I have spent years buying dozens of guns, holsters and everything that all of you have done on quest for the edc lifestyle. I have spent hundreds of hours analyzing all of the various brands and calibers etc. I have concluded that I like the Lc9 more than any other edc carry for a long list of reasons. I own more expensive guns that have incredible qualities but I just keep coming back to my Lc9 for the all around edc for any scenario. Just got the new reactor light. I will let you know if it is a good buy. The lc9 is an incredible pistol for the price and with the new extended magazine (there is also a promag 10 round mag with a spacer) I determined that for the features that are important to me it has more pros than anything else. I am also a S&W owner and backer as well as North American Arms.

Looking forward to getting learning from all of you instead of finding your random posts at 3 in the morning when Im up looking at accessories.

Welcome from NW Iowa! I would also like to hear your thoughts on the reactor light.
The light met my expectations. It is powerful and the strobe effect is significant when you are in a really dark area. The part I like the most is how small it is. It is not like others I have that are heavy and bulky. I think it is probably slightly bigger than my lasermax. However the Laserlyte can be added and then you have both. I have not been able to test it on any of the special holsters on their site except the basic pocket holster that it comes with. I want to get the crossbreed that has the built in ECR but I don't know if it will work with the additional laserlyte or not. Definitely worth it.

Patriotj2003, I would like to know if you ever purchase the Crossbreed from Viridian's sight, I was thinking about doing the exact same thing as you for my LC9S Pro, with the Viridian tactical light and the Laserlyte side mounted laser. I think it will fit the Kydex of the crossbreed, however, it might need to be carefully reheated, where the laser meets the Kydex on the side, and remolded just a bit to accommodate it. I haven't purchased the light and laser yet, but worked up a comp, through the magic of Photoshop, so I could see what it would look like. I'll enclose it, as well as a laser comparison of other models on the LC9.

patriotj2003, please let us know know if you add the Laserlyte Side Mount Laser to your LC9 with the Viridian tactical light. I am thinking of doing the same thing. I worked up a comp using Photoshop so I could see what it would look like, see attached. I also included a comparison of several laser options.
