How Do You Carry Your EDC Light?

If you carry one at all, where do you keep it?

My LE friend recently introduced me to the Surefire EDCL2-T, and whoops I ordered one. I'll probably chuck it in my back left pocket, as I typically don't put anything on my belt except my IWB G19.

    clipped to my off side pocket for the tactical eyeball melter (1500 lumen Olight M2R Warrior), and just tossed in the left pocket for the daily task light (Olight H1R Nova)

    EDC light? Kidding me? I already have to carry a wallet, keys, readers, cellphone, pocket .380, and sometimes a pen. Plus, I wear a watch. Enuff already! I'm not a donkey. 


    Besides, everywhere I go, even at night, is well lit.

    I hate carrying stuff. Wallet and keys, and my LC9s when I feel the need. That's it, and I'll leave as much of that behind as I can when I can. The LC9s has a lite on it.

    I don't carry a light. I just have a 9mm S&W in my pocket of holster that's under my untucked shirt when I'm dressed casual. When dressed for meetings or church I put it in a pocket. I don't worry about a holster so much or a light or any auxillary equipment except an extra mag. I figure if Scumbag has the drop on me I'm not going to try to spot light him or in daylight try to fast draw on him. I'll just try and see if I can catch him off guard to pull it on him and take him down, unless he's an active shooter in which case all you can do is try to pull it out and start shooting.

    It takes training to use a light and a handgun together, and I don't have that training. I carry a light in my bag that I use for carrying in a vehicle, but I rarely carry one in my pocket. I have a very powerful small flashlight that I can add to the rail on an AR-15, at home, but I don't leave it on all of the time.

    My light is always in my briefcase.  Normally, my pocket contains my wallet and a pocket knife.  

    I rarely “carry” on my body because I am often in Gun Free buildings.  Texas doesn’t ban guns in many places, but schools.  My truck has my LCP in it which I pocket carry when I go to legal places.

    On my belt in a holster opposite my gun. I do need another holster for it. The light got turned on by accident and melted a hole in the holster flap.

    If you've never shot in total darkness with only a flashlight, do yourself a favor and try it.  Very different from daytime shooting.  You loose all or most depth perception.  Initially, a lot of people aim with the light and point the gun.  We shoot a night match in the warmer weather and people who normally shoot well end up missing all 10 targets sometimes.  Don't shoot lead bullets at night.  After 2 or 3 shoots, you can't see through the smoke.

    We also have a carbine/pistol night match a couple times a year.  Running and gunning at night is tough.  Shooting distances beyond 20 or so yds you are only as good as your light.  A focused beam really helps.  At 50 and beyond with a rifle is fun in the dark if you have a decent optic or red dot.  But a good weapon mounted light is crucial.
