Does this one have the momentarily click on button on the end of it?I have a brinkman that uses 2 cr123 batteries and is pretty bright,is this one as bright?I am looking for a new small carry light that can be carried in a shirt pocket.I am a security guard that works in a trucking company yard and need a light bright enough to look in a 53 foot long trailer at night.Thanks a lot. sj

Not Sure Of The G2...But My SureFire E2e...
uses 2 of the 3v (sf123)...and it WILL light the backend of an enclosed trailer...I love mine!
The battery life seem to go on forever and I use it quite a bit...supossed to be about 90 continous minutes?...I've been carrying around a couple extra batteries for what seems like a long time...still tickin' though...and it does have the momentary 'click' or twist to stay on...

As Ret says, it has the momentarily on/off, or the twist on for continuos use. Normal bulb is like 60-65 lumens for 60 minutes, or a replacement can be ahd thats 120 for 20 minutes. The normal one is plenty bright for me, haven't tried it in a semi- trailer, but i assume it would work. I found one for a little over 30 bucks too, one heckuva deal.

Train and train hard, you might not get a second chance to make a first impression!

The G2 is a great light, but you will have to get a small holder to put on your belt and you have to twist the bottom for it to stay on. The E2E has a clip attachment and click on-off button on the bottom.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

G2 is a fine light at a good price point. I keep one in the truck.

I have 2 G2's and a 6P on order (to replace my "stolen" 6P) BUT...If you really wanna light up that trailer - go for the SureFire G3! I got one about a month ago, and I gotta tell ya...besides my EDC light (SureFire E2e), the G3 is my favorite! It's just STUPID bright, man! It's my duty light that's always on my belt (along with the E2e clipped inside my left front pocket). I paid $50 for mine - worth every penny!
My buddy John at www.lighthound.com will hook you up!

I just got a 6p brand new out of the door for $35.00 and it is a hell of a flashlight. I don't think you can go wrong with any Surefire.

So the bulb will only last 60 minutes? Are they expensive to replace? I'm new to this high tech flash light stuff. I'm still using my Boy Scout light.

No, the batteries will only last 60 minutes. I have a G2 with a 120-lumen bulb attached to the end of my Mossy Persuader. I also have numerous Brinkmans stored around the house and in my cars. Both are excellent flashlights and the only reason I have the G2 on my tactical shotgun is that I feel the metal casing is a bit more sturdy and that I found the 120-lumen bulb for about $20 at a gun show. It is just a bit brighter than the Brinkman...

thanks for clarifying that

Run time is 60 minutes on new batteries, not bulb life. The e2 as suggested is nice...I have one. A little smaller but just as nice is the
e1. Look at ebay for the best prices. I have found you can usually go up a model for the same price as retail one model below. Surefire will not disappoint if you are willing to spend a little money.

I carry an E2D (E2E with a 'strike bezel') as my EDC, it goes with me everywhere but in the shower (but it could given that its waterproof!). Milspec aluminum coating; it's landed on the floor more than once during a 'forcible ejection' at work, and there's no scratches anywhere.
It has an advertised burn time of 75 minutes. Now, while that may sound like a short time, in reality I was clicking the thing on and off the whole first week I had it, the first two batteries lasted two weeks of habitual playing with it.
Surefire makes a great light for the money, no question.
