    Surefire coming to Walmart?

    Just trying to catch up after some time away and after reading this thread I am not sure what to think about this. From what I remember years back SF went to great lengths to ensure strict control of their pricing from all their dealers. I really do not remember any one dealer that had better...

    Mag Light Discussion

    Gentlemen there is a reason certain threads are usually closed and these certain threads usually share the same topics. These certain threads usually bring out the worst in some members and it appears as if this one may have the same result. I believe in honest discussions and I also believe in...

    You gotta see these Surefires

    I always like unusual lights simply for the collector value. I know these are unusual and maybe even rare however I wonder if they are more valuable. I can imagine some of the SF collectors not having anything like this in their collection. Anyone know how many were actually made?

    Is Surefire discontinuing some flashlights?

    It seems as if Surefire would be in a good situation even if everyone did buy their lights and use different drop ins as they are still moving the original lights out the door. I have noticed that the E1E is getting harder to find at many of my local gun shops and other sources. I still really...

    45 minutes with the cops and my flashlights

    Good story and I am always willing to chat with any civilians I meet on duty who have neat gadgets. By the way Galls has a large selection but higher prices and I have lately used GT Distributors for duty gear. I have worked nights for 13 years and next to my pen my light is probably the most...

    Arc anymore??

    Well it did work out in a way however I am mildly dissapointed. The link to the sale showed the complete camo unit (head and body). It was on sale from 38 dollars to 24 so I jumped on the deal. I ordered what I thought was the complete camo light however upon arrival it was only the camo...

    I remember... "the good old days" of CPF

    I am not sure who currently makes a good cyan light however if I remember correct you can still find some Photon keychain lights in Cyan. That was what was so nice way back then was Arc had an actual Cyan color rather than the greenish color that many thought was cyan. A real cyan color looks...

    Arc anymore??

    Well actually this has worked out as I received an e-mail from Lucy Friday evening. I believe there was simply a delay (or impatience on my part) as she took my order and I have one headed my way shortly. Always did want one of the Camo models and thought they were long gone. She explained...

    I remember... "the good old days" of CPF

    I know many here remember the long fight to have a steady supply of rechargeable 123 size cells available. One of our dealers almost went broke getting this project going. I have always wondered just how much we members actually played in the development or invention of the Li-Ion 16340 cell...

    Arc anymore??

    I have several older AAA versions as well as the LS models however I never did get one of the camo units. I noticed a sale on their remaining stock however if I remember correct they were a limited run and sold out a few years back. If they were sold out I am curious how they have these to offer...

    Arc anymore??

    I have tried to phone Arc using the number on their site and also attempted e-mail with no response. I keep getting voice recording on the phone and would simply like to know if they still have items in stock. Their webpage shows a few things I want and I am thinking of placing another order if...

    latest light for IMR Cells?

    Thanks for the offer Kestrel however both lamps seem to work just fine and I do not believe any modding will be required. I do like this little combo and the lamps are nice and white for incandescent. I also really like the LC1 drop in and now have the ability to switch between incan and LED in...

    LEO'S: How useful is strobe in the "real world"?

    Victory I believe that is a good way to say it when you say not to use strobe on a person who is actively attacking and in a much shorter way I believe you are saying the same thing as myself. For non-aggresive threats it may be of some use or non-compliant is a good way to say it. I very much...

    LEO'S: How useful is strobe in the "real world"?

    The poster asked the question of "real world" and as such my answers will remain along those lines. You may find quotes from any number of experts however I give my answers from first hand experience in the "real world" I fully believe that a high power strobe light is disorienting and as such...

    LEO'S: How useful is strobe in the "real world"?

    As an actual LEO I can tell you that training is the key and as much of it as you can get. For any tool we use in police work we have to be trained and re-trained in order to avoid liability and often times in order to keep our certification valid. It seems that every other week we have to...

    LEO'S: How useful is strobe in the "real world"?

    I have voiced my experiences on this many times and will again say that I feel strobe has no use other than working traffic accidents or as an attention marker. I work with over 900 officers and in 13 years of street work I have never seen any use strobe. I have seen rookie officers who had...

    latest light for IMR Cells?

    I just ordered the single cell lumaforce P60 host as well as the EO-4 lamps. I went ahead and got a few extra R2 drop-ins to play around with also. I would like to have a decent incan drop-in as well as a luxeon to swap around so I am still thinking about the suggestions given here. I also just...

    latest light for IMR Cells?

    I just realized lumens factory still has the EO-4 drop in and found a few at LightHound. Seems like it would work however did not find much on it with a search. Has anyone used the EO-4 in the solarforce L2M single cell host. I did read the EO-4 is a high drain lamp and it sounds good for the...

    I knew I was most likely missing a few options and thanks for the information. I will have to look in to this and thanks again.
