SUREFIRE LIGHTS - does anybody use them?

Interested to know if anyone owns Surefire lights, looking for some opinions Pros and Cons, what models do you have, battery life, quality of light, ruggedness, anybody tried the blue filter that is supposed to illuminate blood?

Carry one on duty every day. Tough as anything out there, as bright as a 5 cell mag light, and always there when you need it. Battery life depends on useage and temp.

I used a 9p defender (im not sure about the name.. its a 9volt surefire) when i was i Kosovo, real nice to have in the belt! And a lot of light! some used the issued 4 cell maglite, but my thiny little surfire was much better! and no need for beating som to death with it.. we carried a glock so..

Still carry the 5 cell but the surefire is always there when you need it. Like when they bail and you have to chase them down and realize you didn't grab the maglight before the fun started. It also works better than a roll of quarters!
