If you had to pick one of the two to put on a home defense pistol, would you rather have a light attached to it or a set of CT grips?

CT grips. Just like the ones I have. The light should be in your free hand. What if it's your kid or spouse up for a drink of water or a bathroom trip? Do you really want to have a gun attached to the flashlight you're shining on them? And bad guys can shoot at flashlights. You don't have to activate the laser until you have a target in sight.

CT would be my choice. I can hold a light in my off hand if needed.

The light makes sense for me. I feel much more capable with a two-handed grip. I also do not have any kids. I suppose using my auto in DA/SA manner is my last line of defense against unintentionally shooting someone.

I wouldn't shoot anyone without first verbally announcing my intentions or seeing that they were armed. If it were someone I knew, they'd have a chance to say so.

I don't own any CT grips but my HD setup consists of my Makarov and a flashlight at the bedside, and my xD with a Sig STL 900 light/laser/strobe close by. Being that there's no one else living in the house other than me and my girlfriend, my rationale is this: the Mak is there for quick access. The xD is there in the event that I KNOW an intruder is in the house and have the opportunity to do a sweep... Of course, it's probably better to hunker down and wait for the police but 9/10 times the perp will get away.

Streamlight TLR-2 laser/light if the gun has a rail.

My defense handguns that don't have rails are equiped with Crimson Trace lasers.

An example of the laser/light.

Before.
The target about 15 yards away.

After.
Shooting from the hip. It isn't necessary to raise the gun to eye level.

But actually the Streamlight TLR-2 is on a S&W M&P 15-22. The gun is set up like my main HD gun, a Bushmaster AR.
The Smith 22 is handy for after dark rifle laser/light practice in the back yard, where the .223 noise would be a little excessive.
