As suggested by Ben, time to stop derailing the ammo storage thread ;)

What pistol lights are there out there for reasonable prices? Anyone ever hear of AIM Sports? They have a 150 lumen aluminium body rail LED light that I can buy for $40 delivered - pretty good, if it's not an airsoft toy.

My first instinct would be try a streamlight trl model.

the only 2 makes I recommend are surefire or the streamlight tlr series..... especially the tlr-1HL.... that thing will give you a seizure in strobe mode.

I've heard good things about InForce, but it looks bulky to me.

I love the streamlight trl-s on my XD9, I can bring them in if anyone is interested.

I don't see them on your site, but if you could post some pricing I'm sure we can make a deal, I'd rather support you guys and your great service than an out of country Ebay seller any day.

I don't stock them that's why they aren't on the site. When I M back in the office later today I will check on pricing

Hmm, I do actually like the look of it, and more specifically, the price.

Sounds good to me, I'm rarely in a rush.

i- Surefire x300 (not the Ultra's): 110-170 lumens.
ii- TLR-1 and variants of : 300 lumens (getting high up there in output), model with strobe.
iii- Inforce APL: 200 lumens. Really cool little piece of kit.

The Surefire and TLR are rocker-switch so if you have smaller hands (and a short index trigger finger) that might not work well for you.

The Inforce has paddles, so might be easier to work with, again all depending on your reach.

But you can always train to use your weak hand to rock the switch, no pun intented.

OK here are prices to bring them in: I understand they can be found much cheaper in the US and there are a few places in Canada one might find them cheaper (however bear in mind that would be current stock dealers are holding, to bring these in now I am being hammered by exchange rate and higher 2014 product cost)

TLR-1: $215
TLR-1s HP: $320
TLR-3: $150
TLR-4 (currently no stock): $240

Free shipping, add GST.

I love my inforce unit. Fits flush, activates easy, nice wide beam of light without a serious hot-spot.

Uhh...
You can say I am a little partial to the Surefire line-up. Even more so once I got the Ultra...

You could say a little more $$$ than a pistol light.
