    guys .. i'm looking for some feedback on a 'conceptual design' before we move to a 'physical design' on a light mount that actually fits properly to the Hunter X22 stock ..

    one of the guys on another forum asked the question "why?" ... after a few others contributed i posted the following and thought it may be beneficial to copy/paste it here too...

    good question...
    the idea originally grew from my use of the Hunter X22 to control pests/predators around my property & chickens. ie. controlling skunks, coons, fox, fisher, etc.

    The idea then kinda grew into, "why not have a slick mounted light on the .22 as a fun plinker"? It's already a 'geeked out toy'! So the proverbial and often not spoken ... because it's just pretty darn cool consideration has come into play too.

    i'm throwing the idea out on forums ... hoping for some open minds and exchange of ideas...
