At night, we are not able to see what is happening and therefore we go for sources of light that we can use for us to see through the darkness. In order to see at night, we will use torches. The major disadvantage with torches is that the might be too big such that carrying them around can be tiresome. Most people thus opt for flashlights, flashlights are smaller in size and much efficient to use. There are different types of of flashlights that you can buy and this will depend on on what you are going to use it for.

A tactical flashlight can be affixed to the rifle if it has a lengthy barrel but if it does not then you will only have to hold it by yourself.
