Does anyone make a decent tactical-type hand-held flashlight for under $50? I would love a SureFire but can’t afford one. Thanks… Gary O <><

First, this has got to be the wrong forum for this. Second the Surefire G2 Goes for $33-$39 dollars at most big chain stores and internet/gunshow dealers.

So get a surefire.

While it may be the wrong forum and all...

You can get a Surefire G2 for $30-35, and a 6P for $50ish.

I've pocket carried one of these every day for the past few months and really like it:

It's LED (3W Luxeon) and so kinder to batteries, should never have to replace a bulb in normal use, has two brightness levels, first click is 'low beam and second is 'high beam.' It's plenty bright for me. Full review for this is at http://www.flashlightreviews.com/reviews/nuwai_tm301x3.htm .

Lots of good lights out there. SF G2, or a 6P are in your budget. Myself I carry a Streamlight TL-2 daily.

Another to check out if you're really on a budget is the Brinkman Maxfire. They use SF compatible bulbs from what I hear, and they're like $20 w/ batteries at Walmart.

Sam's club sells a 2-pack of LED flashlights for about $25, I think the brand is called "Element". They are about surefire size and pretty bright (35 lumens). They run on 3 AAA batteries, and they are made of metal, not plastic.

They are my wife and my "carry" lights now.
