    Help! What is the ideal flashlight to keep with your nightstand gun? Brand, model, functions, lumens, etc.
    Thanks!

    Check out Olight, FEnix, nightcore, sunwaman, zebralights, streamlight...

    It all comes down to personal preference. My current favorite is the Sunwayman V11r.

    Same here, it sits in the charger. Panic room has another, and my pants are always near the bed with wallet, knife, O-light and possibly gun (depending on if kids are in the house) in holster.

    no matter what you choose to buy, be sure to read up on the CR123 warning and fires related to the use of 2 CR123's in a flashlight.

    I have to admit I use a single AAA LED flashlight I wear more then anything.
    Plenty of light for close to +20' I must use it half dozen times a day. A bright light is great. You can blind a suspected intruder, check out yard....
    Then again for me I hear "noise at 2am" I turn on light/slide on jeans/grab gun/cell and my vision is not ruined. (nor is entire house lit up) I have a 6p type light ASP.

    Olight M20SX and another Fenix next to the bed. Both AR's have a Surfire G2 with BOG LED emitters in them.

    I also have a Jetbeam BC40, but that is way too bright for use indoors.
