Simply seeing how fast you can flick on a flashlight and blast a target in front of you doesn't really correlate with anything.
This. Fun drill, so keep us posted, but I can see no scenario where I’d be up and poking around with both holstered light and gun, then suddenly hear a noise and start moving quickly with both. But like I said, fun drill.
