So you didn't really save any money over a higher quality one then, did ya?

Actually, they would be fine if I was not "needing" a remote pressure switch. I finally bought a Fenix TK15 and it's remote. If the switch of this one last for real, effectively I didn't save any money. But when you read other people's comment about the same flashlight (Romisen) I seem to be among the first to be unsatisfied about it though, it was a "safe risk" in my opinion. And also, you need to try a CQB game or a night game with a flashlight to be ready to spend a lot of money on a flashlight. I would have never bought a 100$ flashlight right away without knowing if I enjoy using one or not. At least the 2 other flashlight will still be used somewhere else, without a remote!

Found a nice canadian website for Fenix that does a price match with anyone, even ebay sellers! Got the flashlight and remote for 100$ shipped and received within a week, seemed a decent price.

Yup that's the Canadian distributor/wholesaler. I got my 3 and a pack of CR123's for around $220 or so, but that was a test order when I was thinking about carrying them in my store.

To give you an idea of their effectiveness, I sent an email a Saturday night saying I want the price match and that if they do it to send me the paypal invoice, woke up un Sunday with an invoice in my mailbox!

I'm actually looking into reasonably priced flashlights for field games as well and found these

I'm curious what all your opinions on tactical grip flashlights are. I'm in the middle of buying myself a RIS for my M4 and it seems like it's a good way to kill 2 birds with one stone for anyone else who's also looking for a foregrip

Barska stuff will be nicer than the airsoft stuff but they will have an issue shipping to Canada.

You can probably buy a real Surefire 6PLED for around $70 new (I did), and buy a Kings Arms Surefire 6P pressure switch for $15.

It is only rated at 65 lumen max output, but its light is much brighter then most of the ACM ones I see on the field that have a advertised lumen output of 200-300.

Costco sells CREE LED flash lights 3 in a pack (each takes 3 x AAA) for a good price. For some reason I can't find it on their website, but if you go into the STORE itself, you'll find it.
