    ive always carried a small cheap pocket flashlight but after reading the previous posts i think i should up-grade to something better. what i want is something small that can fit in a pocket as i rarely wear a belt. so anybody have any suggestions?

    The only draw back I see to the streamlights is those damn CR123 batteries.

    I picked up a Rocky no name flashlight at Sam's the other day 130 lumens and 19 bucks for 2 of them and they run on rechargeable batteries

    NEBO CSI EDGE 35 LUMEN TACTICAL POCKET FLASHLIGHT #5519 - eBay (item 290516811239 end time Feb-26-11 15:21:06 PST)
    As Tackleberry said, the NEBO CSI Edge is a bright light for the price. I've kept one in my weak side pants pocket for about a year now. I found it at a uniform shop in Bakersfield for $9.95. The battery that came with it lasted about 4 months. NEBO also makes the CSI Quatro in 75 Lumens, adjustable and has a strobe. Tactical face edge and a real winner at $29.95.

    When I go outside at night to see what the dogs are barking about I want to actually be able to see at range what the dogs are barking about and not have to carry my several million candle power spot..... N this tiny thing will still throw a nice spot at 300 yards....

    Pluses...
    AA batteries are way cheaper than 123's
    strobe function
    Low Med N high light setting gives you a very long battery life if needed....

    I own several 600+ Lumens tactical flashlights, but find I leave them home a lot, along with the Glock 23.
    Somehow my Streamlight Stylus Pro manages to sneak aboard as does my S&W 642 whenever I go out. Sneaky little devils! I guess it is because I never did encounter MS13 in the Walmart parking lot or find a need to light up a battlefield!

    I'm very impressed with the stream light strion that several of my coworkers have.

    On duty I carry a surefire 6p led defender on my belt and carry a stream light led stinger when I'm going to need it. When I CC I generally have a minimag but that's going to change soon as it takes too long to get it into play, but it can double as a kubaton. So I guess to each their own.

    I carry a Fenix LD10 in a holster in front of my holstered EDC gun on the right hip. I also carry a Coleman cheapo in my pocket for backup. Two flashlights equal one.

    "it is better to have a gun and never need it, than to need a gun and not have it"
    so along that line of reasoning if we were expecting a fight...
    A. we would avoid the area
    B. we would carry a lot more fire power

    We do not arm for or plan on battle but it is far better to be prepared for that contingency if necessary.... 20 20 hind sight is great if you survive to give it thought....

    ive spent way too much money on flashlights. i have a streamlight ultra stinger 275 lum, a streamlight polystinger led hp 200 lum (high, med, low settings) I carry in my pocket a new streamlight pt2l 180 lum. (high, strobe, low settings) and a tlr-2 on my M&P and a tl-3 in the car. yep quite a collection. I love them all, they all serve their duty well and are very bright lights.
