    Where/how do you carry your light?

    I just bought a Surefire E2D Executive Defender (with strike bezel) - it's awesome! I'm wondering if folks could share where/how you carry your light on a daily basis.

    Thanks,

    I carry my Surefire 6P in a Blackhawk light carrier at about 8:00, just behind my spare mags.

    Usually just a pocket.

    I keep my light weak side, back pocket and head up.

    I have considered a flashlight sheath but do not want it too close to my mags. I can see myself trying to reload my light thinking I pulled a fresh mag. Once I started carrying a flashlight I use it all the time. I do not want to show off my mag pouch going for my light so it stays lower in my back pocket.

    Weak side (back or side) head up...lanyard hanging out of pocket. Once in a while, around my neck inside a shirt...

    I use one at work so I carry it in a "Nite Ize" pouch with a pair of dikes, leatherman wave, a greenie ( small screwdriver), and a curcuit alert voltage detector. I carry it on my strong side because I can't CC at work ( metal detectors). When not at work I carry the light in my weak side pocket. I'm looking for a nice set up for the light and a spare mag.

    Thanks for all of the input. For those of you who carry it on your belt, am I right in assuming that you are using some type of cover garment? A flashlight on my belt at work would look very out of place given the dress code. However, evenings/weekends belt would work fine. Anyone got a recommended holster for a Surefire E2D Executive Defender?

    Mine's under my cover garment, though if it weren't, it wouldn't look too out of place in most environments.

    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill

    My E2D is in my shirt pocket right now, but I also use the Surefire holster when it sits on my belt. http://www.surefire.com/maxexp/main/.../154/sesent/00 (model V20 or V21).

    Be careful, the beveled edges of the Defender can tear up clothes and furniture.
