just an aim assist to the enemy telling them where to aim. Like a permanent muzzle flash but brighter. Train your eyes how to see in low light like the vietcong, pansies

        correctly points out, but once you venture out of the confines of HD, you may find out that climbing a 10 ft chainlink fence or carrying a box of MREs gets really difficult without a sling.
        Also kinda funny to see people bash others for being totally detached from reality while being unable to imagine that someone might have to climb a ladder while carrying a rifle...

          in the HD part. My bad.

          Anyway, a usable sling or strap can be useful and should be a lot cheaper than a good weapon light, so I see no reason why not put one on my rifle before even looking for the right flashlight.

          No imbecile, we can definitely imagine that. But I would also like to ask you to point to all the civilian cases where someone needed to climb a ladder with a rifle, a situation that isn't hunting. I'm talking about realistic practical defensive tactical use.

            I would like you to point out where does OP state "civilian home defense use only".

            >a situation that isn't hunting
            Congratulations, you've just excluded an extremely common use case for a gun. One where sling might be pretty useful.

            If you stopped sniffing your own farts for a while you would have realised I don't claim everybody must have a sling, all I wanted to point out is that people buy guns for many more purposes than just home defense. The fact these purposes don't apply to you doesn't mean they don't exist.

            Also picrel.

              I would like to point out, unless you're hunting hogs or some other invasive species, hunting with a light is straight up illegal so we can deduce OP isn't talking about hunting if you have an IQ above room temperature. Additionally I don't think anyone would argue against an optic being the first thing you put on a hunting rifle.

    You can aim the gun without a dot, you can carry it without a sling, but it's very hard to see what you're aiming at in the dark without a weapon-mounted light (or a bunch of night vision crap)

    Technically, no attachment is necessary. Did soldiers in Vietnam use lights? Or in WW1 or 2? That being said a light is a great attachment to have. And yes, probably the closest one we can come to saying is "necessary". But even then, I'm going to say no. However in a world of vidyeah COD tacticool attachments where turning a 6lb gun into a 12lb gun is the norm... Necessity means different things to different people.

      Yeah, they did, they just had to awkwardly clip them onto their webbing because the only way to attach it to a gun would have been duct tape.
      Believe it or not, night time wasn't invented only in the past 20 years.

        When I was in the Muhreenes in 2011 we still had those believe it or not. We were issued those for boot camp and Infantry Training Battalion. Those things can BARELY light up something 5 feet in front you. They were only so you don't trip on a rock or so that you can read a map. Did everyone also have a lamp issued in WW1 and WW2? Did no night raids or night combat ever happen? Like I said, even though it's not ideal, people have been killing each other at night time with guns even before flashlights were widely accessible.

        Do they still make whatever you call that style of light for military use? Presumably with an LED light that is a lot more powerful? When I was a kid my dad had a spare one and it was cool to mess with but pretty damn weak.

      No, but they all used slings. Slings are a necessity for anybody who actually takes their rifle somewhere other than the gunsafe and the pay-range. A sling is as necessary for a rifle as a holster is for a handgun

    Pick any 2 and you're alright, get all 3 and you're doing fine, add a suppressor and you're king of big dick mountain. Pick a different job for the firearm and the rules change.

    The gun light is driven by modern self defense laws. Some states dont like if you mag dump on an intruder especially if its dark…if you cant see clearly you cant properly asses your threat level therefore your use of force cant be justified.

    So now everyone mounts a light to every gun they have so if they ever mag dump they can say they clearly saw and assessed their threat.

    Outside of this a flashlight is stupid. As others have said its just a way to alert your enemy.
