    My family will be going to my in laws' place in Colorado in Sept. It is 10 acres high up in the mountains at about 8500 feet. I am looking for some holster options to carry our G31 and G32 home bedside guns out there. Both guns have the GTL 21 tac light/laser on them. Just looking for something real cheap to have some protection when going to the bathroom, taking a walk, etc. The toilet situation is an outhouse and we will have our almost 4 year old with us. I know she will have to go at lesat once in the middle of the night. I would like to leave the lights on so my trusty old Uncle Mike's 10 dollar rig is out for that reason. Anything similar to that for light/laser set ups. I know .357 Sig is a bit underpowered for deep woods stuff, but we have what we have. My in laws have a .357 mag and .44 mag, but they will have those in their bedroom or on their person most of the time. For the record, we have had at least 3 black bear issues out there. One of which involved the bear going in a screen window and actually getting into the cabin, so I am not just blowing smoke or taking the guns for giggles. Definite mountain lions there confirmed by tracks, no grizzlies (yet).

    Thanks,

    Jeremy

    I would get a nice tac light and leave the weapon mounted light at home. If you're going to be walking your kid out to the outhouse there isn't really a reason to have your Glock drawn to illuminate anything.

    +1. For the $$, the tac light would be a wise purchase that you will use on multiple occasions, whereas the holsters only when needed

    I have maybe $600 dollars of Surefire lights. I was more wanting the mounted light/laser on there for the laser, should I God forbid, have a bear problem in a dark situation. I never go out there in the dark without a very good flashlight.

    I would never use my current mounted light to light my way. If I draw my gun I will be intending to use it.

    I would like to have holsters for night, range practice anyway, so any suggestions??

    Not necessarily cheap, but Raven makes holsters for exact fit with a gun and different lights. Nice quality Kydex.

    Are they OWB paddle style? I will look. I am looking at Fobus for 53 bucks each right now.
