"AA" mini mag/shotgun...

years ago, i got a clamp that allows you to mount a mini mag flashlight to the end on my shotgun. well after several rounds put down range this fall, i noticed that the light did not work the other day. i thought the batteries were dead... i opened the back of the light only to fint the batteries had leaked! i took the light off the shotty and took the light all the way apart. the batteries had ruptured... the rear battery "+" end was crushed completely... this was from recoil im sure. they were duracell batteries.

im not sure what to do, the light will go back to grainger (it has a lifetime warry). when i get a new light, is there anything i can do to keep the same from happening? (yes- remove the batteries when using the shotty for fun/plinking)....

I went through the mini-mag shotgun mounted phase several years ago. And what ended it was the tendency for the light bulbs to 'back out' of their sockets due to recoil.

They'd work fine on a rifle, but a shotgun simply kicks too hard.
