    Just bought a new light

    I just picked up a new flashlight that I like, but wanted to know what you all thought of it. I got a Coleman LED from Walmart for about 18 bucks. It looks a little tactical with an impact bezel and it is rated for 75 lumens and runs on 3 AAAs which is a plus for me. It throws the light as far as my 2cell Maglite. I like it. Do you all think that it would be adequate? I was looking for one to carry to use for every day that would still be good in a defensive situation. Thanks.

    It sounds pretty decent. I carry a 60lumen light, and it is blinding at dark. I'm sure yours will do just fine.

    If it tosses a decent amount of light and is well made, good enough for me.

    For the price it is not bad. Consider it a Saturday Night Special light. I would never put it through any rough treatment, but it would make a nice utility light.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.
