Plus, figure $60-100~ for a decent China light, $50~ more will get you a used older gen. Surefire light.
But back on topic, OP get yourself mags and a rig/batteries first. THEN the toys...there's always time for more gadgets later.
If you pay 60 to 100$ for a chinese light...You're shopping in the wrong places!
And I've had some of my chinese lights go through hell and high water, like a full cycle in the washer AND dryer, behind forgotten in a snow bank and being dropped 2 stories and kept on being as bright as day and those were just 25-30$ chinese cree led lights.
