Surprised we don't have a dedicated flashlight thread. We do now.

Just picked up a new Fenix at REI. This is pretty nifty for a sub $60 light. Small enough for dress pants pocket and 300 lumen when full strength.
The magnetic chargers is pretty cool too...takes a regular AA if power source not available to recharge.

Off safe. One away.

I have a couple of older model SureFires, and a couple smaller flashlights that are easier to carry in a pants pocket. I think flashlights are a somewhat underappreciated part of home defense kits and bug out bags.

I have a big ass Maglite in Gen 2 ACU pattern that throws a pretty good concentrated beam a fair distance. I can't put it in my pants...but I could conk somebody over the head with it.

Ask Maria, she will tell you. I am a nut for flashlights. And knives, and guns but I digress. Love my O-light M1X striker for my EDC. About the side of the Fenix mentioned, 1000 lumens, sears the retinas great. Comes with strobe and low, you can disable that. Strike bezel to smoke fuckers in the face if necessary. Carry in my back pocket, no worries. I have a few Surefires but, IMHO, they are over priced when Streamlight makes great lights, have a few of those also. My CCW gun, I use a Steamlight TLR1. Work I use the Surefire combat light, that one with the rubber ring in the middle.
