Default Light Mounted On My XD?

Thinking about a mounted light for my full sized Springfield XD Tactical 45acp & just retire it to use it for my "bedside" weapon-
Need some exsperienced options/opinions?
Looking at a Streamlight TLR-3 LED for about $85 shipped- Know the name but thats it--- Also 1's & 2's - Worth the price difference?

This is my compact .45 same dark earth as your full size... oorah. This is an NC Star Green Dot laser. swap it between my glock and xd... fully adjustable and doesn't "shoot loose" or anything. so bright that with all the lights off, when walking through your house you don't even need to turn the lights on, it's that bright. nice tight dot. 50 bucks shipped no problem. got mine off of ebay.

I hate to say this but I have a glock light on my xdm 40 and it fits well and works great. My brother had it in his safe not being used because he has one on his glock with the laser and light combo now.

Well, I ordered this NCStar - Its a green laser/light combo-
Only $60 shipped so thought i'd give'er a shot - Doubt i'll ever use the laser (cept to play with course) but read a lot of good reviews on it- Be a start anyways
