I’ve got several O-Light lights and I’m pleased with every one. They have some great sales around thanksgiving and Christmas.

Both are good choices. For CC, I'd spend the extra $$ and get a new -3. For keeping at home, the -1 is a good choice too.
I'm guessing you're comparing buying that used TLR-1 to a new TLR-3?

Otherwise, I'm confused because the TLR-1 is more expensive new :)

Oh, I forgot to mention I have the TLR-1 HL. 800 lumens, holy moly that thing is bright.

Check my link up thread for a used tlr-1 for $55. Vs. A new tlr 3 for a bit more.

Sorry, I'm not sure what you meant my a link up thread.... I have the "Olight Bundle PL MINI Valkyrie Rechargeable Flashlight Cree LED 400 Lumen with magnetic usb charger and patch" sitting in my Amazon cart for $79.00... did you have the used TLR listed for less?

Side note... I picked up the Sig PO2022 on Monday.... Meh.... Not super impressed with it so far... Hitting the range today to see how it does... Don't get me wrong, nothing bad to say about Sig, but it just doesn't feel good in my hands.... I may put it back up for sale and find something else that fits better...

LE Trade in TLR-1 for $55. Ambi controls.

You might need to find the correct attachment point if you're mounting on something other than A Glock. See description.
Here's his link, TLR-1, used at $55. ;-)

Late to replying to this. Flashlights, guns, and ammo are things I tend not to go cheap on (OK maybe car tires to). I've had pretty good luck with Streamlight and Surefire. You get what you pay for.

I prefer a handheld light. I carry a Streamlight PloyTac X USB. 600 lumens, 10 tap programable, USB rechargeable. $60 with tax at my local GT Distributors.
