Okay so I'm going to pick up my USP tactical pretty directly.. Im thinking a TLR-1HL and i was curious.. is there a pressure switch that works on the USP for the TLR-1HL?
The only pressure switches I've seen are for AR style guns. They also sell a glock pressure switch that runs under the trigger guard. But other than those I personally haven't seen one.Okay so I'm going to pick up my USP tactical pretty directly..

EXCELLENT ANSWER by LCSO! Also PHUAM re: MFR bragging rights and Jsib is correct about splashback or reflected light.....i.m.h.o.I've not used any of the Streamlight options, but I know guys who do, and have had no problems with them. I have had issues with other Streamlight light products, but that was a very long time ago.
Personally, I prefer Surefire followed by Viridian (specifically the gen 2 or 3 Viridian X5L). I like the Viridian because it puts out an adequate amount of light for a fighting handgun, also has a laser, all in a compact size. I recently saw on their website they addressed and corrected the one issue I ever had with the X5L, thus my reference to a gen 3 model. Also, since the Viridian X5L is so compact, it will fit (mounted) in just about any holster made for either Surfire or Streamlight offerins.
I like the Surefire X300 and it's various model upgrades (X300U for example) due to it's rugged construction and high light output. I do not care for the X400 line, even though I like having the laser option (for various applications), I do not care for the way Surefire simply hung the laser below the light, making for too large of an overall package, as well as limiting holster options. I use the X300U on my rifle, mounted at about 1:30-2:00. I know Surefire has a new compact light/laser combo coming to market at some point (I forget the model number). However, the reviews have been mixed on the predecessor, their compact light only unit (again, I forget the model number).
