2) For a light I think you are better to have a handheld flashlight and training for tactical reasons. I plan on this for me... my subcompact doesn't have a rail for the light anyway (though I could add one)
1) I'd be surprised if you don't like them!
Meps, IMO, are the brightest appearing of all the night sights, with the front sight being a bit brighter than the rear, to aid acquisition and orientation.
2) Quite a few people prefer this approach!
The real advantage of a weapon-mounted light is a convenience thingy...
A weapon light keeps one hand free to open doors, call 911, etc.
A weapon light keeps everything together, so under stress, there's less stuff to get left behind or separated.
But proper use of a weapon light requires forethought, training and practice. For example, a good weapon light will flash-light an entire room by skipping the beam off the ceiling.
