Augmented by electronics for power control and switch operation, the flashlight has morphed from a basic illumination tool into a weapons system in and of itself — or at least a system that supports and enhances the weapon. Supplemental laser sighting systems are still the newcomer on the block. ) They’re no longer just toys or Hollywood props. 45, to see how far we’ve come.

For tactical team use, I’ve used the Surefire M3 three lithium cell Combat Light with the 225-lumen lamp in place. All I can say to that power output is “wow,” and it’s only half that of the Guardian and Dominator. I’ve also been working with one of the Surefire rechargeable handhelds, the 110-lumen 8AX Commander. Much larger than the 6P, the higher output 8AX features a tailcap switch, and a “twist to constant-on” mode operated by twisting the head of the light into position. ” Also, unlike many rechargeable lights, the Commander comes with two battery cells, so there is always a fully charged cell available.

Although there was much media hype about this holster — and how wonderful it was in allegedly enhancing the safety of the officer — it thankfully died a quiet death.
