    This should be on an "idiot TSA" forum, but only you guys would understand about what an SC1 is. I was at the Detroit airport going through security. Going through the X-ray, the operator gets all excited about my suitcase, running it back & forth, and calling assitance over. My suitcase...

    I have a Gander Mountain $100 gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket. I went there today to buy a Surefire M6. The only M6's they had are the older style bezel. They didn't have any new bezel styles in stock. So, I did not buy one today. Is there anyone that prefers the old style over...

    A dark alley & my Surefire, True Story

    Wow, look at all the responses I drew.... I didn't expect to be so controversial. First, in daylight, you have no idea weather a side street will be well lit or not at night. So I didn't realize it would be dark until I was basically there. I had the light on almost the the whole time...

    A dark alley & my Surefire, True Story

    I took my wife to a Detroit Tigers game last week. We parked in a spot about 3 blocks away from the stadium. We left at the 7th inning, when the game was surely going to the Tiger's way. Walking out pretty much alone, the entire path to the car was NOT lit up, and almost pitch black. We are...

    Titanium Inova X0

    I have an X0 I bought just today. I plan on testing it out this weekend. With the recessed LED's it seems a very rugged type light. It will likely be a brief case carry light for me.

    My dumb Tigerlight question

    After 24 hours of charging, just push the light back about 1/2" in the charger until the light turns off. That way it's still the cradle, but off the charger. I always know where it is.

    The 9P is back in production? I see them New.

    There is a Gander Mountain that just opened in my area (Novi, MI). They have what I will describe as 2 "significant and outstanding" dedicated display TOWERS with all SF lights, filters, and assecories shown inside. I would say they have MOST of the surefire lineup dispalyed. What caught my...
