Post your pics and/or thoughts about the current crop of rail mounted tactical lights and lasers. :)

I have a Glock 34 that is my night stand gun, and it has a tac light on it - a Glock light. I think it has its uses on something you might need in the dark for protection.

Is that an M3? I can't tell.

I shot my gun w/ the light on for several rounds, and I luckily had no problems. I then took it off just so I didn't get the light full of gun powder. The G34 has a longer barrel, though, and the light does not extend past the muzzle. So, it never really got that dirty at all.

Great light for the money. If you are like me and not a LEO and just want something to slip on at night this is hard to beat.

I was tempted to get one of those lights for another gun - like the one U have on your XD. BUt, I only really need a light on my nightstand gun.

Why do they charge so much for these suckers :p

Niche market, I guess.

I have the X2L. Same one as tex45acp posted but with the laser dot. Fresh out of the box, it was shooting low and left at 7 yards.



I still use the iron sights at the range but I keep it on my gun for home defense. Acquiring a target seems so much quicker.

It has to be the size and brightness. That little light is at least 2X brighter that my 6D cell Maglite flashlight. I accidentally shined it into my sons eyes at a distance of about 10' when I first bought it. It took him about 5 minutes to be able to see again.........and that was in broad daylight. He told me it was like looking into the sun at high noon.

Well, if we're going to resurrect a long-dead 6-year-old thread, I might as well add a photo to it:



It is a Streamlight TLR-1 with a C4 LED. I've used it on Glocks in 9mm, .40, and .45ACP with no problems at all, as well as on several AR-style carbines. I was happy enough with this first one that I now own two of them, and several other Streamlight products. Good stuff, in my experience (no connection to the company, or any company that sells them, other than being a satisfied customer).
