Thread: Flashlight question

Surefire L7 for primary. Best flashlight I have ever owned. Maglight 2D with LED upgrade and another surefire for secondary. Maglights are heavy. My L7 is lighter, smaller, and a lot more powerful than my maglight. 100 lumens with great battery life is hard to beat.

The Maglights were great lights in their time but to me the weight of them in comparision to the brightness is the main reason that I stopped carrying mine and switched to Streamlight. I now use the Ultrastinger and strion for duty. I actually have two strions one on my belt and one in the charger so if the belt light goes dead I just switch. I mainly only use the ultrastinger now if I an going to be searching an open area. Ialso carry the Streamlight Stylus in my uniform pocket and have an M6 on my duty weapon.

I got away from MagLights years ago because they seemed more delicate than the SL20. Seems to me I don't have nearly the trouble out of the SL20 that I did with the Mag.*************************"It wouldn't take much for me to up and run...to another life somewhere in the sun."*************************"There's something inherently wrong with having to put on a bullet-proof vest and a gun to go to work."-(An old friend)

01-21-08, 06:21 AM #29My question is what flashlight do you use on duty & also does your dept. have a "use of force"policy regarding flashlights ? Also what lights do you use "off duty" ?
However, nobody carries the massive Maglite. Most deputies buy and use their own. Many different flashlights are purchased and used. Popular ones include the Streamlight SL-20, Surefire models and Streamlight Stinger.
For duty I carry a SL-20 for primary and a Surefire 6p for backup. Off duty I carry my 6p.
Our force policy says our flashlights are the same as any other impact weapon (optionally we still carry saps too).

Q for Baumshoes.
On the Pelican 7060 (been trying to narrow down between Stinger LED and this one and found a lighting form website discussion that for me will favor the Pelican vs the LED Stinger-despite that cool strobe cap) I ant to buy from you guys for the price and as O/R supporters.. but I was wondering does that include a holster for the light too? What do you recommend for it?There are only two kinds of real justice left: street and poetic...
Canada, huh? Almost made it...

I love the Gladius. I recently got the upgraded LED for the Gladius I carry at work. It's a great light, durable, and very effective. Night-Ops will upgrade your Insight light but it voids any Insight Warranty. Night-Ops will still cover what they did for the upgrade.Pleasing nobody, one person at a time.

If I could find one I would carry a bright green maglight but here in the Detroit area they dont come in green.....wonder why??Insert witty comment and disclaimer here.

It comes with a nylon holster, open top and bottom, top of the flash light flares and that holds it in the holster
It is a nice set up, we sold many to the west coast. I had the light in hand and loved it, I went with the Blackhawk gladius because of th strobe but th 7060 was the next on my list because of the quality of light and length of use time
Any q's send me a pm
