    Surefire EDC-LT2, you can get it on Amazon for about 120.00 with a box of batteries.

    Before I recommend something, what is your intended use? Just for SD use? Other? Is USB rechargeable Ok or do you just want to use CR123 batteries?

    Also nowadays with any quality light there is no reason to worry about total or actual lumens.

    On the slide to the big 80, if needed, want to blind someone getting into my shit at home or vehicle breakdown. Need every edge i can get, therefore I figured 1000 lumes would work

    Unfortunately blinding effects can vary by person and situation with no guarantees on how someone will react. Although I do believe more light is always better, you need to practice how to use it. Lights are so bright nowadays you don't need to point them straight ahead to light the way, especially into white walls or mirrors... The floor or ceiling should be your default unless otherwise required.

    I have owned every generation of Surefire light and pretty much every other brand but for the past few years I have been using Klarus tactical lights which offer much more usability and are easily USB rechargeable. They have true Tactical switching where you always get full power or strobe when you press but with easily selectable lower powers. There are various sizes depending on your preference.

    Largest size, lumens, and runtime. Not belt concealable. I carry one on my duty vest.

    Smaller but with a large head, so not easily belt concealable.
    - Klarus XT11X 3200 Lumens https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07FNDD3QF..._NMk1DbVDRBZ3E

    Same large head but with easier to use tailswitch which unfortunately precludes use in a Kydex belt holster.

    I think you are talking about LEP (laser excitation phosphor) lights. Yes they throw very far, but they don't have much in the way of spill so for the class that he is going to...no bueno.

    I see you have discovered the Klarus line....Kudos...I have mentioned many times that they have the best tactical UI on the market and I still think so. My original XT11 was a complete workhorse and lived way past the abuse I put it through, while outperforming its Surefire counterparts for less money.

    I've been very happy with my Streamlight Pro Tac HL x.

    I carried a SF Fury PX3 for years at work and was very satisfied with it. Just upgraded it with a Fury DF that is better.
