Target identification is one of your primary responsibilities as a gun user. Sadly many have failed in the responsibility throughout the years and good people have been hurt accidentally. You'll need a light of some sort to do that at night. While handguns lights have been around a long time, most are beset with nagging weight, bulkiness, brightness, or cost issues. Finally a light incorporating super bright Cree LED technology has come out that solves these problems. The Streamlight TLR-3. Weighing only 2.4 ounces and being super compact, the light preserves most of the handling qualities of your sidearm and will fit easily in most light-compatible holsters. It isn't waterproof beyond 1 meter but its tough and throws a nice, bright white concentric beam out to about 30 yards using just one CR2 cell. Because of its single cell power source and pistol limited range, users may want to limit the TLR-3 for pistol use since other lightweight options exist that can throw further. Run time is about 1.5 hours says the manufacturer. User interface on the light is simple and positive as shown. The TLR-3 is very adaptable as well but the selected rail key may not allow the light to snug up tight against the trigger guard. Once properly installed, the TLR-3 rides very securely. Compact, bright, affordable, and durable: As of 2009 the TLR-3 leads the pack in handgun lighting capabilities at its price point and should become a best seller for Streamlight. . ///////////// Nutnfancy Likeability Scale: 9.5 out of 10 ///////////// Music: www.partnersinrhyme.com

Price seems to have gone way up since 2009. Still like this light for the price point?

They must have raised the price after you let everyone know they were underselling it! lol.  I am in the market for one and amazon has it for $71.

Great light...had one for a long time now, basically since review came out...I've found putting the E attachment on is the most universal, worked for my 229 and now I have it on a Magpul rail section.
wheres the cheapest (reliable) place to buy this now?

Nutnfancy; wondering your thoughts on lasers, have not seen a video on this?  It seems like there are couple thoughts on this as I have a few laser pointers I use in construction as one just gives a nice red dot where I point however it is rather low power so you can not see the beam, as I see this being good in how it would help keep you a bit more camouflaged.  Now I have a high power green dot that is very bright however due to the high power it would telegraph where every you are standing, this may be a good intimidation factor but bad for defense.
