As a patrol officer, you respond to numerous alarms and deal with a wide variety of animals while working the beat. Recently, I responded to a home alarm around 2:30 a.m. I entered the fenced backyard to check all the windows and the back door. As I rounded the back corner of the house, without warning, a white pit bull came out of nowhere. Luckily, I had my SureFire U2 Ultra, one of my most trusted pieces of equipment, in my hand, because, by the time I noticed the pit bull, it was almost on top of me. The only thing I could do was shine the U2 in the attacking dog's eyes. The intense light stopped the dog in its tracks! This gave me time to transition to my duty weapon, which, thankfully (for me and the dog), I never had to use. My U2 was my first line of defense, and it performed flawlessly. Another great product from SureFire.
