  • What type of flashlight are you using at work?

    I use any of several led converted maglites from my arsenal.
    Some are well over 300 lumens of dazzling white light!

    I am a long time member at www.candlepowerforums.com and learned a lot about finding or modding flashlights there to make any and all security posts I have ever worked super easy.
    Observe and report what you saw with a good flashlight.

    My agency requires a belt mounted flashlight on an officer's rig, at all times, and in all assignments. We issue one Streamlight Stinger XP (With the tail cap), and one Streamlight XL-20 to patrol officers (Its in the car, they drive the car.)

    I personally use a Streamlight Stinger XP, which I like rather well. I perfer rechargable flashlights over non-rechargable or lithium based ones, because they're just there. I don't have to spend money on batteries.

          Stinger, Surefire, Streamlight, and Mag-Lite for me. The more light the better. Bad guys hate light as much as roaches do!

                      You get a flashlight? Consider yourself lucky depending on who you work for. Rechargables start at 100 bucks for a magcharger (85-130 USD).

                          Agreed.
                          I'm one of the few s/o's in the company I work for to even carry a flashlight.
                          I also have fewer problems at my assigned posts than most of my flashlightless coworkers.
                          Not that a good flashlight is the be all/end all solution to security.
                          It's really not, but it has sure helped me and a few other security offers out a lot.
                          A good flashlight shining on/in and around the building at night sends a clear message that there is someone there to call the cops.

                          As far as that 4D goes, go ahead and snag some rechargeable 7.0 amp hour nicad batteries and a good Vanson speedybox charger for them.
                          www.amondotech.com is one of dozens of good places to find batteries and chargers.

                            I carry a 3 "D" cell mag light on my belt, a disposiable pen light in my EMT holster with my Shears and bandage scissors and when making patrol in the medical van I have a Million CP spotlight which I use to light up the fencelines. That habit has earned me the nickname "Q-Beam".

                              Streamlight 4 'D' Cell 'Excalibre Model'. It's battered and bruised but I've had it for years.

                              Recharageables are the way to go from a long term economical point of view, but wow, don't they cost the $'s?
