    Anyone got one? I have a TLR-1 but have bee tossing the idea around of getting a TLR-3 for my G30SF. I'm not concerned about the lumens, just the portability mainly.

    Is it smaller/shorter on the rail? The TLR-1 looks like a brick on the end for some reason. I want to carry my G30 in a my Tommy's gun pack at night when walking my dog.

    I'm also debating a Raven / NTAC light mounted holster to use with my G19 the TLR-3 just seems so much more compact. Any thoughts?

    The TLR-3 was made for compact and sub-compact guns so it would work well with your 30. If you're not worried about the lumens I'd go with it.

    Sits out a little further on my 19 then I would like, but still reachable with finger. Other then that, it's a great little light.

    Just OK
    I use my TLR-3 with my M&P compact and PF-9. It works well and I'm happy with it. I would buy a second one if I had the funds.

    I have one and love it. IMO it sits in the perfect position on the rail. In a two-handed grip, my left thumb hovers naturally over the switch.

    Portability comes with a compromise.

    To work effectively, no matter how bright the point source is, a minimum reflector size to the throw the light where it's needed is necessary.

    With only one power cell doing the job, expect a shorter run time too.

    All that considered, if portability is of paramount concern, this looks like a good option.

  7. This.

    Small, lightweight, inexpensive, well-built.
