Default What flashlight do you carry?

I have a maglite 3d cell that i carry in my truck mounted on back wall near the door. I also just bought terralux pro3 in hi-vis orange. I went with the terralux pro3 because its small, uses 2-AA batteries( Not a special battery) and 280 lumens on high and great battery life, cost effective. $40.00 Most other led in that range cost around $75-$100

I keep a 5.11 tactical light clipped to my brake controller. Always handy at a moments notice. Uses stupid 123 batteries tho, highly expensive and hard to find in some places!

If I remember, I bring either my Surefire G2 or G2X Pro. 123 batteries are too expensive!

An LED Mag light. One of the big ones that can knock someone out. Saved me on more than one dark occasion.

LED SureFire (I swear it's like a million candlepower Q-Beam) & a handy tactical torch (halogen/LED/white/green) - Got'Em!
