    I would stick with SureFire or Streamlight... both are reliable and bright. Don't go cheap on flashlights/tac lights... you will regret it.

    Different models have different features and are different sizes, pick the one that best suits your needs.

    Yup......either StreamLight or Surefire.

    All the rest are just wanna-be's.

    For the money, I like the TRL1 the best. I have two of them.

    I put that same light on my SIG P-226 Tac-Ops.

    You made a very good choice.

    Called S/W Performance An Ask About What Size Front Hi Viz Sight I Would Need As There Are 3 Different Types, They Explained That The One That would Fit For My Needs Would Be Approximately .025 Off In Height , Not Going For The Long Shot So Hope This Comes Together Soon.

    I'm not a fan of mounted lights on a handgun.First problem is you are creating a target every time that light is switched on,the gun is naturally in front of you.The second problem is you are breaking a major rule of gun handling,your muzzle is sweeping everything and anyone around.A handheld light can be used away from your body,and you now have 2 weapons.Of course you have to be able to shoot one handed.

    A firearm mounted light is a supplemental tool. There are pros and cons to it's use. Like most everything else, training in the use of one is very beneficial. It's not advisable to put one on your handgun w/o proper training. And yes, I know that many do just that.
