Rail mount or Grip, Crimson Trace laser

I have a chance to pick up Crimson Trace Green laser, for a great price.
I am torn between which to get though. If I get the rail mount, I realize I am limiting my holster option. On the other hand since the laser is for a Glock 19 3rd
gen, I am wondering about the grip fit and any angle changes.
I had been thinking of getting and after market item, called Grip Force, which allows the user to get a higher grip, and being recommended by Ken Hackathorn helps too. Again on the other hand the rail mount would allow the use of a combo laser and flashlight unit. That's my dilemma, which would you go with and why. Thanks, Jimmy

To me, it's not as much a matter of holster limitations or grip as it is that several of the grip lasers I've tried get blocked by my trigger finger when I'm simply indexing. As such, it defeats the purpose of the laser. If not for that, it would probably be my preference, since there usually isn't any movement outside the ordinary to activate it.

I have the Rail Master on a XD 40 sc, I wish at times I had gotten the green, But the red works for me. I prefer the rail over the grip, reason my buddy has the grip unless its off it comes on auto when you grip the weapon where I can either turn it on or off very easy from a natural position. As far as holsters I have a Remora it fits in fine, I had a real nice leather holster made for it and it conceals easy and is very comfortable. But what works for me may not work for you. If I change guns I keep the rail if the other gun has a rail Im good to go. Where grips you cant do that.

That's a good point about switching guns easily.

I too prefer railed accessories over the grip variety. I can get very picky about how I like my grips on carry weapons and the lasergrips too often mess up what I like. Also the railed options can be switched to another firearm easily as they are more universal than brand or model specific laser grips. Sure you will have to get a special holster made for it but there are plenty of them around now. It isn't the Terminator days trying to find a holster for an AMT Longslide with laser sighting.
