House lights

Hello, Mr. Ayoob. I have a great deal of respect for you.
As a retired LEO, I have searched plenty of houses for many types of suspects, including my own house. I know it is best to stay in your safe room with loved ones and await the police but say it becomes necessary to search your own home. Every one stresses a good flashlight and some type of laser on your handgun. I use a good flashlight but one of the first things I do in my house when searching it is turn on the overhead and or lamp light to the room and size up anything when the room is completely lighted.
I feel this will not give your position away any more than using a flashlight and I turn on the light to get a total perspective of the entire room.

I have not heard this advocated or advised much in the many books and TV shows I have watched on this subject. In fact I wonder why it is talked about so little, If nothing else to say don't do this and why. I feel this is an overlooked advantage.
How do you feel about this?

It is easier to be critical than correct and most people tend to take the easy way!

By and large, I agree with you.

Congratulations on getting through to retirement!
