  • Surefire X300 Ultra

    I recently switched to a Surefire x300 Ultra to mount on my Glock 22 gen 4 duty weapon. When using it for patrol functions, I've found it be very instinctual and rugged. I like the fact it gives you options to flip the toggles or push in for momentary on.

    However, I had our annual night qualifications last night and have found some issues with the light that I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered. Primarily, when I was firing and pushing the momentary toggle switch in, it would tear into the meat of my thumb. I don't have sissy hands, but it basically caused a blister on my thumb. When I tried to switch how I was activating the momentary light, using the tip of my thumb instead of the pad, the recoil would cause me to flip the switch on to constant. Has anyone ever experienced any similar issues? I really like the light, but I'm not wild about activation during firing.

    Never had any issues using mine.
    Getting shot hurts! Don't under estimate the power of live ammo. A .22LR can kill you! I personally feel that it's best to avoid being shot by any caliber. Your vest may stop the bullet, but you'll still get a nice bruise or other injury to remember the experience.

          Here is a pretty good video with some ideas about utilizing weapon-mounted lights.

            Thanks for the video. I've since moved back to the Inforce APL, but the video raises some cool thoughts and techniques on using pistol mounted lights. Appreciate it.

              Which version of the APL? Those have numerous issues and are prone to falling apart.
