OK guys weve all seen em. Surefire X200, Streamlight M3, Insight technologies...my question is what your take on these lights? Im asking because yesterday i picked up a new weaponlight that Streamlight just released for the 2006 year. It looks like an improved version of their M3 and M6 lights. The model is the TLR-1 and its an anodized-aluminum light like the Surefire x200 is, w/ Luxeon LED that puts out 80 Lumens for over 2 hours. has anybody else seen these in person yet? just to be retarded in the shop i pointed the light at my eyes at arms length and flipped it on. I was blind for about several seconds. typical retinal burn stuff goin on. so i was really impressed. i bought it cuz it seems like the light in itself could be a less-than-lethal weapon for blinding a bad guy. what do u think? so yea, sorry im rambling but this thing got me wondering if maybe a tactical light makes SOME sense and its not just senseless mall ninja gear. p.s. i took a pic of the lights brightness in direct view w/ my camera. If anybody is curious ill have my buddy mike post the pic here for ya. all i can say is my cam was freaking out trying to auto-level the brightness cuz it was just so damn overpowering lol.
