My MAGLITE® flashlight was purchased, I believe in the 1980s. It rode with me throughout my tour of duty as a Colton policeman. The Police Department purchased SL-20 for us but this lite (my MAGLITE) stayed with me in my patrol bag as a backup and was still used. Many a bad guys and evidence, at night, was found with this lite, the adjustable head was great to flood the interior of vehicles during traffic stops. This lite was a trust worthy partner a policeman could have.
I retired after 29 years on the force, in 2005; this MAGLITE® flashlight is still in use today. It is in our 5th wheel travel trailer.
