There are many of us who are working on the night shift and because of that, we are often thinking that our security could endanger and undermine it is a thought and a feeling that is very difficult to endure for long. Yes, you have to walk home in the dark a few times, but eventually the fear get to you. Therefore, the best tactical flashlight is the right choice you could consider when you’re coming home.
It is just a simple device that you can carry with you throughout the day and because of its relatively small size, you never have anyone noticing the fact that you have with you a weapon of self defense very useful and good.
The tactical LED flashlight uses a powerful beam of light directed to the opponent’s eyes and thus was blinded for a short period of time. This is something that will help a lot when you will go alone at night, heading home.
I really like the surefire 2211 as an outdoor light, it really is easier to carry than a handheld. It won’t work as well as a headlamp if you need constant illumination for running or cycling, but is otherwise a solid alternative.
But it isn’t an EDC light. For that it’s just too bulky, which is a real shame. Here’s hoping Surefire comes out with something smaller and nicer looking to fill that gap.
Fitted with a nice Luminox timepiece, the original surefire 2211 is about the size of a large sports watch, allowing you to carry wrist-mounted illumination around with you day-to-day.
This surefire 2211X is considerably larger and would not only look ridiculous worn casually, but gets in the way of putting on clothes, moving through doorways and entering/operating vehicles.
So, instead giving you an Every Day Carry option, it’s more something you strap on to walk the dog at night or take camping.
In those environments, it gives you an easy way to carry serious lighting in a quickly accessible format. Compared to a handheld light, it gives you quicker access since you don’t have to fish that out of a pocket or holster. Compared to a headlamp its, well, not around your head being annoying.
And the surefire 2211X retains its applicability to handgun users. Strapping a weapon light to a gun is great, but can rule out the use of many holsters and the added bulk may interfere with comfortable, seamless concealed carry. The light is floody enough that even if it doesn’t line up perfectly with your sites, it still provides a wide enough beam to facilitate easy target acquisition and at 300 lumens is bright enough to impair the vision of anyone who has it shining in their eyes.
People from other lines of work such as miners and construction workers also use tactical flashlights to carry out their work safely and carefully. It would also be a good idea to talk to other people who have purchased these devices. Your opinions and comments can certainly help make an easy decision.
