    I have the TLR-1 on my Glock 19 but mine doesn't have the strobe feature. Great flashlight nonetheless.

    I got mine from Express Police Supply for the same price. I love the strobe feature and the fact that it is LED. I ordered a IWB Comp Tac Ctac light bearing holster for it. I love the set-up cause if I need the light I have it at all times. I want to try the Surefire X300 on my Springfield Armory Loaded Operator with full length rail. I will probably get the same holster for that set-up as well.

    TLR-1s has been on my duty gun for almost a year. "Tacticool" strobe disabled.

    It's a solid light that has held up very well.

    I got the TLR-1s a few months ago, I'm impressed needless to say. I put it in my range bag and the button must have got switched on, I took it out the next morning and the light was very dim but still on! I got a few more batteries from optics planet, I'll make sure not to do that again haha.

    I have both the 1 & 2s models. I have been very happy with both of them.

    Thanks for the info. I'm stuck between The TR-1 and the X300.

    Extra batteries!

    I bought 2 of these lights. During testing I accidentally pointed one at a wall mirror . . . had spots before my eyes for about 20 minutes. These lights are BRIGHT!

    I own both. Don't get me wrong, the X300 is awesome, but for the price, the TLR-1s is hard to beat.

    The main difference for me is the fact that the X300 can be activated momentarily by pushing in on the toggle switch, whereas the TLR must be rocked. The X300 works better for me on an AR because of this additional feature. For a pistol I am comfortable with either one.

    Love mine! Shot it with the light on the gun and now this GSR/possible muzzle flash burn is on the top. Anyone know how to clean that off?

    I don't think the strobe is for "coolness". It's to disorient your assailant, and not pinpoint you as a target.
