    Default LAPD Ambush Video Happy Ending

    Got shot at and took the fight to the BG, second team probably wishes they had a shotgun given the second volley (ofc 3-4 in vid) were in a great position for one. Still took care of business

    I noticed that light on one the officer's pistol was on. I wonder if it would attract gunfire. I doubt that it helped at all with aiming and the area did appear to have ambient lighting sufficient to see.
    The officers were unhurt more to that fact that the goblin could not shoot very well than from any tactics that they employed.

    I can go either way on this. My personal preference is to use a pressure switch or a switched tail cap so that I only trigger the light when actually presented for shooting. In this instance, as you say, there is enough light to see, so turning the light off when you're already under fire doesn't help much. As to the aiming it will help you get in the vicinity, allows you to acquire the sights easier due to contrast, and it has the added benefit of being a target indicator as to the location of the shooter for other officers and/or the airship (think an IR laser and NVGs, the other team members can see the laser as well and direct fire or maneuver on someone they can't directly see).
