Beside Eli, anyone use them? There is a whole new generation of them coming out for sub compact pistols. I am thinking of getting a Streamlight TRL-6 for my PM9 when more holsters are available...........

If you're smart in how you use it, it takes a lot less practice to be effective with than trying to run a handheld light and a pistol at the same time.

My argument was that when checking out a bump in the night, i did not want to find myself pointing a loaded gun at our teen that snuck out, or later that she ket herself in to surprise us.
Of course i never stopped to think how a flashlight lights up a room or area without pointing it straight at a person or object.
For now my older P229 remains my house gun, but my next will have a rail and light.
Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.... now who's bringing the hot wings? :jester:
But, I realize, now, that having a gun mounted light is only another option, which is the same argument I have made (from the other side) for laser sights. Obviously, if LEO's and soldiers think they are a good thing, they must be...if used properly.
I will probably get one and mount it on one pistol, to give me the option to carry it if I think the situation merits it.
I'm a minimalist when it comes to handguns.
