    I just purchased (still waiting for it to come in the mail) a streamlight tlr-1s with the remote pistol switch. I mainly purchased it for home defense but thought it would be handy to have if I leave the house at night and plan on primarily being outside. I've read that some have had issues with the remote switch being wide enough to make it hard to holster/draw. I have a G23 and was wondering if anyone has or knows of a holster that works with this setup.

    Thanks

    Thanks. I've been watching videos on youtube about making your own kydex holsters. That COULD be an option. Heck, if I can make good holsters maybe I could sell them :whistling:

    Thanks again

    I use and love the safariland 6378. Not the best concealment holster but it's nice

    I picked up a rogue tactical concealment it's a great holster.

    Make sure your gun runs with the light attached though. I am having lots if FTF with my g23 with tlr 1

    I have DSG Arms Alpha Holster (a Raven clone) for my G23 with the tlr-1 attached. I prefer it configured to be worn OWB. Conceals quite well under a dark T-shirt.

    Not sure why anyone would want to carry a pistol with a light attached to it but to each their own.

    To me it makes more sense than carrying a flashlight. I would rather have a good grip on a pistol than worrying about holding a flashlight and shooting (if something when down). Or do you mean you never carry at night?

    I carry with a button down shirt untucked and am a bigger guy. I was looking at these holsters. You think it would work with my carry method?

    Zero concealment, great holsters and a good price. All Leo's too

    Give it a try..might be able to. Try with the belt attachment should hold it closer..

    It maybe harder to conceal as the holster is a little longer due to the light part.

    I had to give up my x300 for the same reason. Jammed 2-3 times per each magazine with hollowpoints.
