    I plan to purchase my first gun, a 9mm XDm 4.5", in the near future. It will live in a fingerprint safe next to my bed for bump-in-the-night issues, not as a carry gun.

    I would like to have a light and maybe a laser on it, and I'd be happy to hear suggestions.

    My main ideas were a crimson trace lasergrip and lightguard, or a SureFire of Viridian light and laser combo.

    What are the real advantages or disadvantages to either setup?

    Thanks,
    Schwarf

    I have a 9mm XDm 4.5" myself and have both the CT lasergrips and CT lightguard on it.
    Works well for me and maintains a nice slim profile.

    Is it possible to hold the gun without the light coming on?

    I just picked up a Veridian C5L and its amazing. Super bright light and laser. Didn't add much weight or bulk up the gun that much either :). Went on my 3.8 compact without any issues. Also considered CT but didn't care for the options that were available for the compact.

    i picked up a streamlight tlr-4 light/laser combo for my nightstand xd. its a little cheaper than most of the other options due to the plastic housing but as long as you take care of it, it works great.

    I went with the X5L for my XD40. I wont be carring this one so no need for the ECR or a holster. So I decided to save some $$ and get a refurbished unit from xfighterdefense.com $260 and free shipping. Screws show some wear but everthing else looks new.
