I was dispatched to a 459 audible (residential burglary alarm). I got out of my unit and ran across a busy neighborhood street to assist my partner. When I reached down to pull out my SureFire Z2 LED, [superseded by the Z2X LED--Ed.] I realized it was gone it had fallen out of my duty holster as I ran across the roadway. Unfortunately, because of the danger, I couldn't go back to look for it, so I continued inside the house and performed a building search with my weapon-mounted SureFire X300® WeaponLight. We finished our check of the residence (the alarm was unfounded), and as we started walking back across the roadway, my partner saw Z2 LED lying in the number-two traffic lane. Just as he noticed it, a huge SUV drove right over it. I was crushed because I thought my Z2 was crushed and I'd just bought it a month ago. When I walked over to inspect it, I was amazed to see that it was perfectly fine and still worked like new. I'm so glad I spent the extra bucks to buy a SureFire flashlight, because they're tough as nails and able to withstand even the most severe punishment.
