This is a really good point. If you have the light mounted and "loose" the weapon, you loose both. But if you have the weapon in one hand and light in the other and loose one, you still have the other. You may still be able to shoot or may be able to temporarily distract your assailant. Smacking your assailant one the side of the head or in the throat with the light even works.
