I have a lot of different flashlights and do like the LED ones for battery life and bright lights. I like to keep a LED keychain light on each set of car and housekeys as they are very cheap (Meritline or even dollar stores) and provide an emergency light when needed. My Maglite would be great as a weapon although I don't find it any better than cheap ones as a flashlight.
CPF is a great forum, and I am a frequent poster over there. Beware though, the hobby can put a dent in your ER plans! As to the OP's question, there are many wonderful LED lights on the market these days and they are dramatically better than Maglites. A good place to start is 4Sevens - 4Sevens.Com.
