    1. An Insight XTI Procyon mounted on my EDC M&P 45fs
    2. A Surefire E2D LED Defender next to my BUG

    I use a weapon mounted TLR-3 on my G23 while it's on the night stand. When carrying I keep my light in my weak side pocket.

    I chose 'no'. At night though sometimes I will keep a mini-maglite in my pocket.

    I don't spend a lot of time in dark places, honestly. At home there is always a maglite I would grab if something went bump in the night.

    I said yes - but that's not for normal daily carry - it's for when my CC goes to the nightstand for sleepy time.

    When my carry piece goes into nightstand mode, it sports a Procyon weapon light. When it goes into carry mode, no light is mounted, and if I expect to be out at night, sometimes I carry a surefire.

    Why would you want a light on a CC weapon? In case you have too............. damn I cannot even think of a ridciulously absurd scenario where I would need a light on my CC weapon. We are talking about the weapon we carry every day for personal defense right? Personal defense!

    What are you gonna do....a Wyatt Earp quick draw then stop turn your light on.....LOL. WML's on CC weapons are just tacticool absurdness.
    You may now carry on with your absurd non-directional bantering.

    the bounce lighting is a novel idea but i dont see the practicality of having a light mounted to a firearm and having to point a firearm at something or someone to positively identify it...kinda breaks the rules of safe gun handling...a hand held lamp can be pointed in any direction, does not require drawing the firearm to utilize and can be a very effective weapon hand to hand...

    clearing your home with a long gun with an attached lamp i an interesting idea also...i dont to light up uncle jim with a shotgun in the middle of the night because his prostate told him to rush to the bathroom...

    Be careful with Fenix lights. I have 3, they are good lights, but their switches suck. All 3 tail switches either broke or don't work correctly.
    I can't trust them to work when I need them to, I bought a Surefire EE2D LED and carry it every day (but not on my pistol).
