    Default Surefire true story winner

    i won the true story contest for the month of February 2011, which resulted in a $300 gift certificate, so tell me cpfers how would you spend the money? You cant go over the aforementioned $300 dollars

    personally i think ill go with the e2dl, an fo4 diffuser, a case of 12 sure fire batteries, a spare battery carrier, and a cap

    Hey congrats!!

    I'd get one of the 6PX models or a Z2X, batteries, a tailcap, and if you're an AR guy, a high-cap mag (60rd).

    Can we get a link to your story?

    Congrats. You did a good thing. I'm suprised however that they did not choose the story from the woman who was car jacked and placed in the trunk of her own car. The only thing that saved her was the flashlight. Perhaps they fact checked the story? Did they fact check yours?

    Great story. I would get a new LX2 lumamax, and spend the rest on a stockpile of batteries.

    Congrats!

    Something ridiculous for this occasion. Someone around here (must have been pjandyho) has a pic of their T1A next to an M6LT that makes you really want both for no good reason. I say M6LT if you can supplement the GC, otherwise a T1A & batteries as NPB suggested. (edit)Actually the photo I was thinking of featured an M6, not the LED version. Either way, just having those three hundred SureFire-dollars would end up costing me at least as many real money dollars, because I'd use them to justify splurging on something I don't need, looking filth like this:
