Not all flashlights are created equal. Often called tactical flashlights, there are certain factors that we are looking for in trying to find just what we need. In fact, you might have multiple flashlights for different situations. Granted, there are pros and cons to using a flashlight in a self defense situations.
Buy Quality, but you don’t have to spend a lot! Remember the spare batteries...
While there are several great brands of tactical flashlights out there, the two main recommended brands are Streamlight and Surefire.
Streamlights are sleeker and usually a bit more affordable.
Surefires have more aggressive styling and the choice of many of the tactical shooters.
In either case, you will be purchasing a quality product, and we recommend purchasing more than one and keep them in easy to accesses places, including on your person. Like everything else that we recommend, don’t cheap out, because one day your life may be dependent on it.
Depending on the brand and style that you choose, the length of the chassis may vary. Shown is the picture are the Surefire 2L and 1L versions. The 2L has two batteries and is 260 lumens, while the 1L has only one battery and is shorter, with 180 lumens of power.
