    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.

    My 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" ?
    We are issued a 5x D-cell Maglite.

    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).

    Thanks for the Love! Before going to the Gladius, I had the Metal Streamlight Stinger, and that was a good light, the Poly is a little nicer because of the plastic casing, doesnt get as cold when holding on to it in the cold weather. Batteries last about 2 years before the rechargable battery stops holding a decent charge.

    Hope the Light does you well!

    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?

    If I recall correctly, I think I read where Ken Goode wrote that Insight actually manufactures the Gladius. They licensed it to sell under their own name as well. So it's not a "clone" but is the Gladius with someone else's name on 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.

    HEY OD,


    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
