Default Rail mount flash light

Thinking of getting 1 for my home protection pistols glock 23 and a taurus 24/7 pro.
What are some tactical guys opinions?
I would like to keep it under $150.00.
My glock 23 has a lasermax guide rod laser and night sights.
Thanks

I'm far from tacti'cool, so maybe my opinion doesn't count.
I just demand a good product for a fair price.

Streamlight TLR-1 and/or TLR-2
Streamlight makes great products and they're tough as nails.
And the big bonus, they don't rape your wallet like Surefire does.

I have several of these on different firearms, pistol, shotgun and rifle.
TLR-1 (light) and TLR-2 (light/laser) in various models, e.g. Strobe and with other options such as remote pressure pad activation.

I just looked at the tlr-1 at Academy today it seemed nice but I'm not sure if I would like the finger switch for brief light.
I am still considering it thanks for your input.

I use a Streamlight TLR1 HL a little over the budget but worth it to me. Plus the 630 lumens is more of a flood vs a beam and doesn't blind my eyes in a house. The finger activation o the streamlights arnt much of a bother...

If you flick the switch one way it stays on, the other way it stays on as long as you hold pressure on it.

Personally I really like the Momentary-On feature with a twitch of my finger.
It is very easy to use and with Strobe it is extremely disorientating.

They also offer a pressure pad activation switch if that's what you want.
But it is geared towards long guns.

The Streamlights are really the only weapons lights worth a spit that falls into your budget.
The HL models are very nice, but the S strobe models are too.
And the standard C4 LED 300 Lumens is more than bright enough for most self defense needs, and again the strobe is very disorientating.

TLR-1S for only $99. at www.primaryarms.com
http://www.primaryarms.com/streamlig...ns/p/stl69210/
TLR-1HL for only $114. if you have to have the 630 Lumens.

I should correct my price that is per light for $150.00
I do want a light with a fast on off for quick looks, also with the stay on feature, not really interested in the strobe I have been told it can disorient even the person holding the gun.
I do like the looks of the TLR1 HL
keep them coming guys thanks.
