Maybe This Will Be The Light...

...since SureFire Flashlights was nice enough to respond to the inquiry I sent to them, and they let me know that they offer a regular 25% discount to LEOs. Which light you may ask, the one at this link: http://www.surefire.com/maxexp/main/co_disp/displ/prrfnbr/878/sesent/00, and in the pic below.

With the discount from SureFire, that would make the cost of these lights $27.00 each, the most affordable ones I have found so far in this type of light. The only thing that I do not like about it is that it has a polymer body instead of Aluminum. That is not the worst thing in a flashlight. I do like the Streamlight Night Con that I mentioned in my previous post much more because of its Xenon and red LED bulbs that make it more versatile, and its aluminum body that makes it stronger; but if I cannot get a better or matching price on that one then it will likely be this Surefire G2 Nitrolon.

As I figure it, a dozen of these lights would cost: $324, and two boxes of extra lithium batteries would go for: $31.50, with shipping free on orders over $99. So the total for the lights and batteries would be: $355.50. That is very doable as to price because the donations already amount to: $325.00, and I was told another check is in the mail (could be a dollar, could be more, but the amount keeps going up) thanks to you.

I also received a reply to my price inquiry from Optics Planet. The best price they offered was not close to the offer from Surefire.

The Streamlight company itself has not yet replied to my inquiry. I will give them until the weekend to send me a reply. If they do not, then the above mentioned Surefire G2 Nitrolon light will most likely be the one. That way I will be able to include some other goodies in the package besides just lights, and batteries.
All the best,
Glenn B
