No experience with illuminating devices. Just make sure what you want are rated for the particular caliber of gun you own. I've beat up a picatinny railed laser light and it wasn't happy on a .22LR or a 9mm. Go figure.

Check out the streamlight TLR-4, it's very reliable and decent sizing. It's also a laser/light combo. Optics planet has it for a bit over $100(free shipping) and u can also check it out on Amazon for around the same price.

I just purchased a Streamlight TLR-6 (69291) for my xdm 9, 4.5", for $92 on amazon. Have not shot with it yet, but it's a very nice unit. 3 modes: light only, laser only, light+ laser. Adjustable. Fit perfectly on gun.

I bought a TLR-6 for my new XDM Compact, tiny light/laser that performs with it's bigger brothers. The light is more of a flood than a wide spot with fringe lighting, but for inside a house it's ideal for me. I also have a TLR-4 on my XD 5" and my AR, the main advantages it has over the 6 are longer battery life, easier-to-find batteries, and I like the switching system a bit better. I have medium sized hands (glove size 8 1/2) and arthritis has weakened them - I find the switch on the TLR4 easier to manipulate.

The XD 5" in .357 SIG and TLR4 is my "house gun", I bought the XDM/TLR6 as a carry piece as I've never been really satisfied with the Ruger LC9 it replaces, except that the LC9 is at least a 9mm instead of the .380 it replaced. Some day down the road I plan to buy and XDS and another TLR6, but that won't be soon and who knows what Springfield and Streamlight will be offering by then.

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced tac light for the 3" subcompact XD9?
I just reached the 20k round mark with my XD Mod2 SC and 15k with the TLR-4. Not a single failure with the sidearm or the light. Good battery life. Good lumens.
But I've found that all the major/popular makes and models are fine enough if you're not kicking in doors nightly. The thing I learned the hard way with weapon lights, as with most things concerning the XD platform, are the holster options... or lack thereof.
I've been happy with the TLR-4 and have stuck with it, since it was a gift. I was considering going with the Olight PL Mini next... but the custom kydex holster I found at ReignTactical has kept me happy with my setup.

What did you ending up going with?
