    $39 CREE Flashlight Combo Package from Gun Shack

    For the first time ever, Gun Shack has put together a special package deal for Black Friday! This flashlight package consists of our flagship G2 flashlight along with our new and popular XG1 and K1 CREE flashlights.

After turning the light off for 1 second, it will revert back to high the next time it is turned on, regardless what the previous mode was. The flashlight is constructed of anodized 6063-T6 Aircraft Aluminum and features o-ring seals on all parts for optimum weather resistance. The new design maintains the same ultra bright light output on high but now offers the flexibility of a true low output setting suitable for close up work.

    Superb post, great analysis of features.

    Only thing is, that below 200 lumens actual output, you just have an ordinary flashlight, it's not tactical (IMO).

    In addition all the 'features' like 'strobing and settings' is only confusing in a tactical situation.

    You want a light that is simple, one feature, maybe a low light also, the length of your palm (sideways), butt cap switch, light enough to carry in a shirt pocket and that's really it. Having a bunch of 90 to 120 lights is nice for kids or for finding your keyhole, but I don't carry for that reason.

    I bought two of the G2 lights this time last year. One for me, one for my brother.

    They both have held up fine, no reliability issues.

    Being able to use AAs or cr123s is nice, but to me the light is too short with a cr123. I like having high and low output, strobe just doesn't have any real uses for me.

    The only gripe I have is for the light to turn on at all you have to push the button all the way until it clicks AND then let go of it. The light doesn't come on as soon as you apply pressure so you can't easily use it "momentarily." You would have to click it on, click it off. This would be a great flashlight if that was changed.


    I disagree that you have to have 200 lumens to be effective for defensive use. People have been using the 60ish lumen older Surefires for years. I still have an older 6P led that I still use as well.
