Gun Porn: G17 with TLR-1

Let there be light!

I mentioned a while back that I'd be getting a rail mounted light for my Glock after my experience shooting in the dark with a handheld light.  Well, there it is above.  A Streamlight TLR-1 (got it on Amazon).  The light is super bright and easy to operate.  Mounting and dismounting is quick and easy which is a plus since this is my IDPA gun as well as my carry gun and the light has to come off for IDPA matches.  

I also picked up another DSG Alpha holster that can accommodate the Glock with mounted light and a DSG single mag holder.  I prefer to carry the double mag holder but there are times I'd like something a little easier to conceal and a little more comfortable.  

I'll have to get out on the range soon.  Later this week I'm going to have some night sights installed and I'm not opposed to adding some Crimson Trace Laser Gripes as well.  I'm thinking of buying another G17 (maybe a 19) before I do that though.  The laser gripes also can't be used in IDPA and it would be nice to have a dedicated carry gun and then a dedicated competition gun.  Work is slowing down though so we'll have to see about that.

Nice set up, but I can't see myself buying another gun just to get a rail. I'll continue to do it the old fashioned way! :-)

You do tend to put all your money into the rifles anyway, from what I've seen!
