Last night around 3am my Dog went ballistic although nobody else in the house heard anything. After he continued a few minutes I grabebd my XD with the Ledware light and armed with nothing but underpants I went to see what was going on. I looked out the window and saw nothing, and then I saw a bush flinch. I opened the door, stepped out and strobed the area with the light, @ 3am it makes a HUGE difference between on and off! After strobing one bush I saw someone start running though the neighbors hard and down the street. Honestly I probably would have shot the guy if I had chambered the gun but for some reason I didnt. Police came, took a report and left. Moral of the story, if you have the means, I highly recommend you get yourself a gun light!
