Hey G&G folks, So. I'll soon be a new gun owner: yeah, one of 'those'! I'll have 2 setups: one for the range, and the other when the hg is stored at home, for HD. It's a 'clean' 1911, with no rail -- which is something I wanted vs purchasing a TRP. Though to be totally honest, I was eying a FNX at first, but it's not on the CA shitster, so I went for a DW instead, 'cause I can! I don't want a laser, because I'm not the Terminator, not in law enforcement and not doing competitions (I assume all of them use lasers). However, I want a light for HD. So I bought one of those CC3's on Deadzon (I hate Amazon, s.o.r.r.y) and now I'm shopping for a gunlight. I'm reading reviews (I dig that) on various websites, but since I have my account on G&G, I thought I'd ask you guys (and gals). So here are my 2 dilemmas: Call me stupid. I watched Bosch yesterday and him and the LAPD (in the tv series) use detached flashlights only. Now Bosch is using a 1911 Kimber, while the other guy is using a Glock I believe... anyhow: what's better practically speaking? attached or detached? I want something that blinds the invader. While I like reading reviews, I somewhat dislike that all of them redirect to the Deadzon and that most are made in the f*****g PRC. I don't mind the reviewers doing that, but I wonder if all the reviews do cover everything I should know about. +, I'd like to buy something made in the US, like the g.u.n. I just bought. In these days and age, the best way to fight the good fight is to buy local, true local, impo. Looking forward to reading your input and opinions!
