First borrow one to test. The 3rd gen 40's don't always function properly with lights attached.

Ahh, in that case you should be fine. I persoanlly feel the TLR-1 is a great light at a great price. I've used them for years and they are very durable and bright. Only better light in my opinion is the much more expensive surefire lights.

I went with the Streamlight TLR-3 on my G23. A buddy of mine let me borrow his Surefire X300 and I liked it, but it is larger then my TLR-3 and 3x as expensive($70 vs $220+). Since the largest Glock I own is a 23 I went with the smaller light. Down the road if I get the G22 or G35 I'll go with the X300.

Here's a link to my G23 w/TLR-3 attached. Its post #2785

I have the glock tactical light / laser and I am very happy with it. Shoots fine on my 22 and 23's. I leave it on the 22 all the time for HD. Carry the 23's and 27. Light seems pretty bright to me. I have had my daughter stand at the end of our hallway with it and I can't see her behind it due to it's brightness.

well maybe ill give the glock light a try and see how it is. in a self defense situation, i just need a light that will give me something to aim at, doesnt have to be ridiculously bright i dont guess. thanks for the replies :).
