    Thought I'd pass this along

    Just happened upon a site that seems to be pretty complete. I came across this ad http://www.centerfiresystems.com/LIT-PIS.aspx. I figured for the price what the heck. I plan on putting it on my Glock 23 for bedside HD use.

    Might be a total bust, but hell I've dumped 10 times that on holsters that I've never used!!!!

    Will post pics when I get it installed.

    plentyofpaws, BEWARE,

    I did the same thing recently. Bought an inexpensive light/laser combo for my 24/7 home defense gun. I took the setup out to the range after zeroing in the laser at 21 feet. After 1 mag, 15 shots the light lens was covered with powder residue. I was shooting outside in daylight so I don't know how the light was truly affected but it was severely darkened. The second mag saw the laser go out on the 4th shot. It seems the entire insides blew out forward from the pressure of a battery spring. The wires all disconnected, rendering the light useless as well. The unit was a cheapy in the $50 range. Glad it happened during a range session and not in an HD situation. If I do it again, I'll only buy a reputable unit with a warranty at a gun shop.

    I would never put a white light on the gun unless I was an officer on a S.W.A.T. team. In order to use the flashlight, the weapon has to be aimed at the object in question. It may turn out to be your better half or some other non target.
    Now a Laser aiming device is another story. I have a Laserlyte mounted on my H.D. gun.

    In order for a laser aiming device to serve it's purpose while it's activated, the weapon has to be pointed at the object as well so what do you mean by "another story"?

    I think he means that you only point the laser at something you intend to shoot, while a light you might be pointing in order to see.

    You're probably right and it makes more sense to me when worded that way.

    I totally agree that pointing a gun (whether it has a mounted light, laser, or combo or not) at an object you are not prepared to shoot is dangerous and a bad idea however, actually shooting at it is in fact another story.

    Adhering to the rules of gun safety should be priority but I think one rule above all must never be broken. As long as you keep your finger off of the trigger and preferably out of the trigger guard until you are ready to shoot, even in a stressful situation and even if another rule has been violated, there will not be an undesired discharge.

    I guess that I wasn't clear. The flashlight would be in my off hand. It would be used to determine whether or not I had a real target or the cat. This way, the only time that the muzzle would be pointed at the target is when I have determined that I need to take the next step which is: "FREEZE DIRTBAG"

    I've got no opinion about that light.

    I just want to know what a $350 holster looks like.

    I bought one of those UTG (Under The Gun) Lights laser combos a while back. It'll work OK but the CR-123A will burn out pretty fast if you use it any. I had a set of rechargeables that I had bought a while before being it happens to be the same battery an old camera I have used. eBay sells the batteries and chargers pretty cheap.

    I never had a problem with the unit on a couple of my pistols. I just don't really like gadgets like that on my guns I found and don't use it anymore. It's still around here somewhere. Still works. I think I got mine on eBay a little cheaper than that site showed them.
