First off, thanks for looking as always

Like parents everywhere, I took my daughter trick-or-treating earlier. She asked for a "bright" flashlight to avoid walking through the puddles. To make a long story short the 4 cell MagLite was too heavy, and the AA MagLite wasn't bright enough. Finally she said "Daddy, could I have the flashlight on your big black gun?" (My Colt 6721...Gulp.)

My daughter was probably the only kid in the neighborhood to go trick-or-treating with a SureFire M962 w/DEVGRU tailcap



As a sidenote, we had to change batteries halfway through our three hour tour.

Fortunately for me she's already grounded until age 35. That way I won't have to worry about some dirtbag asking her out

Dude,

That is about the most BOSS thing I ever read in my life.

Your daughter is absolutely adorable. I've had some kids show up on my doorstep, and most of the parents that accompany them use the cheap plastic colored flashlights.

Personally, I think a 2D or 3D Maglite would be best in this situation. Maybe 2C for a child. It should last longer than Surefire lights shouldn't it?

I've got a couple of Surefire 6Ps sitting around that I carry sometimes, but they don't last all that long, and the lithium batteries are hella expensive.


On the other hand, what is this world coming to, when a flashlight starts costing upwards of 100+ dollars, not to even mention a $300-400 light? For that amount, it should do alot more than just light up.

They do weird shit here in PA too, like having the kids celebrate Halloween on the Tuesday before. 4th of July celebrations are rarely held on the 4th. I can't get a good explanation of why they do it like that around here. Pennsylvania Dutch/German wierdness, I guess.

A few warning shots when they come to the door should be sufficient...


Keep em safe... glad the family is having a good time!

I've never felt the need for one so I never bothered. I've got dozens of flashlights in the house, but nothing was suitable for her last night. Considering all the SureFire stuff I own I need to get with the program

I'm convinced that having a daughter is payback for being a man.

An LED would have been great-maybe we wouldn't have had to change batteries

After showing my daughter this thread she thought that having her picture here was better than being on TV

In typical six-year-old fashion however she decided that the picture was "rotten" and demanded that I take another-complete with a costume change of course. This is the only (posed) shot that met her approval



Women...

Just like her mother

Funny, my six year old son ask for a flashlight too for trick or treating but he got the 6p and not the M900. . What's funnier is that he knew there was a difference the two. I see I've trained him well!
Link Posted: 10/31/2004 4:37:21 PM EST
Mine got the E2E with the LED head and I had the G2.

I have had trick or treaters here for two nights now. Man this Halloween thing is screwed up by local gov't. Kids don't know what night to go get that candy anymore.

that's my only problem with surefires, short battery life

It used to say "Token Colt freak", but that was redundant given the theme of most of my posts here It's been this way for a few months now.
