    The SureFire E2e! Awesome!

    For concealed carry: Surefire L4 LumaMax or E2E. I've carried and used both. The L4 is rated at 100 lumens for 2.5 hours (one hour at high output plus 1.5 at lower output), but is correspondingly more expensive (I paid $132.95). The E2E ($74.95) is only slightly smaller, but also only puts out 60 lumens for 1.25 hours. I tested both simultaneously. The L4 seemed MUCH brighter to me, so that's the one I - and my spouse - now carry exclusively. 2 x $133 = ouch!

    I carry and use a Surefire E1L Outdoorsman. Its an LED and isn't up to the 65 lumens that is considered to be the threshold for tactical light level. But its brighter than a 2 D-Cell Maglight and is Surefires second smallest light. A single battery lasts 4 hours.

    I have a Surefire A2 Aviator for general use around the house and I'll be carrying a Surefire 6P when I graduate from the police academy.

    Other than that I'd have to say any lamp from Surefire that you feel fits your pernal needs. There are other brands out there that are said to be very good, but these Surefires have been so good to me and I trust them so much that I won't stray from them. That is unless I get some really bad customer service, which hasn't happened yet.
    Yeah I like Glocks, wanna fight about it!

    For my money Surefire L2 Digital Lumamax is one of the best tactical lights on the market. Thats what I carry, and thats what I reccomend.

    [QUOTE=Bark'n;355095]I carry an original Sure Fire 6P that does not have the tail cap switch. That's how old it is. It has a solid bottom and you rotate the bezel for on and off and to change the batteries (it is waterproof however and not water resistant). 65 lumen lamp and I have a 120 lumen spare lamp I keep in the car in a Sure Fire spares carrier that hold a spare lamp and 6 batteries.[quote/]

    You have the first model of the Surefires, a model 6 or 6 "c" as was called after the 6 P was launched in the market.

    The "c" is for civilian and the "P" for police, of course the P introduced the tactical switch.

    The 6 is smaller than the 6 P, is made out of a solid billet of aluminum drilled from the front (not as a tube as the 6 P).

    The little lights command good money when found in new condition, I sold two of mine (pay $60 in 1988) for $260 each.

    Surefire G2 with 120 lumens. Sheds a little light on things!

    Surefire E2E in my purse, Streamlight Scorpion by the bed.

    I also keep a Streamlight Stylus in my purse, it's handy at gun shows when I want to peek down bores.

    SureFire Aviator A2. It has held up real well. I have sent it to the factory once for repairs to the tailcap. That was after my grandaughter used it as a hammer, no cost. I may get something else if it breaks again.
