    What Tactical Light do you carry?

    I have decided that I need to invest in a good Tactical Light for Concealed Carry. When considering, quality, size, brightness and ease of carry, what would you recommend? Thanks!

    Out of the 6 SureFires I own, the SureFire E2e - Executive Elite is, IMO, the hands down best one of the bunch! It's the first thing I grab in the morning - it's the last thing I put down at night. It is every bit as bright as the 6P/G2 series (with just a LITTLE less throw), it is pocket sized (about the size of a roll of pennies), has a neat little pocket clip (like the folding knife you should ALSO be carrying), has the HA-III finish that is tuff as nails and IT'S A SUREFIRE!

    The SureFire E2e! Awesome!

    I personally like the SF E2D simply because it is a weapon by itself and I can get it onto a plane.

    I also like the G2Z as it is a shooting oriented light and gives you the same capabilities that the Z2 does, but is cheaper.

    Fenix P3D-CE as soon as it gets here. Until then, a Brinkmann Maxfire (basically, a $16 polymer light, ala Surefire G2).

    Hope you will write a review of the Fenix P3D-CE. I wonder if it really does produce 160 lumens, and how handy that switch is.

    I plan to. It won't be scientific, as I have no means to measure light output other than going outside and pointing it at stuff - but hey, that makes for good pictures too!

    Surefire G2 price is hard to beat. The G2Z has more versatility, and the price is nice as well.

    Either a Surefire 6P or G2.

    Can someone define for me what a "Tactical Light" is compared to a regular "Non-Tactical Light?"
