I guess this is the right section?????

any way im looking for a really good bright flashlight that i can mount the recharging base in my truck. I Would like to get one as cheap as possible but still be bright and dependable, I know I know an oxymoron right. my price range is less than $100. I am hoping that we have some police officers on here that can give me some good advice.

This is one i was looking at www.streamlight-flashlights.com/strion.html

Ha ha you talking about spotlighting deer or something?

I was brought up a better sportsman than that Not only that but they highly highly frown upon that around here. They'll confiscate any thing and everything that is in the truck and impound the truck.

I'm really just looking for a really good light for walking to and from stand and for tacking if I shoot one at dusk and while loading and unloading cargo. I've been using a mag light but its not bright and goes through batteries like no tmrw not to mention how heavy it is

I picked up one at Sams Club for 40 bucks and it's a beast. I'll check the specifics on it when I go back to the camp. It has a led light in the handle for walking around, then a broad high beam then a concentrated beam that's good for hundreds of yards. It also has a lighter plug in it so you can charge off of it if need be.

MagCharger by Mag Lite, halogen bulb, not the longest battery life per charge but more than enough for a truck mounted flashlight/spotlight... also works well for personal defense... all my friends that are cops as well as the whole city PD carry these...

I have a stream light "stinger" I love it but it will only last an hour continuous. It's bright as hell and I know they are used by airplane inspector's on like 747's ext. I'm told they can see and inspect from the ground at night the tail section! Iv had it out in the woods and shined treetops and lit them up like it was day. Oh and it will get hot if on for a good length of time.

The streamlights are definately not a bad option.

on a side note...

I bought a few of the Maglite LED's (3-d,2-d,AA) and they are BRIGHT...bright as a surefire, and the battery life is GREAT! I have about 3hr run time on mine and it still as bright as it was 3hrs ago. If your not set on getting a rechargeable I'd definately give these a look.

im pretty stuck on getting a rechargable. On a side note i may buy the led replacement bulb for my mag lights if you say they are bright. I have 2 big mag lights and they arent very bright atleast not to my liking.
