    I just picked up 4 of these (as advertised) 40 lumen/4 hrs led lights at Lowes for $2.97 apiece: http://www.lowes.com/pd_472904-50387...Ntt=flashlight
    I played with them some last night and think they are nice little lights (especially so at the price point). I'll probably pick up a few more.

    Regards,
    Greg

    I've been EDCing the Eagtac D25C for the past few months. Close to 400 lumens in an under 3in package.

    Lots of good lights out there. I personally own 2 streamlight stinger rechargables, one of which has been used extensively and is as rugged as hell. I have a little Fenix PD, a jetfire, an old surefire, and my latest, which I carry daily is a Klarus XT11. It is totally blinding at 600 lumens and floods a dark room like nobodys business. http://www.klaruslight.com/plist_show.php?id=2&lge=en

    I tried to carry a Surefire E2D I got at a match, put a LED head on it, very bright, but couldn't find a comfortable way to carry it; felt in the way in a pocket (is that a tac lite or are you glad to see me), clipped on the belt w/mag,flip phone,gun, felt like a duty rig almost. now I just use the Surefire when shooting a no/low light stage; they don't let me out much at night anyway.

    Most places to get down under a buck you have to buy in bulk to some degree. Last bunch I got were 93 cents each but I think I had to order 250 or maybe 500.
    I order them for the department and just add a few for myself to the order. Officers get them as needed, guess they don't figure I probably need em driving this stupid computer.

    I have a very old Surefire 6z that I've carried for many many years. Since I started here so around 16 or 18 years. Keep saying I'll put an LED bulb in it but never get around to it. I carry a spares carrier in my little derelict back pack that holds 6 123 batteries and a spare bulb.
    In my little front derelict bag I have a Fenix PD31. It's a little smaller, but brighter and does all that strobe and dim stuff.
    It sometimes doesn't do what I ask of it, either it will be dim or bright or not strobe or strobe. One of the downfall to having all those options. Handy size and a tough little light. Don't recall what I paid for it, I know even Jocko got one about the same time I did, he's probably due for some batteries. I send him some now and then.
    Spends all his money at Hooters and sheep feed so dont' have loot for batteries. Understandable.

    My favorite is a Fenix E11 (I think it's been replaced by the E12). I forget the cost but it was a Midway special. It's had a rough life --- literally run through the washer and it looks and works brand new. Otherwise I keep a couple Maglite Solitaires around. They are tiny = AAA battery size. The 37 lumen version is available at Walmart for close to $10. Those all slip in a pocket and take up little room.

    For around the house, I have a few Lux Pro 180's. They are 180 lumens and only $15 at Lowes. I've seen them discounted in the checkout aisle displays.
