    Just an idea I had after seeing the cover of one of those Clint Smith/Thunder Ranch advertisements where he has a light hooked up to a SxS shotgun.

    Is it feasible/advisable/beneficial to rig a Surefire to a 30-30 or SxS for HD? If so, how would you do it (other than duct tape)?

    Electrical tape. It's cheaper and blends better.

    But seriously. There's some adapters on the market for adding rails to your gun. Dunno names or where to get 'em, but I've seen 'em.

    Use a barrel mount for a shotgun a 410 barrel mount might fit.

    I saw one guy use stainless steel hose clamps to secure his light.

    I'm thinking electrical tape + surefire = FTW.

    The hose separator is the way to go. I have a light mounted on an 1897 shotgun for keeping varmits out of the hen house using the hose separator and it works great. For home defense you will need a light that accepts a remote pressure switch....which I do not have, but the hen house varmits don't shoot back.
