TRUE STORIES

P2X-B-BK

Back To True Stories Main

The military trained me to fly fighter jets. After three combat tours I find myself back in civilian life flying as a commercial airline pilot. While it’s not as exciting to fly as military aircraft, I am responsible for a multi-million-dollar piece of equipment and the lives of over 100 passengers. During a pre-flight inspection, using my 500-lumen SureFire Fury, I found something. While inspecting the turbines, I found a raccoon deep inside the engine, something I never would’ve seen with a lesser light because the day was bright and sunny. It takes a really bright light for a proper inspection when the sun is beating down on the aircraft. If I’d have missed that raccoon, the engine would have been destroyed during the start-up procedure. I learned overseas, in combat, just how important a quality flashlight is. That day, my SureFire Fury helped me to prevent expensive engine damage—and possibly prevented a ground-crew worker from serious injury or death from the turbine ripping apart. Having a good flashlight truly is important!

I left Denver, en route to Williston, ND, with a tractor trailer full of a HAZMAT load from a chemical blending and distribution center. The trip is about a 1400-mile turnaround, and I am very familiar with the route and have completed several successful trips in the past without incident. However, on this particular trip, at around 11:30 pm on Wyoming Hwy 59, about 17 miles south of the Montana state line, my headlights quit working on a very narrow and steep two-lane road in a location most would describe as “the middle of nowhere.” Luckily, the P2X Fury that my brother gave me for Christmas was by my side and more than capable of lighting my way by holding the light out of my window so there was no reflection off the inside of the windshield. After about four miles of nerve-wracking driving, I found a safe place to pull over and wait until morning to further investigate the issue, which turned out to be a bad fuse.

I credit your outstanding product to keeping me and everyone else travelling around me that night safe, and I thank you for making such great and reliable products!

Several months back, I bought a SureFire P2X Fury for personal use, on the recommendation from a friend. One night after that, I awoke in my bed to the sound of shattering glass. I told my wife to dial 911 while I grabbed my Fury and moved into the hallway. When I arrived in the living room, I saw that a man had broken out our dining-room window and was climbing through it. He looked up at me but did not stop trying to get in. Terrified, I hit the Fury’s switch and sent 500 blinding lumens directly into his eyes, yelling, "Get out of my house!” He quickly yanked himself back out the window and took off running.

I sincerely believe that intruder intended to harm me, and I hate to think what the outcome might’ve been if I hadn’t had my SureFire. Your brand has proven itself to me, and I have since recommended it to my friends. Thanks, SureFire!

We were on a summer boating trip and, one extremely dark night tied up to a dock at a marine park attached to a large campground on Keats Island, we started hearing a child screaming. He sounded like he was in a lot of pain. Everyone who was awake scrambled from their boats to see what the problem was. It was hard to pinpoint where the screaming was coming from, so I pulled out my SureFire Fury and, on its high setting, started scanning the docks and the beach. It was a couple hundred yards to the beach, but I was able to locate the child who was hurt—he’d fallen in some logs that were high up on the beach. I kept my light focused onto the child while I made my way up the docks and onto the bridge attached to the Island. The whole time I was able to illuminate the fallen child so other people could get to him and help him.

Turned out the boy had fallen on some slippery logs, twisted his knee, and was stuck and terrified. The parents and several others were able to extract him successfully. They thanked me for locating the boy and lighting up the area so they could get to him. Many of them had flashlights, but none of them were much use beyond 20 feet or so. One man was completely shocked to see that I wasn't holding a giant spotlight and couldn't believe so much light could come from such a small flashlight. Numerous people left the beach, stating they had to get themselves a SureFire. I couldn't agree more. It's my faithful companion everywhere I go.

We were trekking the Amazon rainforest when, after nine days, we got lost. Supplies quickly dwindled, and we were soon down to the last of our food and clean water. All but one of the team’s flashlights had depleted its batteries: my dual-output SureFire P2X Fury. I’d limited myself to using its perfectly adequate 15-lumen low setting, providing us with 46 hours of runtime—enough to guide our team back to the safety of base camp. If you need a quality flashlight in the Great Outdoors, make sure it's a SureFire.

My shift partner and I were dispatched to check out a group of disorderly subjects at one of the local apartment complexes, known to be a place where drugs are used and sold. My partner went around the front while I snuck in the back to catch any subjects who might run. I pulled up to the rear of one of the buildings, and someone ran out of the shadows when he saw my patrol car.

I gave chase, my SureFire P2X Fury in hand. The subject ran out of the front of the apartment towards the woods. Everywhere I shined my Fury, the subject ran away from. He ran in front of a speeding car, and I used the 500-lumen beam to light him up so he wouldn’t get hit. The subject darted into the woods, with me not far behind, and upon entering the woods a branch hit me in the face, causing me to lose sight of the subject. I turned off my Fury and waited for the subject to make a move. He did—he was picking up a big stick to hit me with. Just in time, I shined all 500 of my Fury’s lumens into his eyes, causing him to drop the stick and cover his eyes.

He was taken into custody without further incident. He told me that he was wanted for jumping bail and, if it hadn’t been for my Fury’s overwhelming beam, he planned on hitting me with that stick, taking my gun, and fleeing. Thanks to my Fury, none of those happened. I never go on shift without it. Thanks for a great product, SureFire!

I'm a bouncer at an Irish pub, and as such, it’s not uncommon for me to be involved in eight to nine fights a week. I have a SureFire P2X Fury that I carried in Iraq, so I started bringing it with me to work. Everyone at work liked the dual illumination and compact size, but what really sold them on its necessity was a fight with a drunken linebacker one night.

When asked to leave, the linebacker charged me, leaving me only a moment to think. There was only one other bouncer on duty with me, and neither of us were a match for the raw strength of this man. I instinctively reached for my SureFire Fury and shined the 500-lumen beam into his face. The light was so focused that it didn't bounce of the walls and blind us, but it stopped him dead in his tracks. I had no trouble convincing him to leave after that.

The experience left in indelible impression on my coworkers. Now that we all carry SureFires as part of our uniforms, we've had to use far less force on the job.
