Thanks, but it looks like a gimmicky $10 flashlight to me. It was available on eBay for $18.31, but looks like they ran out. I'm sure that the claim of massive orders pouring in from law enforcement, etc., is a massive exaggeration.

Regardless, I'm well stocked on tactical lights.

A quick follow up on this... one of my shift coworkers (a not-too-smart female) bought one of these flashlights. I was looking at it last Wednesday night and I can attest that it is pure garbage. I would rate it barely good enough for a trashy "around the house" flashlight, but even then I wouldn't want it. Had I received one for Christmas, it likely would have gone to Goodwill unopened. It's just that bad.
