I am a big flashaholic, it case you don't know what that means, I am a collector, user, and enthusiast of flashlights. Mostly high end tactical flashlights made by Surefire, although I do have many other brands including Fenix and Maglite. So I was wondering if there are any other "flashaholics" here, I know most of you shoot firearms here so it's probably likely some of you have weapon-mounted tactical lights.

I have a few here and there.  A number of Fenix lights. A Streamlight or two, and most recently a 4sevens light.

I just picked up a Craftsman LED flashlight for $25.00 at sears, it runs on 3 AA batteries (included).  It boasts 220 lumen, aluminum housing, o-ring sealed.

Put it along side my Streamlight Stinger @ 180 Lumen and the Stinger was brighter, but not by much.  The Light list's for 34.99, but is on sale for 31.49, if you have the craftsman club card you can pick it up for 25.00.  Seems to be a good light if you don't mind the bulk of it, well worth the money and then some.  Just thought I would pass it along.

Stream Light TRL-1 user here. Good gear, for the price. 

My 6P is almost unrecognizable now, after the abuse it's endured at my hand.

I have several of Cabelas Cree LED light and for a cheaper flashlight I am very impressed.  I have been using one of them for about 4 years now.  I use them for hunting, camping, work, around the house, etc, and they work great.  Cheap AA batts, quite bright.  I dropped one of them down a rock slide 2 years ago when hunting and didn't turn off or anything, still works like a charm.

Everyone once and a while they come on sale for $25 for the 2AA versions.  Good buy IMO.
