It really sucks when...........

You go to use your surefire and find out your 8 year old has left the screw down switch on and killed your CR123 batteries. I've had this for two years and never had to replace them. Getting out my back up pair now. Wife should know better than to let her use this flashlight. :fan:

Just kidding about the :fan: But, those batteries are expensive.

    Found that out with my grandchildren they don't get it that flashlights need to be turned off
    for that matter that anything needs to be turned off.

    Fortunately, I have a friend that gives me a very generous supply of CR123's

    Well, you had the sense to buy the Ferrari, but they DO take premium gas, you know. . . :fiddle:

    Tip: buy the batteries direct from Surefire in boxes of 12 or more. Lots cheaper that way.

    I bought a box of the batteries from surefire when I bought the light. I was beginning to wonder if it was a good idea because the batteries have lasted for so long. I didn't think they would ever wear out. Little girl took care of that so I cracked open a fresh set and am back in business.

    Wow. That sounds like a cool guy.

    He is. I even pretend to let him shoot my pistols better than I do.

    You should be replacing them once a year anyways, like with your smoke detector batteries. She did you a favor! Don't you want it to work NOW when you need it? I let everyone else use the AA LED flashlight. The surefire is MINE!
