TRUE STORIES

G2X-B

Back To True Stories Main

The East Coast was being slammed with a freak snowstorm. We had just lost power, and I had to go out and get some ice to prevent our food from spoiling. At the intersection near the store, two cars were involved in a pretty nasty accident. With no electricity to power the traffic signals, they must not have noticed each other and collided. The situation appeared to be pretty dangerous with limited visibility and flying snow.

A police officer was already on the scene, and he looked pretty overwhelmed. I and a few other drivers got out of our cars to see what we could do to help. The officer told everyone to get back in their cars—except for me. He called me over and asked me to help divert traffic. I gladly obliged, grabbing my G2X Pro to assist the officer in redirecting cars until official help arrived.

After the situation was under control, the officer thanked me and I asked him why he selected me to help. “Easy,” he said, nodding at the SureFire cap on my head, “your hat.” He said he was familiar with SureFire and the types of people who use their products. SureFire represents more than just quality illumination tools; it represents a certain brand of people. In this particular officer’s eyes, strong, capable, people who can be relied on for help. Thanks, SureFire.

About 2 am on a Saturday morning, I woke up to find two men in the process of burglarizing my neighbor’s car. I immediately called the police to inform them of the situation. Then I grabbed my SureFire and Glock as a precaution. The street has poor lighting and many mature trees, so it is not difficult to hide in the shadows. While waiting on the police to arrive I hid under the cover of darkness and watched the thieves rummage through my neighbor’s car.

The burglar was using a flashlight in the car, but there was not enough light to get an accurate description. After a couple of minutes, the men completed their crime and began to leave. At this point, I knew they were about to get away, and I could not yet identify them properly. I was able to flash one of the men in the face with the powerful beam of my G2X Pro from an approximate distance of 20 feet and got an excellent look at him. The man fled on foot, but was picked up by police a couple of hours later.

Thanks to my G2X giving me a good look, and me giving the police a good description, he was arrested—not just a good thing for my next-door neighbor but for several others on the block who’d had their cars broken into that night as well. Some of the property was recovered and returned to the rightful owners due to this man’s arrest.

On a recent trip up to our family cabin, in the snowy mountains of Southern California, my G2X Pro was indispensible and helped me ensure that all the people around me stayed safe and comfortable. SureFire, as a company, is a perfect example of what American companies are capable of. The manufacturing is top notch, and the customer service is hands down the best I've ever encountered. I have extreme confidence that my G2X will continue to keep me and my loved ones safe for many years to come. Thank you for an excellent product and outstanding customer service.

A few months ago, I started looking for a better pocket flashlight than my ten-dollar No-Name brand that would go dim shortly after a fresh set of batteries were installed. I found the G2X Pro, which had the best blend of usability, reliability, and cost, for my budget, anyway. It took almost an entire month for its batteries to run down, and I use it all the time, and the quality is just amazing I wish I had a life-or-death story to tell about it, but not yet although I know that if the situation ever arises, it will surely stand up to the occasion. Thanks, SureFire, for your dedication to quality. Nothing in portable lighting comes even close to a SureFire. Period.

I work at a small magazine in New York City and, while our offices are new, our building is old and prone to maintenance problems. Our magazine's beloved founder died two years ago, and we keep a unique collection of his writings and personal effects in our storage room. For the posterity of our small operation and our devoted readers, some of these pieces of history are quite literally priceless and are memories of the man whose pastoral writings have endeared him to our many readers for decades.

A few weeks ago, we narrowly avoided a catastrophic loss of all of them. Just before the close of the business day, a water heater ruptured in the ceiling directly above our storage room, and we had mere seconds to save our founder's papers and effects. With water streaming from the storeroom ceiling at an alarming rate, most of our overhead lights went out, and attempting to turn them on again was an electrocution hazard. With no windows in the room, we would have been reduced to pitch-darkness had I not had my ultra-bright (and fortunately waterproof) G2X Pro flashlight, which provided more than ample illumination for the entire room. With only seconds before the water would ruin the stacked cardboard boxes and their contents, the light from my G2X allowed us to identify the most important items just before the water got to them. At one point during the rush, someone pulled out a smart phone with a gimmicky "flashlight" screen feature, and I couldn't help but laugh, seeing how SureFire easily redefined the term "flashlight" in every meaningful way. We wouldn't have been able to save irreplaceable pieces of our magazine's history if it weren't for your trusty light. Thanks, SureFire.
