The unique configuration of Kel-Tec’s CL-43 Flashlight makes it ideal for use with a “syringe”-style grip by the support hand when shooting a handgun in the Weaver or isosceles holds.

The company machines the light from extruded 6061 aluminum and seals the components with gaskets, making it impact-resistant and waterproof to a depth of one meter. Power is by way of three CL123 lithium batteries that energize a single 420-lumen LED for three hours, 35 minutes.

The rubberized activation button has a checkered face and offers momentary and constant on/off positions, the latter with an audible click. A spring-steel belt clip and lanyard-ready D-ring round out the features. Price: $140
