    Rethought about having a light on my firearm

    The other night we lost power for a while. I had to get up and use the bathroom and it was very dark as the night lights were out all over the house. Glock 43x is my EDC and my nightstand gun.....no rail so no light. ordered a solution for that.... https://www.recovertactical.com/prod...43-43x-and-48/

    I'm not sure I like the idea of using a loaded firearm to find my way to the bathroom. I do want lights on my bedside table gun and that looks like a good solution for the 43x. I just keep a flashlight by the bed too for when I need to see but don't want to shoot something below my hand but above the toilet.

    OK, I can understand how my post was not understood as I intended it. My fault. I did not mean to imply I would use my gun as a flashlight. I do have a small flashlight on the night stand. I do not need one to locate the bathroom. I mean if the power is off and I think there is someone in the house and I need to get out of bed.....I want to have a light on my gun to identify a target if needed. I do not want to hear a noise and shoot at it, but I do not want to wait till an intruder is at my bedroom doorway either. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

    No apologies! This is more fun!

    BTW - I saw the stream light TLR6 can attach without an rail. Only 100 lumens but in a dark house it’ll easily get the job done.

    Looks like Surefire’s slimline solution requires the 43x MOS. But I think it should work on that rail attachment.

    I thought about the Stream light TLR6, but then it would not be transferable to any other firearm. Getting a universal light/laser for most of my firearms seems like a better idea to me. Any one I get will take a little time ....have to reload my piggy bank. Once again I have expended my monthly gun allowance $$ early in the month on various items here and there.

    I rented a backhoe to dig the hole my gun allowance has to get itself out of from this month.

    You might want to look at holsters before picking a light - they can blow a budget too if you have to get one custom made.
