Hi all, need some help on lights. I carry a gun and knife whenever possible but would like to add an EDC light as part of my standard carry gear.
I've been looking at the surefires, pelicans, and some other models but you can probably help me cut down the search, so here's some criteria:
1. Under $100
2. Bright enought to use in an SD scenario
3. Tailcap on/off to hold when presenting a gun
4. A clip of some sort
5. Small enought to slip in a pocket and carry out on the town, etc.
I looked at a Fenix P2D (I think?) that was only $40 or less and seemed reasonable putting out 80+ lumen but I don't know how many lumen's actually impresses a bad guy?
I've also noticed some lights are SUPER bright and last a short time while others are less bright w/longer run times. For general EDC, what would you recommend for lumen?
I've looked at the Surefire Executive defender model and like it but it's $110 and I think it would be a bit big to carry around in the pocket.
Any thoughts or recommendations on what you've settled on as EDC as part of your CCW daily carry would be greatly appreciated! Once I figure out a small pocket carry EDC light, I'll start thinking about a good pack/bag/nightstand light.
Thanks in advance for your time and help guys!
