I can recall some talking of daily carry flashlights in posts here over the years. In fact, a post by Malicious Compliance once upon a time a few years ago made me realize a light is an essential item to have on me at all times. I've tried a few, my first was a MagLite MagTac that put out around 300 Lumens, but was big & took x2 CR123 batteries. As the author in this article states, I was also put onto Streamlight by Kyle Defoor. The ProTac 1L-1AA is the perfect light, at least for me. I run mine with a CR123 & it puts out 300 Lumens, which is BRIGHT, especially at night, certainly enough to disorient someone & potentially extricate yourself from a bad situation, before you are forced to use any other weapons. Before I carried a light, I thought "why would I need one? I have my phone light." A flashlight, like a knife, comes in surprisingly handy, more than one would think. I personally prefer a handheld over a WML. Do you have a light on you right now? What light do you prefer?
