I've been thinking of adding a light to my edc setup. My question is for those of you who also keep a light on you at all times. Do you have a weapon light mounted on your firearm or carry a separate hand held light such as a Surefire G2 or similar? If you carry a separate light, how do you carry it? Pocket, holster made for the light, or something else?
I've been considering adding on an accessory for my Raven Concealment holster that attaches to my mag carrier and can hold a Surefire light securely. They also offer a separate carrier for the light that doesn't attach to the mag carrier. This might give more options, such as not needing to carry the mag holder to have the light on my belt and also be able to conceal my spare mag when grabbing the light. However, would it be better to just stick it in my pocket and save a few bucks from something I don't necessarily need?
Or option #3, get a TLR-1 and mount it on my G23 and carry it together in a holster made to accommodate a light? There are only 2 things keeping me from going directly to this. First is the reports of problems with Glocks chambered for .40 that have lights attached. Basically there have been problems reported. Second is if I needed a light but did not want to be sweeping the area with my firearm. So I see the separate light as more versatile except that I will then be firing the gun one handed by bracing my wrist on top of my off hand holding the light if I needed both together.
So, my semi-long winded post comes to a close. Pros and cons of each anyone? Anecdotes? suggestions? And of course thanks in advance.
