My love of flashlights began with a Surefire 6P back around the 2003 timeframe. At that time, LED bulbs were not yet used much in tactical flashlights, and the 6P used an older style Xenon bulb. The CR123a lithium batteries were expensive, and the runtime was relatively short at about 1 hour with an output of about 60 lumens. The price was also in the $60 range, and it was my first “expensive” flashlight beyond the huge Maglite D-cell flashlights.
