    Don't have pics handy of most of them, but I only have three.
    1. LED Lenser Head lamp
    2. LED Lenser P17 (the big boy) with a belt holster thing.
    3. LED Lenser P7 with scope mount (pictured below).

    I've tried a half dozen of the cheaper chinese Cree lights because of great reviews... but none of them have come even close to the Lensers in build quality, functionality (I don't need 5 different flashing modes ffs) and ruggedness. You'd certainly hope so for the amount of dough they cost!

    Try a Night Force 170HID.You will never look back. Makes the old 170 look ancient.Contrary to what some say it does not spook the deer.

    The trouble with this is that If i went looking I would be embarrassed by what I found. I have 3 head lamps but only one head. As to torches they are strategically distributed through packs and jacket pockets so that whatever I grab there is a torch in it. I use the LED Lensor P7 with scope mount for spotlighting over the farm.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms
