    I use a SureFire L4 LumaMax...120 lumens for 2 hours.

    You have a nice light, great gun, but the clip is not my cup of tea...cover that trigger.OMO

    Blackhawk Gladius Maximus

    120 Lumens (but much much brighter than other lights I have that are rated higher)
    Memory Mode, twist lockout cap, strobe and momentary.

    I love it, but if I could change it I'd love to see it with cheaper AA batteries instead of the CR123s and it could be a tad smaller for EDC, but with my current mode of dress it works wonderfully. I also prefer the twist cap significantly over the surefire tap through the button methods.

    I have two different EDC lights that I tend to rotate. A Streamlight Microstream for something easy to carry in my pants or shirt pocket and a Surefire E1B Backup with more Lumens. I want to buy next a Surefire L2D Defender with a strike bezel with 200 lumens.

    I recently bought a Streamlight PT 2AA 110 lumens I like it a lot. It's really thin and with a clip for my pocket it's hard to beat for about 35 bucks

    Hey, that's a pretty good choice! I love my P20C2 MkII.

    But my EDC light is the Quark 123*2 Tactical. It's a little easier to carry in the pocket than the P20C2 (see pic). Plus, on the Quark you can set it so that it comes on immediately (on the first button press) in your mode of choice. On the ET, you need two presses to access the strobe. But on the Quark, it can come on immediately in strobe (or whatever else you choose).

    4 sevens lights

    I went to shot show last year wanting to find the ideal carry light to sell in our small gun store...Boy did I ever!! 4 Sevens make an awesome light!
    I carry the Quark 123^2 tactical for almost a year now, and it is really better than anything I have carried...I forgot I owned a Surefire...
    I feel for the price, nothing is better.

    4 Sevens lights are great lights!! That said, I just got for Christmas a Fenix TK15. 337 lumens high with 2 CR123 batteries. Great "lighter-upper".

    Here are my EDC lights



    I used to carry a light as part of my CCW, but nowadays I carry a flashlight more for convenience, and power outages than anything else. As such, I like something small enough to have in my pocket all the time (all of those pictured are less than 3in), decently long runtimes (the Quark Mini 123 is listed as 150 hrs on low), and reasonable brightness (3 of those pictured are 180 lumens on hi). The ones pictured above are the ones I've settled on, with the E01 & E05 serving as keychain backups to the other 3 primary EDC' (carried one at a time of course). The Fenix I carry more for CCW, the Quark Mini CR2 when I'm looking for the smallest and brightest (only 2in), and the Quark Mini 123 would be the one I'd prefer for long runtimes (although even the CR2 and P1D will run into the 20+hr mark on low). I have 3 old Surfires that I need to upgrade to led, but I'm so content with these, that I wouldn't carry the Surefires anymore even if I did. The Surefires are now HD lights because they have the momentary on/off push buttons.

    I just realized I live about 8 miles from the 4Sevens main office, I might just have to stop by there tomorrow! That 123*2 R5 looks really nice to have, though I'm not sure I can justify the expenditure for my needs.
