    Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I still have a MagLite on my bedstand. The Wife has a Garrity 1million candle power spot light on her side. You don't need to shoot BGs, you just burn out their retinas.

    I too still have a 3 D cell maglite next to the bed. But only because I haven't been able to bring myself to spend a hundred bucks or so on a surefire.

    6-cell Maglite next to the bed. Surefire forend on the 870 and a 6P next to the pistol.

    I really like the spotlight/burned retina idea, though...

    Streamlight Scorpion. Great light for the money.

    Surefire E2.

    Shotgun wears a Surefire. Think it's a 6P.:confused:

    Three "D" cell Maglite on the floor next to the bed. A PALight on top of the nightstand next to my Glock 27.
    Another PALight on the second shelf of the nightstand right next to a .38 Special.
    Why the Pals? Well, at the lowest setting, they don't go completely off. They're always "on"! After my eyes get used to the dark, this soft glow is where the pistols are! Plus the soft glow is bright enough to read my watch or light my way to the bathroom. The PALs are powered by a single 9V radio battery and have an LED that's good for 100,000 hours. On the lowest setting, the PALs are supposed to glow for two years. On the "medium" setting they're supposed to glow for 200 hours. On the highest setting (which is REALLY bright), they're supposed to glow for 20 hours. They even have a "strobe" feature! 8 hour life-span on that one. The case is unbreakable rubber. I'm impressed! PALs are great for travel. I believe even Doc Welch would have said, "Wow"!

    I have a cheesy 2 C cell flashlight and a mini maglite (2 AA cell) on the nightstand (both soon to be replaced with most likely a Surefire M2 or M3.) Also within reach is a 2 million candlepower spotlight for the retina burning.

    Scorpion.... and a mini-mag... and every once in awhile - a 3,000,000 CP portable hand-held spotlight, if it's not in my truck. I've often wondered what THAT would do if I hit someone right between the eyes with the beam. Ya s'pose it would blow their eyes right out the back of their head? :cool:

    I also have the big Maglite, on the floor next to the bed, but also keep a Surefire on the nightstand next to the handgun.
