    Just got a Streamlight TLR-1 for my GLOCK 19. Now the hard part, trying to find a holster for it.

    What holster do you guys use for handguns with a light?

    Personally, If it's for home defense, I wouldn't use a holster.
    Secondly, it's a 9mm and I wouldn't carry that for personal protection.
    Lose the lite.

    Sir,

    Please don't turn my thread into a 9mm vs other caliber debate. I'm aware of the pros and cons of 9mm.

    Thank you.

    If you were aware of the pro's and con's of 9mm vs .45, you wouldn't have bought a 9mm in the first place.

    I was offering up my opinion of a holster built for your particular weapon.
    You did not say what use it was for.
    If it was for cc, I doubt you could find a carry holster that would conceal such a behemoth of a pistol with a tac lite under normal circumstances without a large flannel jacket.

    You have a flashlight attached to a pistol. I'm assuming you dont want a holster to carry around your house so that would only indicate that you want a holster that fits your G model with a flashlight that is concealable for personal carry.

    Good luck.

    p.s.
    Tac lites are gay imho. Junk to stick on the end of your pistol to make it look cool.
    your better off with a crossover and mag lite. That way at least your body mass is off center of the gun by 14 inches or so.

    Example: Your headed back from a late nite movie with the wife and kiddo's.
    Your unlocking your car door in a dimly lit parking garage.
    7 cars over you hear a LOUD "CLANK". You draw your "cough" flashlight" which happens to have a 9mm attached to it.

    Turns out it's a family of 5 changing out a spare tire because of a flat tire.
    Brandishing a weapon may not get you time served but it will certainly set you back a few hours at HQ.

    And in the home?.....there's no way if I hear a bump in the night that I am willing to compromise myself by torching the area with an onboard tac lite.

    Mag lite,weaver stance, crossover.

    A bad guy won't know the difference between a 9mm or anything else when you put two in his chest and one in his head.

    There is a reason why the military uses 9mm for there sidearm.

    Um, you know they have improved flashlights since the 80's, right? Maglites suck. To the op, I would not carry a tlr like that, but I have a light on all my hd guns. It's stupid not to, especially when my go to gun is a 12 gauge pump. Try holding a maglite and running one of those.

    And to answer the question, I know bladetech makes kydex holsters that will work for you. If you're carrying the G19 though, I'd still recommend selling the TLR and buying a Surefire led handheld, or even one of the cheap new Streamlight handhelds. Great choice on the G19 - an excellent carry gun!

    Yeah....There is a reason they use 9mm- Someone a long time ago signed the Geneva Convention and since then there have been leagues of lawyers and human rights advocates that have tried to enforce that 9mm standard. As well as the rest of the world using the 9x19 standard.

    Ask the guys who carried 45ACP rounds until the 1980's what they think about 9mm....

    Here is a super in depth evaluation from Massad Ayoob: http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0BQY/is_3_54/ai_n24232193/

    The Coast Guard (with the exception of forces deployed with the Navy) use .40 cal.


    OP- What are you going to use the gun for?? A similar thread on another forum: http://ingunowners.com/forums/accessories_and_gear/114370-glock_19_w_light_-_holster_needed.html

    Safariland, bladetech, atomic dog, comp-tac. All company's make glock 19 holster that will fit a light.
    And as for 9mm effectiveness, I haven't had any trouble ventilating a couple dudes with 9mm gold dot.

    Ok, I just read down and see alot of people saying to not have a weapon mounted light. Should I address this here in this thread or make a new one, OP its up to you.
    I will just say off the bat a weapon mounted light is the way to go.

    X2. 9mm is a fine choice for personal protection.

    It is a good possibility the DA would have a field-day with a head shot in a self defense situation. Some might argue it goes well beyond reasonable force required to defend yourself from the threat.

    Better to deal with the repercussions of the actions necessary to secure myself and those I care about than not act and die. I will never hesitate to give someone the good news whether it be here state side or overseas.

    I agree with you 100% on that. However, putting a 10mm or .45ACP to the chest will most likely not need a follow up shot to the head.

    false. All depends on the situational variables. I train to continue to put rounds on target till I see good effect no matter what caliber or weapon I am using. I have seen a guy take 3 rounds of 7.62 and keep coming.
