Is the lantern grip better than the pistol grip?
KEITH C Absolutely, in fact I don't know why they even sell the pistol grip. The pistol grip in my experience requires much more effort as you will feel the need to extend your arm. to aim it. On the other hand with the lantern grip you tend to relax you arm and lightly balance the lantern under you on your fingertip moving the beam where you want it instead of aiming it. After ten to twenty minute the difference makes the lantern grip the clear choice.
