Let's see you mount it on the LCP though.. :)

I'm sure hoping SF comes out with a light/laser combo or something soon..
Even though I have a weapon mounted light on my primary carry, I still carry the pocket flashlight. A weapon light and a carry light serve different purposes. For my choice of weapon light, Procyon, the strobe is especially important.

I am sure that I am wrong but it has always been my perception that a bright light on your weapon is detrimental to the cause. Personally, if I have my "night eyes", the bright light tends to wipe out my sight improvement rather than enhance it......Anyone else have this experience?

I was convinced of its efficacy by the following:

Last night the tail end of hurricane Ike visited our area with gusts over 60 mph. Lots of noise of branches hitting the house for several hours. My little pocket E2D was my companion on my inspection tour before going to bed. Incredible how effective at seeing 30-50 yards from my position as well as inspecting my roof from the ground. If I ever had reservations about what I spent on this light, last night removed them all.

This is what I purchased for my carry light, but now after looking for a link I see they have discontinued it due to LED problems. I have never had an issue with mine. I did the Surefire G2 route but the lifespan of the expensive batteries soon soured me on that.

I have a nOOb question... Why is a strobe on your light important? Sorry, Im new to most of this stuff.

I was thinking of getting a light to mount on my 870 but i have been advised by a few people that its not the best idea. I dont want it to make my shotgun look cool, I want it so I dont accidently send 00Buck into some one I dont want to. BTW, I live in a small ranch home (950) sqft. Suggestions?

I myself have recently researched getting one of these LED high intensity lights, below are some good sources I found, my save you some time looking for sources and help compare prices. Another good source is Ebay, do a search for "900 lumens", then check the sellers store for other intensitys. How about 900+ lumens 8 modes, 3 strobe speeds $41.15 Free shipping and reviews too! (I figure if 80 lumens is good 900 must be GREAT) :)

Ive been carrying the fenix ld01 on my keychain and can hardly notice it. It is small enough to not bother me at all, nearly the same size as a standard key, light enough to where I don't notice it, and still bright enough to do all the jobs I give it.

3 inch length, less than one ounce weight, AMAZING 3 OUTPUT LEVELS: 27 Lumens (3.5hrs) -> 10 Lumens (8.5hrs) -> 80 Lumens (1hrs)

Fenix LD01 LED Flashlight

Pros: Very bright, uses single AAA battery, rugged, waterproof, affordable.
Cons: Finish has some minor scratches.
Price: $41

Reviewers are virtually unanimous in recommending the Fenix LD01 as the best keychain-sized flashlight. The only flashlight that can challenge it in this category is the AAA Arc GS LED.

The Fenix LD01 flashlight runs on a single AAA-sized battery, yet it can produce 80 lumens of light on its highest setting. It uses a Cree Q5 LED as its light source, and the lens is made of toughened, anti-reflective glass (as with all Fenix lights). It has three output modes: 10 lumens, 27 lumens, and 80 lumens.

The Fenix LD01 is also “IPX-8 water proof” which means it is suitable for continuous submersion.
