Good grief.

I think we all know that it is basically impossible to boycott everything that has Chinese made components.
We can though choose to buy options other than those wholly MIC, by Chinese held companies, whenever possible.
I also choose not to forget the way Covid 19 was allowed to spread, and the threats made to the USA.
Shots across the bow. Keep calm and return fire.

Yes, but only slightly. I believe holster manufacturing companies, definitely BlackPoint Tactical, are making holsters to accommodate this combination as well, for what its worth.

I keep this light mounted on an X-Carry but put together the following configuration for you to see. This is an X-Compact grip and discontinued subcompact slide 3.6" barrel with the TLR-7A.

just wait until black friday or cyber monday or maybe any sale. All the flashlights get a huge discount.

that being said, i run Olight pl mini 2. got it for like $50 on black friday.

I like it because i can attach it and detach it quickly. I dont really run a light on my p320 in holster. i do take my olight pl mini 2 and use it like a normal light when i need it. and if i need it on my gun i just attach it. in my opinion, feels redundant to have a light on my EDC and a light in my pocket.

I'm a big fan of INFORCE brand lights … both the weapons lights and handhelds. I don't want anything that's rechargeable. If I can't reach into my pack, pocket or glovebox and drop in a fresh lithium battery I don't want it. It's kinda hard to recharge a light in the field and it take too much time to get a full charge. The latest lithium 123, AA and AAA really last a long time … all my lights are lithium powered.

Plus the INFORCE lights are moderately priced … I've bought guns that cost less than some of lights out there.

BINGO!

Q: When are flashlights the most useful?
A: At night or during a blackout.

Q: What do you call a rechargeable flashlight during a blackout?
A: A rock!

The O-Light PL Mini 2 is very versatile. Check it out on YouTube.

Or you could just recharge it from a power bank like your phone, etc

Inexpensive Flashlight for 320 Compact?

I choose to carry off body in my Vertx sling bag because I canít stand belly bands and I wear scrubs at work that canít bear the weight of a holster. That allows me to use a portable power pack to keep the Olight PL Mini 2 charged up and the magnetic connector just drops down into the bag when I draw from my modified Tuxton holster.

Yes, drawing from a bag adds a split second to my draw although with practice you get pretty proficient at it plus it has the massive benefit of an armored panel covering my high thoracic cavity in the unfortunate event of a deadly force encounter.

If you're not in a huge hurry, OLight has a flash sale coming up next week (28th) on the PL-2 Mini in gunmetal gray for $66.47.

I use the Olight PL Mini Valkyrie on my 320 or whatever pistol Iíll have out for HD. Bought it 2 years ago no issues.
The charge will last a long time in standby.

Inexpensive Flashlight for 320 Compact?

Viridian doesnít get much love here, but I like them. Have 2. Very compact and some models have your choice of green or red lasers also.
I am talking on C5L models I have.
They have new version so older models are like $80 now for light only. Both crossbred and Theis holsters support it
Also the magnetic auto activate is awesome.
