I am an Air Force JTAC and, while on a foot patrol in Afghanistan at night, we were hit with and IED that was followed by a complex attack from 270 degrees around us. We had two F18s flying overhead, but due to faulty IR strobes, they couldn’t locate our position. I immediately pointed my M4 rifle to the sky, turned my SureFire Scout Light® on, and started to wave my weapon around until the F18s found our position. After they had our location, we started to engage the enemy with guns and bombs. No “friendlies” were hurt in the firefight, but we decimated the enemy forces. Thanks to my SureFire Scout Light, about 35 soldiers, including myself, are alive to tell this story.

I have one of your Scout Light® WeaponLights, and I also used a HellFighter® on my .50 caliber machine gun in Iraq. With the Scout Light, I used it to clear rooms and to find things in the dark. I still use one on my AR-15 at home to keep unwanted trespassers at bay. I loved my HellFighter in Iraq. Our motto was "put daylight on them without them knowing it." And we did just that, because we rarely took the infrared filter off.
