Why light on right, with pad on left? I’m assuming you’re right handed 

Because I prefer to activate with my thumb.. I normally run my thumb high on the forend so it’s very natural to slide down to engage the switch..

As far as the light on the right.. I am right handed which means the bulk of my body is to the left of the gun.. so if I am shooting from behind a barrier I want the barrier to block my body but not the light.. running it on the right accomplishes that..

Interesting. Thank you

Also it keeps my sling and light away from one another which is an added bonus 

I’m right as well but light left. For the button. I can see the benefits ofswitching if I had the pad. 

Not arguing!!! Does 1” of light make a big difference left or right?

Not if it’s right near the muzzle..

yes if it’s further back like on an oldd school carbine.. on on old carbine where muzzle is at 16in and light may only be at 7in due to a shorter handguard.. it’s easier for the light to end up behind a barrier when mounted on your weak side.. this is the same problem with 6 o’clock mount.. coming over the top of a barrier the light could easily end up behind the barrier.. 

if light is right near the muzzle then no it doesn’t really matter.. 

I prefer to not use a remote switch.. but with this gun.. due to the layout there was no better option.. 

Most of my carbines are light far forward no remote mounted weak side..

Switchology matters.

If you can’t operate your light intuitively, it’s in the wrong spot. 

If I have a tape switch, I prefer light on the right side - think 1 o’clock if the front sight is noon. I then like to mount the tape switch (preferably a switch with both constant and momentary on abilities) where my support thumb (I’m a righty) can easily reach it and my right thumb can also reach it if necessary. 

If I don’t have a tape switch and am using a clock tailcap, then the light goes at 11 o’clock so my support had thumb can activate the light using the switch on the ass end of the light body. My right thumb can still come over the top and activate the light of necessary (if I switch shoulders).

You need a longer tube and a match saver. 

You have to be able to hold 12 in the tube and you need to practice using the match saver (with a dummy shell).

You will lose count a lot your first season, the match saver helps, (A LOT).

The light will probably break off the first time you go to dump it. Check your slug zero, almost all clamps like that will change your slug zero every time you take it off and put it back on for cleaning. Shooters source has a front qd that replaces one of the rings behind the nut so no clamp needed.

I have a match saver.. if the light breaks I’ll be shocked LOL 

the shell carrier is on its way out.. I just didn’t get rid of it yet.. I had it off but put it back in when I went to the range the other day..

It still not usable for any kind of 3 gun shooting.. I need to solve the sight issue it’s still too slow.. it’s VERY accurate.. but slow.. I think I’ll have it solved in about a week..

Hold 12 in the tube?? That’s crazy.. LOL

I am working on a similar solution.. I am going to cut the top ring off the ghost ring so its just a U and then instal a fiber rod in the factory front sight.. I already built the front sight just waiting for the rod.. 

then I will sight it in like adjustable pistol sights.. it will be marginally less accurate I think.. but it should be faster..

This is the sight that pretty much everyone uses, comes with a lot of different sizes and colors to find what fits you. It's about 50/50 of the field running a rear sight, I never saw the need for it. I might be a hair slower on slugs but my shot shots are really fast and I rarely miss flying birds. Rear sights are not good for flying birds. If you run a red dot on your gun you will be in open division and at a serious disadvantage without either a mag fed gun, a speed loader system or an x rail (witch rarely run)

You need to be able to shoot the sg really fast, just sweep through the targets because loading the sg is slow and kills your time.

The side saddle thing isn't really an issue, it's not useful but it won't hurt to have. Meaning if you load from that on the clock your wasting time BUT, in the very likely case when you forget to put shells on your belt witch everyone has done at least once, you will have a few shells on the gun to load so you will get less failure to engage penalties. 

12 round tube is pretty much standard for non open divisions. Almost every match starts with 9 in the gun so depending on the stage you can throw a quad in at the buzzer. Jersey start's with 5 in the gun and most matches don't care what you do after the buzzer but quinton we have some rule nazis (not me) so you have to shoot the gun before you can load it and there is plenty of movement between array's so there is no advantage to holding more that 6 in the tube.

That style front sight is what I am after but the gun currently has a front tower so I have to work around that.. my presence would be a single fiber front sight but I can’t go back in time and fix.. so I have to modify.. LOL
