Who else is impressed with SureFire?
I've had a SureFire 6P for approx. 5 years. I've carried it with me every day on duty as a backup flashlight. I've been very impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of this flashlight. I recently purchased one for my LEO girlfriend who currently doesn't have a backup flashlight. I bought her the G2 LED as well as the LED conv. for my 6P. Is anyone else here as happy with these lights as I am? I'm curious to know what everyone's opinion is of these products.

i couldn't agree with you more about surefire. i'm surefire fanatic. i used surefire products in Iraq. i didn't spend my tour in the sandbox behind a desk. countless raids, search and attack missions, route clearance and just plain brutal abuse. now that i'm a cop i carry a surefire m-2 with LED conversion. it's cleared numerous rooms and dark corners and shines through the window tint in suspect vehicles. as a back-up i carry a surefire E-1L outdoorsman. i know, i know, i must sound like a commercial. i'll shut up!

I have to be honest Chorst, I too have been very impressed with Surefire - but they are impressed themselves with their products and it reflects in their prices. :(

I would love to add their forend grip to my AR platform, M900A Frontgrip. That said, I can't justify spending close to $500 for a vertical foregrip because of the name on the unit.

I have recently bought a couple of lights from Inova, specifically the Inova T5. These lights are very well built and very bright, plus they aren't anywhere near the price of the Surefire lights.

As the topic was whether or not I was impressed with the Surefire, I am, but I am also looking for a good value that leaves me with the ability to have multiple lights for multiple occassions as opposed to one light to try and make fit into any situation.

Dillinger, I completely understand. I also wish they were less expensive. I used the Surefire forend AR light while attending SWAT school. It was easy to use and 100% reliable, but I had no idea they were that expensive. To be honest, I buy much less expensive LED lights ($15) for use in my trucks, but want only the very best for use at work. I'll look into the Inova lights, b/c I can't afford Surefires for all my flashlight needs.:( Unfortunately!

I am also a fan of Surefire, I have several in my light collection, and I have been a customer since they come out with the first light in the summer of '88.
It was the magnificent Surefire 6 (not the 6P) made out of a block of aluminum (not a tube).

Here is a picture of the first Surefire 6, if anybody have one in great condition, it is worth about $260, today!

I have other lights here, there, everywhere. But for my EDC, I was very impressed by the size, capability, reliability and price. I finally overcame the price when I read so many great reviews with little or no dissent. The E2D LED fits perfectly in my pocket in front of the LCP.
