Do any of the good vis lasers out on the market use a DL123 or eq battery?  Right now everything I have that uses batteries(strobe, weapons light, personal light) uses DL123s except for my laser, which uses AAs.  Would be nice to only have one type of battery.

I'm a little surprised Paul didn't say this, but the best laser that takes DL123 batteries is the SureFire L72 (or is it L76?)  Then again, he probably didn't mention it because they are freakin expensive...

Aahhh, the other shoe drops!  I'm confident that SureFire will continue to produce visible lasers (could be wrong), and I would like to think it will take a series of DL123A batteries.  I also think it will be just as costly - but just as good or better!  Can't wait, especially for the [b][green]GREEN[/green][/b] laser!

Boy you got that right, PPD.  The red SureFire laser was around $500, give or take, and I wouldn't be surprised that when they release/produce the green for civilians will probably be $750 - $1000.  That's a lot of clams especially when the gun itself probably cost that or less.  Don't quote my figures, I have not researched it lately.

Yes, for those who want the best, and can afford it.  I qualify for the first part...

Discontinued?  What’s up with that?  Are the trying to focus on finally getting the L80 on the open market?  Seems pretty crappy to discontinue the only available option from Surefire to Joe Citizen.
