    A tiny Foursevens Mini Mk II ( Foursevens.com )

    or a Shining Beam C-mini Cree XP-G R5 Out of production. The owner of Shining Beam is now owner or upper management of Foursevens.

    Be aware a lot of sellers and some manufacturers greatly inflate lumens numbers.

    Lots of information at candlepowerforums.com

    No, it's plenty bright. I can spotlight coons in trees 50 yards out clear enough to get a clean shot. I know some light brighter lights, but this one is plenty bright.
    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    I really like these O-light baton flashlights.

    $40-$60 range - and one heck of a bright light in a tiny lightweight package. These are very well made IMO. They have a magnet, a clip, multiple brightness settings and the highest is blinding, strobe - lots of features.

    90% of the time I EDC a Fenix PD32, the other 10% a SureFire Lumamax.

    I use the Lumamax for Low-Light stages & classes as I find it easier to work HH light6 techniques with a slightly larger light. The PD32 is about the minimum size I can shoot comfortably with using; Harries, Roger's Surefire, or Graham methods.

    I also have some older SureFire 6Ps and Z2 Combat lights that have been converted to LED. All of my weapon lights (5) are SureFires.

    Yes sir I do, the G2X Pro. They spoiled me, I rarely use the G2X single output anymore, basically regulated to the nightstand and wife's purse now. The E2D Led Defender was a gift, not something I would have bought for myself, the "Strike Bezel" makes for uncomfortable carry in a magazine/light holster.

    I rotate between these 3.

    From left to right:
    Surefire G2X (tactical model with momentary only tailcap)
    Streamlight Protac 1L-1AA
    Streamlight Protac 1L

    All with some sort of o-ring loop to aid in retention if forced to do something requiring two hands.

    Is the g2x pro pocketable or a little to big? Googled some pictures of it and it looks to go almost from wrist to second knuckle on middle finger.

    Surefires are all I carry, as well.

    That's the size I have been carrying all the time for the past several years.

    Zebralight52AA. Love the capability and the best part about it is that it runs on a single AA

    5 1/4" long, you could carry in pocket, I just prefer mag/light pouches.
