TRUE STORIES

G2X-A

Back To True Stories Main

I purchased a G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical--Ed.] at the recommendation of my brother, a retired military officer and army pilot, a few months before Hurricane Ike hit. I'm sure glad I did. I'd been using Mag-Lites for decades and, frankly, never really owned a proper flashlight. When Ike hit, my G2L was literally my best friend. The storm rolled in, and I hunkered down. I used my light liberally to check my windows, doors, attic, and everywhere else water and trees might have breached my home as the storm waned down. My area had no power for six days, and my G2L's batteries lasted for five days without replacement, an amazing feat, considering how often I used my light.

I work for the largest chemical fertilizer plant in Texas. We sustained tens of millions of dollars in damages, as we are directly on the Houston ship channel and endured massive storm surges. Our plant had eight feet of water over 30 acres of offices and plant production rooms. While our staff and half dozen security officers used heavy, foot-long flashlights while we surveyed the damage, none shined as bright as mine. They had these $300 flashlights that wouldn't even last four hours without recharging, and they could not recharge without sticking them on a generator. I was always one of those people who thought a $10 flashlight from a big box store was enough. I was wrong. As a gun enthusiast, I intend to also supply myself with your tactical lights. Anyone who lives in an area with extreme weather, as I do, should have a SureFire. Thanks for making an outstanding product.

I was camping out in Northern Minnesota, and one night there was a severe thunderstorm. As I was sleeping in the tent I was sharing with four other guys, I woke up suddenly to an unidentified object hitting me in the head. Dazed and confused, I noticed that the tent wall was starting to sag. About a half second later, the wind picked it up and threw the tent across the campsite, trapping one of the campers under 800 lbs. of wet canvas. After putting my boots on in record time, I grabbed my G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical--Ed.] and woke up the rest of the guys. Two of them grabbed their SureFires, and we all got to work rescuing the trapped camper. Once he was out, we gathered up our important gear and made for the nearest shelter, about a quarter mile away, where we built a fire to fight off the beginnings of hypothermia. Having those SureFires at camp helped us get out that much quicker and avoid any serious injuries. Thanks, SureFire.

The day I brought my SureFire G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical--Ed.] to the firehouse everyone asked about it-and how much it cost. When I told them the price, they gave me the business about spending as much as I did, showing me their cheap ten-dollar lights that they claimed were just as good as any other light out there. Right. They typically work for a week or two and then go out without warning. Two months after my purchase, our company was the second responding company to a house fire. The first responding company was extinguishing the fire, and we followed behind, doing our search. My partner and I entered a room, where we found a woman lying on the floor, thanks to my bright G2L cutting right through the smoke. We were able to get her out while she was still breathing. I know that, had I been using a cheap $10 no-name brand, we may not have found this woman as quickly as we did, and she may have perished. Your flashlights are by far the brightest and definitely the toughest out there. Real life-savers. Thanks for making such top-quality lights.

I'm a volunteer firefighter/first responder. One night we were paged to a wreck with a possible pin-in. When I arrived at the scene, other firefighters were attempting to extricate the victim from the car. I'd been there maybe five minutes when the alternator on the fire engine went dead and all of the lights went out. We all carry clip-on lights made by another company, but they weren't bright enough to warn oncoming traffic. So I pulled my G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical--Ed.] from my pocket, twisted it on, and was able to stop oncoming vehicles from crashing into us and our fire engine. People said they could see the light from a half mile away. Kudos for making such a bright, durable light.

My in-laws were visiting for Thanksgiving and were telling us a story about how their power went out in their new home during a BIG storm. With Christmas just around the corner, I made a mental note to get them a SureFire G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical--Ed.]. Last week, while visiting, my mother-in-law dropped something that went under the couch. Excited to try out her new flashlight, which she had with her, she fired it up and looked under the couch, where she excitedly found the item she was looking for and a whole lot more. Her excitement quickly turned to shock as she gazed at all the dust under the couch. A "clean freak," she immediately proceeded to dust, sweep, and vacuum, her G2 LED in hand, making sure she picked up every last speck of dust. Not only did that G2 LED save the day, it got our house cleaned more thoroughly than it's been in years. Thanks, SureFire.

I'm a general aviation pilot. Recently, I was celebrating getting my commercial pilot's certificate by flying to Santa Barbara for dinner with two pilot friends of mine. Even though I wasn't the pilot on this flight, I still put my SureFire G2® LED [superseded by the G2X Tactical] and my A2 Aviator® [superseded by the A2 LED Aviator] into my flight bag. After we landed on the runway, we discovered that our landing light and taxi light wouldn't turn on. It was a dark night, and the moon was covered, so the visibility on the ground bad. Plus, some of the taxi lights were out of service as well. A wrong turn at a busy airport like Santa Barbra could cause a major disaster. So, while my friends were wondering what to do, I simply pulled my G2 LED from my bag and stuck it out the cockpit. When I pushed the button, no kidding, the taxi way was totally lighted. In fact, this little flashlight worked better than the original lights on the 1980 Piper. Using only the G2 LED, we taxied to park in one piece. There are lots of things I learned when I took my flight training, but there's one thing I've learned on my own: Never take off without my SureFire.
