Modified FBI—This is one of the oldest handgun and flashlight techniques and the only widely used technique where the shooter holds the light away from his or her body. To effect this method hold the flashlight in a spear or "icepick" grip in your non-shooting hand then extend your non-shooting arm away from your body, up and to the side. Pros: Light held away from body. Improved manipulation of light for search. Allows searching without muzzle sweep. Peripheral light illuminates sights and target. Cons: Limits user to one-handed shooting grip. Can draw fire to head. Fatiguing.
