    Left handed too. When it comes to light and no lasers: 10:30 with a pressure switch mounted at 12:00. I have really liked using an X300U at 12:00 on SBRs though... (I know, not a choice).

    Lefty. Tailcap activation. I mount lights at about 11:00 with activation by the support hand (right) thumb over the top rail.

    Right handed shooter, no laser.

    1st choice: Scout light at 1:30 with remote switch on top rail.

    2nd choice: Scout light at 10:30 with no remote switch.

    I am right handed and mount the light at 10:00. I shim the mount until the brightest part of the light beam covers my shot group at 15 feet.

    Right-handed, I currently run a Streamlight TLR-1 HL on 45* Offset M-Lok. Just a tad bit barrel shadow.

    Only lefft-handers are in our RIGHT minds though...

    Southpaw, laser at 12 (top) with its tape at 3 rear controlled by base of thumb/palm, pushbutton light at 3 front with thumbrest between the two position my thumb just a twitch away from Light It Up. Admittedly, this setup is for a Discreet Carry AR pistol meant for hot-loaded Mk 262, I would probably set up a patrol rifle differently but it seems to be a good ergonomic fit.
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    I only have tailcaps so left side 10:30. But also in front FSP at 12:00 and I have one Colt 10.3 6945 at 12:00 bedside boomer.

    So for me, 10:30 or 12:00
