Carry a gun? Carry a light! What flashlight do you EDC?
It's sad, but most of the shooters I run into don't carry a light. After a good reliable pistol and a quality holster, the flashlight is the first thing I recommend to anybody that carries a concealed weapon. Violence occurs quite often at night and in low light conditions, and knowing where you're aiming is incredibly important (anyone else hear the story of the guy who shot somebody breaking into a home only to realize it was his own son?). I also have a good friend with a plate in his ankle because he tripped over a wooden children's table in the backyard of a home he was searching on a security job at night with an insufficient flashlight. He carries a much better light now.
Do you carry a light? If so, what light do you carry?
I recently gave up my E1B in favor of a tougher and brighter light. I'm currently carrying one of these:
So far I love it. There are brighter lights out there, but this one does what I need it to and I don't know of anything tougher.
