why not a streamlight?

as im sure we all enjoy john's opinion and posts on tools i have a question for him. is there a specific reason that you do not sell( or ever even mention that i have seen) any lights from streamlight? are they too expensive or difficult to deal with from a resellers point of view? have u had any bad experience with them or are they just not that common? i noticed them in my line of work, aviation maint, about 4 or 5 years ago and they are by far the best rechargeable light i have ever used. i know that there is a whole other angle to the personal defense/ law enforcement side of things and since i have no experince on that topic all i can speak from is the maintaince side of things. i like the fact that the kit i got came with 2 charging bases and a 12vdc and 115 vac cable. i have one mounted in my truck and one in the shop. i have never used any brand of headlamp so i cant speak of those but the flash lights just kick some serious ass. just curious as to hear your thoughts on this.

edit: the one i have is the stinger hp http://www.streamlight.com/products.htm

The 4AA Propolymer is fantastic for around 24 dollars.

That's funny, Kevin, because I always had you pegged as a Streamlight sort of guy.

Not sure if thats a compliment or an insult? noclue

I left one with my PH in South Africa and you would have thought I left him my Swarovski Binoculars, him and the outfitter were both angling for it. When batteries last that long in a place where more are neither cheap nor convinient, LED lights rule.
