New Glock Tactical Light
Me ^ | 11-11-05 | Tom Eaker

Posted on 11/11/2005 5:35:08 PM PST by Eaker

I have mounted a new tactical light to my Glock but I don't really know how to secure it properly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Please look at the pictures and offer better ideas than a rubber band if you have any.

Thanks,
Eaker

You obviously neglected to buy the wheeled tripod option when you purchased the light. ;-}

Tie-wraps. Definately tie-wraps.

I still have a few stainless tie-wraps left over from when we built that deer stand.

Yep, definately tie-wraps.

I usually use super glue.

It's only good for one shot, but then how many do you need?

I don't have the nerve to suggest TWO rubber bands, after what his boss wrote in his Online Journal about his "illness" being psychological, so other than using a carbide miners' lamp, I'm out of ideas.

FReepmail me back if he doesn't go ballistic, and I'll post something too. You first.

We are talking about Eaker here, right?

He empties the magazine at junk mail and you are talking "one shot"?

Since it is going to grossly disrupt the balance of your firearm when re-acquiring your target, and also will signal your location to everybody within 2 miles, the best thing you could do is to hold this light in your left hand while shooting from the right.

It is possible to rig a grip mount for it.
A frame mount would likely be better..

Of course, one can always use my coffee before attempting to make said mount..
Then hours of fun will be had..

I hold the .50BMG in my left hand.

I also use heavy bullets so the balance is not that bad.

Have you ever seen those plastic straps they use to hold flexible A/C duct work in place. It has braids that tighten up as you pull the end of the strap through the opening at one end.

When I did something similar with my Kimber Ultra CDP II, I used two 4-inch diameter stainless steel hose clamps. Holds it real tightly, but I'm having a bit of trouble using my IWB holster...

100 mph duct tape, camo of course. I'm still looking for a tactical rail for my carbide lamps so I can mount them to my 1858 Remington New Model Army clones.

On the other hand here's a real world sit-rep on home defense at o dark thirty.

The News Journal

11/11/2005

A 60-year-old avid sportsman turned the tables on a pair of armed men Thursday by returning their gunfire, killing one of them after they broke into his Roselle home in the middle of the night, police said....

Police said the pair ambushed the man and fired at him sometime after midnight in his dining room at his home near Elsmere....

"The intruders shoot twice and the victim returns fire in the direction of the muzzle fire and flash light and hits both men," Navarro said. "One got out the front door and the other ran out the back door. The victim retreated to his room to call the police.

----------------------

Nice work, two shots, two hits, one goblin removed from the board, and one hurtin'.

After you rig the light on, think about adding a bayonet.

"I hold the .50BMG in my left hand. "
Then the solution from the old joke "and how do you think I was ringing the doorbell?" might be appropriate. Seriously, the best you could do would be to use IR light [these are much smaller] and night vision goggles. The LEOs whose opinions I heard on the subject preferred to keep the light as far to the side from the shooter's body as possible, hence two-hands approach.

I think it will fit in my Galco OWB holster.

People give me a wide berth when I am down to the Wal-Mart 'cause they think I have a growth.

Bonus!!!

That is a really cool project weapon, but mine is for concealed carry. Plus the muzzle break might add too much weight. The spotlight weighs about 10 pounds, so I might not be able to get it on a plane. Sure I can get it onto Southwest, but sometimes I fly other airlines.

The neat thing about speed loaders is that they are a hobby.

Rather than making a quilt or something like that you can practice getting one off of your utility belt and then get the bullets into the revolver.

Takes years!

Good luck and once you get good at it you can show me how to do it when you come to a Texas shoot!

You have really given me some good ideas for concealment options!

An Easter Bunny suit would allow me to carry a basket full of "eggs" and other "stuff".

That is what I am talking about here!!

We are thinking outside of the box!

Way outside!
