<p><strong><span>Neck Index</span></strong><span>&mdash;Draw your handgun and hold it in a one-handed grip, then draw your flashlight, grip it in your non-shooting fist, and position the light against your neck on your non-shooting side. Now as you sweep with your body and your gun hand, your head and neck will naturally follow and so will the beam of your light. <strong><span>Pros</span></strong>: Works with small or large lights. Works well with tail cap-activated lights. Allows simultaneous illumination of both your sights and the target. Easy to search without muzzle sweep. Easy to transition into flashlight strike.
