    I have the Glock Light/Laser combo but I imagine it is about the same as the stand alone light. I also have the Ledwave. Personally, I like the glock light better.

    The Ledwave's switch is too easy to turn on and there is no way to turn-off the light short of removing the batteries. I had put mine into my range bag and it got bumped on, eventually melting the plastic lens cap.

    Just my observations.

    Is there a reason why your not considering Streamlights M3 or a Surefire? Surefire is pretty expensive, but they are the best that I've used. Streamlights M3 is what my dept. issues. They have proven to be tough. You can get a M3 from Sports South Inc. for under 100 bucks.
    Just a little food for thought. Good luck.
