Not a weapon but i know you guys have have a thing for good flashlights. So I need a flashlight for preflight checks and in cabin chart reading. The Surefire A2 aviator seems to be the answer for this. Compact, well made, reputable company, apparently bright, and most importantly it has red leds for night reading which is essential for my needs. The only gripe is the $130-140 price tag. As someone pretty new to the high end flashlight scene I am a bit apprehensive. What seperates a surefire from say this light: http://www.sportys.com/acb/showdetl.cfm?DID=19&Product_ID=10943&CATID=169#desc vs http://www.sportys.com/acb/showdetl.cfm?DID=19&Product_ID=10152&CATID=169 I live with the mentality that you should always buy the best you can afford but that comes with the caveat of not spending money just for a brand name or to show off.
