    have been watching reviews on the olight weapon lights and was just wondering if anyone has any hands on experience with either the pl mini or the pl 2

    None with the weapon light, but their other lights are excellent. Well designed too.

    I forget what model I have but it's 900 lumen's, the size of my thumb, and can be plugged into a cell phone charger.

    I have several of their hand held lights and they are very solid for the money. Not sure if you knew but Olight is having a big sale this weekend.

    Won this light from a firearm forum that is all but dead last few times I visited.This is definitely a nice light,150 lumens but the thing is,on my handguns I prefer a hand held light like my 2 c-cell maglight.One of the reasons is that I prefer not to use it in that fashion along with the extra expense of buying a holster that would accommodate it.I may however mount it on my Mossberg 500.

    I've been impressed with the reviews I've seen. I also ordered one of the Minis at 40% off this weekend. I may grab a baton if I see a deal on one I like.

    I have the PL Mini on my 19. I haven't run it very hard yet but it's been holding up to a few range trips. Significantly bright and dependable so far. Controls are pretty simple and are similar to a Surefire I was issued for work. I also have one of their tiny baton lights and it has become an essential piece of gear every day.
