    The size of my...pants... isn't the limiting factor in this case.

    I'm having difficulty getting a kydex holster for this, or anyone who's willing to put an RMR cut on it. Still, it seems to work pretty well in Mexican carry.

    I just picked up a Modlite PL350 and a Phlster Floodlight holster to carry it in. Only worn it concealed a few times. So far so good.

    He noted that he DGAF what the warranty was. If it failed in the bush you *died*.

    No love for Streamlights? I'm playing with a TLR7A ... doesn't have a grip switch, but I find the press-and-hold-for-momentary and press-and-release-for-constant-on pretty easy and intuitive. No holster yet, of course, but as I said, it's a test drive.

    I see a lot of people who think they need a weapon light who don't even understand their mission. Most of us have the mission of being John Q. Public. We don't have much use for a Proactive Weapon tactics, pretty much everything we will do will be reactive. A weapon mounted light is mainly a proactive use tool. We are much better served with a quality handheld. Now on house guns, they are necessity. My around the house pistol is a Walther P99as with a Streamlight TLR1-HL carried in a Phlster Floodlight. I find it more comfortable to carry My EDC of two Glocks carried appendix than one with the light. And thus far in my experience, I will need the second gun more than a weapon light. All that said, if you can Comfortably Carry and conceal a weapon mounted light, more power to you. It's definitely not wrong, and it is another option to give you the edge. One should definitely not prioritize the light over a quality holster though.

    It does seem to be the trend currently that you must have a weapon light. There are only 3 lights for use on handguns that I would consider adequate, the Surefire X300, the Streamlight TLR1-HL, and the new Modlight. Unfortunately, many people trying to jump on the pistol light bandwagon end up going with poorer choices which increases the difficulty in finding a quality holster. Or they choose a light with subpar Illumination That is not much good Outside of the home (Streamlight TLR-7 & 6 for example).

    I have a Streamlight on ONE of my pistols with a concealment lux for my holster. I wear it when the locals decide they want to angrily "peacefully protest" in my area.. For the reasons stated above. Plus its setup if I need to step up in my "loadout" to go into retention holsters.
    My other and first setup doesn't have a WML I find it more balanced and faster then my second pistol. I have a fenix handheld that I carry regardless of weapon setup and it has a thyrm switchback which if I HAVE to use my pistol and handheld at the same time is the best way for me to do it. But again given most situations I won't be worried about light but it helps to have everything optimized..
