The closest thing I have is a mini mag mounted on the B pillar in the truck.



Yep. Belt or pocket. You'd be surpised how nice it it to always have a light with you.

Wallet, phone, Glock 19, extra mag, light and Leatherman walk around with me every day.



Yup, Wallet, iPhone 5, Glock 19, extra mag, Surefire 6PX and my knife. I generally carry a backpack to work which makes it easy for me to also carry my bugout gear and ITS trauma kit. :cheers:
Once lifted 03 Trailblazer on 35's, gave it up to travel the USA with my family.

Yep, I use a light on average 1-2x/day. I wear tactical pants basically every day, so the light goes in the cargo pocket of the LAPG ones, or in the flashlight/mag pocket in the 5.11 pants.

I have a Maglite 3 D Cell mounted to the drivers seat with a led bulb. My daily flashlight is a Klarus RS11 with an integrated charger for USB connections. So recharging is easy even in the car with a USB connector for the cigarette lighter 12V inlet. It has a magnetic connector on the back. I didn´t need a "tactical" flashlight for every day use, charging in the car was my main focus. I carry the flashlight every night when i have to go for toilet.. :D
