So apparently my unit has some $$ for some new flashlights...
I've researched the threads but most are a little out of date.
What's everyone's recommendation for a bulk purchase of decent lights?
As it's a federal puchase, cheaper is of course better...
Anyone know of a supplier that will do a good price on bulk purchase?
Currently, we're looking at a streamlight for about 58 bucks.
I'm not sure of the exact model, but I can find out if need be...
Edit: It's a Streamlight Scorpion X...

If you use these as your parameters, you should be good.

So you're happy with it even though it's less than 6" and quite slender too?

I need to agree... after a couple weeks of giving the Hexbright a run, the battery doesn't seem to last as long as I'd like... So I'm back to my trusty TK-21!

TL;DR - Scorpion LED would be the only model of Scorpion I would seriously consider. Otherwise find one like Pete said. He knows flashlights pretty good. (Though considering my friends keep asking when I'm going to open my flashlight museum, I may be following in his footsteps...)
I use a Streamlight Incandescent that takes 3 x CR123 Lithium batteries and a Streamlight Led that requires 2 X Cr123 Lithium batteries and they work excellent.
The batteries do not last long but they work really well and if your agency will cover the batteries your set. The streamlight incandescent will light up a school yard if you need it too and the Led works great for indoors.
the ones I got are a bit pricey to start but they have been a great tool.
