    Do you EDC with a weapon light?

    I'm just curious to know how many people EDC or have EDC a pistol with a light attached? If so, care to share your experience and what pistol and light you're running? Pictures are welcome.

    Nope never had a desire to.

    I do not. That said, my bedside weapon does have a light. And, I do keep lights in accessible places throughout my home and vehicles.

    No real use for a light. I do have Tritium sights on it . My CC is meant to be light as compact when carried as I can get it. That is why I CC a LC9S thin light and fits me well. Conceals without a lot of BX. Start dressing it up it becomes a boat anchor.
    Yes Taurus really does suck. But in fairness they sure turned it around fast on warranty repair. Time will tell

    I carry a flashlight, separate from my pistol, daily. I keep a flashlight next to my pistol on the nightstand every night.

    I EDC a handhand flashlight on my belt (next to my weapon). There are too many things in this old world that I need to shine a light on without pointing a weapon at it. The weapon is set up with night sights (TruGlo TFX Pro) for both daylight and low-light use.

    Nope, not for carry. Flashlight (compact and bright) next to the gun on the nightstand.

    No lights on any of my weapons other than muzzle flash. I have flashlights in every room of the house and a couple in each vehicle.

    Well as of now I am the only “yes” vote. I have a TRL1 on an XD compact tactical.45. I also carry a hand held light. It doesn’t add that much size or weight, but it does provide me with an option.

    No.

    Don't want baggage hanging from my guns, besides which none of my favorites are equipped for attaching baggage.
