Good idea. Lights on pistols is a wonderful combination. I'm surprised gun manufacturers haven't started trying to incorporate them together. Kind of like the cell phone/digital camera merger.

That would be here

Actually, yes. Because Glocks are so light compared to steel or aluminum frame handguns, you need to keep a firmer grip on it. If you limp-wrist while firing it, the slide will rise up and snatch the case before it clears the ejection port. You'll end up with a stovepipe
. It's not like you have to keep a death grip on it, but you can't shoot with a limp wrist.
Other than that, make sure you get as high a grip as you can with it. The web of your thumb should be jammed up tight to the top of the backstrap. You should be fine.
Congrats on your new Glock!
