I have had the E1B for about a week now, and let me tell you, it couldn’t have come any sooner. My girlfriend and I went downtown for some night life, and when walking back late at night, its five-lumen lower output served us well. But where my Backup really came in handy was when we got back to the car. To our surprise, someone was trying to break into my car. I tried scaring him off by calling the police, but he didn’t seem to care. When he approached me and got too close for comfort, I used the Backup’s 110 lumens of max output to flash him right in his eyes. He went to his knees, and we ran to the car, started her up, and drove away.
If it wasn’t for my Backup, I don't know what might’ve happened. It may’ve saved our lives that night. Thanks, SureFire. I couldn’t have done it without you.
