It's brighter enough to make a difference.
You're just sticking up for you BFF....If I spend that much it'll be for a green laser or a used reveolvers! LOL!!!!!!!!
Green lasers are super cheap now, IR is where its at
If you can find a good used revolver for $300...buy it!!
4 Cell Maglight with a Malkoff drop-in. Total cost is about $70 right now as the drop-ins are on sale. If you absolutely need one on your belt, get a Stinger for under $120.
$300 for a flashlight is a waste of cash, IMO.
I take an engraving tool to all my gear. Name and badge #. not fool proof, but it helps.
I just picked one of these up a couple days ago. Company is owned by a local PD officer, Can't beat it for $100. BTW I have NOTHING to do with this company...
I had one of the blue line lights and I loved it, but it just stopped working after about 2 months. No rhyme or reason behind it. Disappointing....kind of like the Liotech I used to use, which also stopped working, just like the customer service.
I have broken four or five of the Liotec lights...it got to the point that I was breaking the replacements that he sent me within a week. The contact points on the lighthead themselves were always what broke due to bad solder joints.
I ran one on my rifle that went tits up after 400 rounds; the replacement with an upgraded design didn't last 50. The manufacturers know it's a problem (thus they are changing the design all the time) but they still haven't been able to get it right. I finally got fed up with the Made in China stuff and got a couple Streamlights and I haven't had an issue since then.
Two CR123A batteries every few months is still cheaper than mailing a light back and forth to be able to use a rechargeable.
I have a Streamlight Strion LED on my belt and love it. Probably the best accessory I've purchased. Never had an issue with it.
It is small, but its not my primary light for traffic work. I like my old school magcharger for that. Rugged, bright, can be used as an impact weapon in "weapon of immediate use" situations , and is big enough to tuck under my weak arm to keep both hands free if I have to write anything while at the vehicle.

I'm not LE but holy cow, there are a lot of choices for a flashlight. I own Mags, Pelicans and a Surefire. Surprised the department doesn't underwrite at least part of the cost of a high end flashlight, give how oftern you use them
You related to Hush?
Contact the owner, he totally backs them up.
You must have missed the part about the customer service not working anymore.

It appeared he was referring to Liotech's customer service.
Doug from Blueline will take care of you. I'm done with what's become my commercial for these guys haha. I just dig the light for 100 bucks!
I thought you were talking about Liotec...my bad.
Sorry, in my mind, nothing beats Surefire brightness, durability and quality. I own four surefires and they all have given stellar service. Yes, you pay more, but, like many thing in life, you get what you pay for.
Brite Strike looked pretty good at the show I went to.
That's my drug of choice...and it's an expensive one. Have some good drop in LED upgrades but can't beat SF durability and customer service.
Did you check the Lynn pawn shops yet like i suggested?? thats PAWN...
Sorry guys. I guarantee you I win the brightness wars. The warning on the Malkoff device I have in my 4-Cell Maglight:
And they just came out with a D-Cell drop in a few months ago that's even brighter than that. I also have one of their drop-ins for my Stinger XT.
I maybe replace the batteries in the Mag Light every 4 months, and charge the Stinger once every 6 weeks. I swear by these things. They're the real deal if you want to light up a car with 20% windows at night.
You don't always have to pay $300, I just bought one on line for $50, the only defect was that is has someone else's name and department already inscribed on it, but what a bargain....
If this check bounces...

Like Q5, I am also still rocking the Masscops group buy Liotech. The only issue I have had is that the rechargable battery puked after a couple years.ago and I can't find a replacement. I stock it with Surefire Lithium batteries now nstead.
I carry the Inova T-4 rechargeable LED - it fits Stinger holsters, is pretty light, and is crazy bright. I've dropped it pleanty of times and it's super tough. Batteries have no memory, so you can throw it in the charger whenever.
