    I would love to know what torch you get for $27,000 a piece.

    Great thread Dave, it is amazing how poor standard issue flashlights are, if issued at all.

    For that kinda dough, hopefully they were decent lights.

    They would do a lot worse than to issue the Mini-Maglite Pro 272 as the standard-issue torch. Maglite durability is good, the battery chemistry is not a worry, it is a light most UK officers would be familiar with, and at 272 lumens, no slouch either.
