    Surefire Flashlights

    I have 4 Surefires: 2 Z-2's an "Outdoorsman" and a Surefire system on my 590A1. I highly endorse the product line - a little pricey - but very bright and very reliable. Depending on your usage I would recommend you consider the LED version as an option. You sacrifice some of the brightness but gain on battery life.
    The G2 in LED is about $65. But you can get the regular G2 for under $40.

    I have four surefire and 2 streamlight lights, all of which are about the same size. I like all of them, and carry at least one of them every time I ride the ambulance...

    I have the aluminum version of the G2, the 6P, and love it to death. It rode my hip for over 2 years before I put a streamlight light there on my belt (just to mix things up a bit!)

    You won't be disappointed.!

    I used to have a G2 and really liked it. I sold it becuase I didn't have a use for it anymore. Now I have the G2L on the way. I would stay away from the P60 lamp assembly. My personal experince and shown me that they are very frail and can't take getting knocked around. I have had 3 different P60 LA's get messed up. Others on the other hand have had absolutely no problems. Maybe I'm just harder on my lights.

    I prefer the Streamlight Scorpion over the G2, but they are fine flashlights. I normally see them go for under $35.

    Buy the standard G2 and then go to this web site and buy the 3 W CREE LED conversion unit. Puts out about 120 lumens and runs for over 2 hours, costs $11.95.

    I bought 2 conversions, one for my 6P and one for my G2. They're very bright and being LED very rugged. Life spans run around 100,000 hours. I won't go back to bulbs!!!!!!

    Thanks will have to order me one.

    But now for the rundown of performance Took the light out on duty with me and it performed flawless. It totally eliminated the need for my big mag light I carry in my mob bag. The light was bright enough to blind a susp momentarily so that he could be taken into custody. The light works great it has a momentary switch or with just a twist of the rear knob it has a continous light stream. I highly reccomend surefire products to any person LEO or not. It is very rugged but we will see how it does in heat as my duty belt stays in my car so i will let you guys know any futher.
