I have had a TLR-1 mounted on my duty pistol for 10 years now. It's taken a beating and it shows. I recently tried a TLR-1HL and gave it back because it wads foo bright for indoor use. It would almost blind me due to flash back, but they are great outside
Ever spit it out rather than swallow it?
Enjoy it while you can. One day you might be complaining about NOT getting random pop-ups in the morning.
