Gen 4 G17 with RMR and SF X300 WML.
I like the beaver tail option on the Gen 4/5 Glocks. They seem to fit my hand better, particularly if there are no finger grooves (for compact models). I would say that they slightly point less high as a result of the bit of extra material on the top of the back strap. It allows me to get a firm, high grip on the Glock and of course no slide bite concerns. IIRC, I use the medium with the beaver tail.
H&K P30LS, 20 round mag, TLR1 light
a pistol grip Pump 12G and a Bulldog 44
XD-45 Compact, 13-round magazine, TLR-3, 230-grain Gold Dots (standard pressure).
If I have to reach for a handgun in the dark, especially if I'm half asleep, that grip safety gives me a bit of comfort.
I mean them no harm... Just Death....
20C....because we have mountain lions here periodically.
I realized I posted an older pic. The gun currently has a CGS Mod9sk instead of the longer CGS Kraken. Makes it lighter and handier while still being completely hearing safe.
Well, technically it is a handgun.
Glock 17 Gen5 Glock Ameriglo Sights, Streamlight TLR-1s. This light is 300 lumens and that works for my old guy eyes. I had a TLR-HL (800 lumens) and because of the off wht walls in the house it was too bright for me. The weapon is loaded with 124gr HST and Funstick as a back up also loaded with 124gr HST. Regards to all at GT from this Glock Fan Old Boy. Always be careful out there.
M&P 1.0 .40 full size--------Maverick Security 8-shot for when things get really bad
Once every winter or so I will have mountain lion tracks in the snow on my front doormat first thing in the morning. Who needs caffeine?
I agree - I have had this discussion before on many gun forums.. And, I'm always told how I am wrong...
I woke up a few years ago, and used a handheld flashlight to find something on the side of the bed. When it shined directly on the wall by me - it blinded the hell outta me... I saw spots for a while.
Some of these gun lights are just TOO bright to wake up and use in the middle of the night. I get that a cop needs a bright light. If you are awake and checking your house for a potential issue... You want bright too...
But when you wake up in the middle of the night - there is such a think as too bright. And, WAKING up and using it is not the same as just sitting in a dark room for a little while and testing if your bright light bothers you.
I have the same TRL1s for the same reason. I have not gone brighter for a weapon light for the same reason you mentioned.
I've had this exact conversation many times. People think turning the lights out and testing their flashlight is adequate. Waking up at 3am is a whole different situation. Your eyes are not capable of functioning with bright light after being closed for a few hours.
Where there are deer, there are mountain lions. They have drank out of my pool at night. All animals come in at night.
