    I lost the maglight that I kept on my nightstand. I'm a believer in having a light handy for when things go bump in the night. That said I've decided that the only logical thing to do is retire my 686+ and buy a new gun that I can put a light on. I am an addict after all. Being in Komifornia these are my two options. I could technically get a GI 2 in .50GI but i dont really want to add a new caliber. PC9105LCA.jpg PX9110MLP_1.jpg

    Railed Sig Sauer 1911 fits the bill here in CA

    Sig P226 with rail. Nice double action trigger so you don't pop one off an accident at home and then really nice trigger target after the first round.

    Of the two listed, Loaded Half rail would be my pick. Bomars would not be my choice for a bedside gun.

    Loaded half rail I would say. I would say a Glock but 10 round mags kinda kills that IMO .

    Les Baer Recon 1911
    Springfield Pro railed,
    Dan Wesson Specialist - commander or govt in 45

    M9A1 - those are a cool budget option if not gunning for a sweet 1911

    Sig 1911 TacOps. Night sights, railed. Very smooth shooting. Accurate.

    ^^^This^^^ I totally get the glock argument but none of the single stack glocks are legal here and a double stack with a 10round mag sucks. The 3 1911's in my first post are the only ones I can get. I guess there's a sig too but I don't want one. Nothing against sig 1911's, I have one that I'll never sell (it's my first ;) ) but I don't want another now. If I end up with the TRP the sights would get changed.

    I’d go with the MC operator. Has everything the TRP has besides magwell, But has fixed sights and it’s cheaper

    If the Dan Wesson specialist is an option that's what I would choose.
    But if it's just between the two I would pick the half rail hands down.

    Specialist is not an option as far as railed 1911s he has them listed pretty much.

    I feel for you brother. I couldn't imagine having a list of guns I'm allowed to own. But I guess it makes decisions a lot easier to narrow down.

    Thank you for the information.
    I had no idea they are so limited.

    To those suggesting a half rail over a full, why is this? I'm considering a railed 1911 for a HD gun down the road and this would be helpful. Thanks!

    Sights and price mostly. But also bull barrel and take down.

    For me I hate adjustable sights.

    I'd rather just get a 10 round Chip Power Mag (or whatever was reliable) instead.
