Any Ideas for laser/light combos? Does Lumens matter?

I have a Remington Versa Max Tactical Semi-Auto but it really doesn't make a difference. Mounted the same as a pump action.

There's no one right answer for this. In my opinion, it depends on the use. For home defense, I firmly believe the spray is more important. A wide beam covers considerably more area than a narrow beam, and a wide beam will allow you to see more of a room. I use a cheap (fairly) laser/ light combo from Sun Optics. It's advertised as 200 lumens (might be 250, lol). Either way it has worked considerably better than I thought it would. I've put about 300 rds through the gun since I zeroed the laser, and it is still as true as the day I sighted it in. The beam is wide, and its bright enough to blind a bad guy, but not too bright to blind me. To me, its perfect for home defense.

However, I would not use this light on anything I plan to shoot past 20-25 yards.
