    Almost two dozen flashlights to my (mine, not "the family's. Many more there) four guns and four "good" knives. At least 5 of the flashlights cost over $50.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    Guns by a margin of two to one over flashlights.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Flashlights! Oh my goodness the lights in my house. A 4-D cell, 3 3-D cells, 4 or 5 $2 Wally-World cheapies, maybe 8 mini-mags, 2 surefires, and two of the Rayovac 80 lume Wally-World specials. Almost 2 dozen......or did you mean "tactical" lights? Just 4 in that case. Still more lights than handguns.....for now.

    I think I have more guns than I have batteries for my flashlights. They don't have freshness dates like batteries, so I know they will last longer

    I hadn't thought about it so I went and looked.

    Yup, more tactical flashlights than guns!

    It's a tie!

    8 guns (4 handguns, 2 rifles and 2 shotguns).

    8 flashlights (2 handheld LED "tactical" lights, two maglites, two LED "headlamps", and two regular flashlights [kept in my vehicles]).

    Peace,
    Pete Zaria.

    Way more guns, but I do have several Surefires and a Streamlight, and a few led lights for when less light is required. I laso like the led lights because I can still get some life out of my CR123 bats when they won't run the Surefires anymore. I just bought my mom an E2 Defender with that wicked bezel ring, that's a nice light. She about had a fit when she found out what it cost, though.
