    Just one, if it's really really bright. :tongueout:

    I have a 3 D cell mag-lite with an LED conversion head, rated at 500+ lumens.

    I have a 240 lumen LED for my 6R Surefire.

    Flashlights are like holsters, they just keep adding up.

    I used to have just one in the car and one on my bat belt.

    Now I have about 6 in the car, still only one on the bat belt, but like 4 more in the trunk (this includes weapon mountable lights).

    They are a scattered mix of LED and incandesent.

    Plus, I just found 2 M3X's in my safe.

    Maybe they are like rabbits and just keep multiplying!!!!!:whistling:

    Now if one would multiply into a Surefire X400 . . .

    Wish mine would do that. I have to buy each of mine with good old fashioned money, which is why I don't have more.

    My goal is to have as many flashlights as Tiger has had dalliances.

    Therefore, I buy as many as I want.

    So many that I have a reputation for knowing all about lights and having a lot. Not even going to attempt to list them. I had to ban myself from places like Candlepowerforums.com bc I buy too many lights. When I got divorced the c u next tuesday even tried to say she wanted half of my lights just to piss me off

    I'm still not a man. I carry a lightning bug in my pocket. He's been dead for 6 years now. :crying:

    Whoops, I musta missed it.

    I forgot, I also have 2 quiqlites. An "old style" that I still use and a "new style" that I never liked.

    Oh, and those tactical lights balls... lol... They actually seem like a good idea, but they're definitely not practical to carry around.

    TLR-1 on AR-15
    X200 on Duty gun
    TLR-1 on nightstand gun
    SL-20LED (duty/sap pocket)
    Surefire G2 LED (duty/belt holster)
    Streamlight Keylight
    ASP Keylight
    Standard Stinger (mounted in my living room hidden)
    Streamlight Ultrastinger (mounted in basement/office hidden)
    Streamlight Stinger DS LED (mounted in bedroom closet next to my armory)
    Streamlight SL20 standard (mounted in garage)
    Streamlight Strion LED (wife duty light)
    Maglite 6D/LED head (sitting next to my bed - club)
    Maglite 4D/LED head (next to wife's side of the bed - club)
    MiniMag LED next to gunbench in basement

    Getting ready to order a Fenix TK40 and LD20 for duty to replace the SL20LED and G2LED.

    The TK40 should fit in my sap pocket okay. Just need to find a holster or have one made out of Kydex for the Fenix LD20. I wish my Surefire holster would work but I doubt it.

    The SL20 LED will then get hardwired and mounted in my SS and the G2 in the glove box of my Audi. :supergrin:
