I just saw a Shot Show clip from the Fenix booth and they showed the new LR40 v2. This one has 15000 Lumens and a new switch design.

Many females don't conceal carry so a bright flashlight MAY BE a deterrent. What about airline travel when traveling to another country where conceal carry isn't allowed? Do some web research and you will find situations and testimonies when a strobe was effective. We aren't saying a strobe takes the place of a weapon but remember weapons aren't always available or allowed.When are firearms allowed in criminal conduct?
People are shining strobes in drivers eyes, I guess that qualifies as a firearms not allowed situation. It's rarely a good idea to shoot a driver.
