1 light, for 3 guns

Would like to get a quality light that I can switch between a pistol, shotgun and carbine.

Suggestions?

I like the Streamlight TLR-1, but want to compare to other options as well.

I light, seven guns

You're not going to like me.

I pick up a light with one hand and a gun with the other. Then the gun doesn't become a target until it's fired.

Of course.

Hard to do with a rifle or shotgun no? And with them, you dont' have to aim at what you're illuminated, just near it (low) to put enough light on them.

Looking for lights, not techniques, but I get what you're saying.
