    Rules:
    - you must eMail me, preferrably from your work eMail account, but if you do not have a work eMail account then from your home eMail account, with your Officer.com forum alias, real name, rank and Agency contact information (name, address, main phone number, fax number, Agency address) to ([email protected]) so I can confirm who you are (I have free long-distance calling in North America from my home phone);
    - if you have sent me an eMail from your work account, I will eMail you back from my work eMail account with my Agency contact information, so you can confirm who I am, and will also include WordPad Adobe attachments with flashlights and parts information that I have put together for myself;
    - you tell me which light you would like to try out;
    - I will send the one light, cells and charger to your Agency address, marked for your attention the least expensive and uninsured way possible;
    - delivery time is usually 14 days either here to the USA or vice-versa;
    - you can keep the light, cells and charger for 7 days, or at least 2 shifts where you work between 16:00 and 08:00;
    - if the parcel arrives during a period where you are on duty 08:00 - 16:00 mostly, or on a long stretch of days off, we can negotiate the length of stay by eMail;
    - the light, cells and charger are always considered to belong to me;
    - you will NOT use the light, cells and charger to strike any person, animal or other object, either by throwing the light at them/it, or while the light is in your hand, and would HAVE to replace any such item so damaged, either by buying and sending me a new light, cells or charger, or sending me the funds so I can purchase it/them myself;
    - you MAY try the cells in one of your own flashlights, or other electronic devices, that these cells MIGHT fit in, but you are responsible for ANY damage these cells cause to your flashlights or electronic devices and ANY damage caused to the cells or charger, per above;
    - you HAVE to be careful when using any of these lights, as they are EXTREMELY bright and can generate a LOT of heat;
    - you mail the light, cells and charger back to me the least expensive and uninsured way possible, along with some gear that you no longer use to compensate me for sending the light, cells and charger to you;
    - - such gear could be an OC spray canister holster, single or double handcuff pouch, ASP baton scabbard, search/surgical glove pouch, double-mag pouch (to fit a 15 round 9 mm mag), single mag/knife/tool pouch (same mag size), cell phone pouch, preferrably black basketweave leather, ballistic nylon construction or kydex/hard plastic, or a departmental t-shirt or ball cap;
    - you and I will both show the value-for-duty as "$7.50 US" and "gift" on our respective Customs declaration forms.

    I am not a manufacturer, wholesaler or retailer sales representative. I have over 31 years of field experience as a uniformed general duties and traffic investigator. I have always been interested in having good illumination tools available to me, as I have worked a LOT of night shifts, including being called-out while "voluntarily" being on-call during "quiet hours". I have built up the above collection in the last few years, and have acquired some of them as the result of conducting field tests for companies or retailers. I frequently loan these lights out to my partners so they can try them out to see what advancements have been made in flashlights.

    This offer to loan out these lights is NOT to induce you to buy any of them, but to give you an idea of what is out there beyond the traditional duty lights, as well as to see what can be done to improve the output of traditional duty lights. You can review the information files that I will send you at your leisure to do your own research into these items, their manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, and you can either contact them direct yourself, or I can assist you to buy these items if you prefer.
