    Got a good deal on one, figured I'd try it out.

    At first I was like :wiggle: because of the deal I got
    After a few minutes I was :ugh:
    Now I'm :rofl::wtc: at was a complete POS it is. Bright as hell, but god it would take forever to get used to it and apply it in a real scenario.
    WTF was Safariland thinking????

    I think it's cool because of how it's actuated, but, yeah, I would never buy one.

    I didn't realize you had to have it set in the middle, slide it on, and then lock it to a side. The weight offset to one side isn't as bad as I though, but the thought of putting it on in the field makes me LOL big time. I'll stick to my M3

    It's meant to be a field expedient light for officers who have non-light holsters

    I am just not a fan of the push button - it seems prone to NDs, and white light NDs could be more dangerous than firearm NDs sometimes, I wish it had a rocker

    I carry a non light holster (Safariland 070 SSIII), and one of these
    http://www.cactustactical.com/osc/blackhawk-cqc-dual-rail-accessory-belt-platform-p-16.html

    The big issue is it takes a pretty good amount of force to lock the bad boy to one side or the other. I'd be way more worried about a ND while locking it into place then when activating the light. The support hand thumb reaches with no problem on my Glock 22, and I have little girly hands.

    edit: I carry the single rail belt holster, not dual railed.
