I just got back from an 18-day African safari, hunting dangerous game. Prior to my departure, I purchased another Surefire flashlight--the SureFire E1B Backup®, which probably saved my life. One morning, while walking into a blind, I heard a noise ahead of where my guide and I were walking. I grabbed my light and held it ready in my left hand. Suddenly, from less than 15 yards away, in total darkness, a tusk-less cow elephant charged us. I hit her with the bright light and stopped her in her tracks at about eight yards. My guide yelled, and she turned and walked away with her calf. I am convinced, as was my guide, that the Backup's intense light played a huge part in changing her mind. Thank you for an awesome product.
