It’s a re-occurring issue every week, several times a week. Someone walks into our store with a gun they just got and want to put a light on it. That’s the easy part, the hard part is finding a holster for it. If you are looking for something other than the Streamlight Flashlights or Surefire Flashlights your holster options are going to dwindle. The Streamlight TLR-1 is brighter than ever but if you have a preference in activating the toggle, the Surefire X300U is another option but it will cost you more. There are plenty of other flashlights you can use, Olight Flashlights, Inforce Flashlights, but you will not find many holster options.
If you are looking for a laser light combination, it’s Streamlight TLR-2 or Surefire X400U and it’s the same old story. Some nylon companies have options but not that many. Blackhawk made a major market mistake years ago by only catering to Ziphos flashlights which nobody used, and finally got around to making holsters that took the Streamlight Flashlights and Surefire Flashlights. Check out Safariland Holsters, holster fit guide before you buy a gun, because they really are the place to go to find out what your options are.
