I have/had? one of those. It was 100,000,000 candel Power when new. The last time I ran across it and plugged it in I think a 3 cell mag light would be as bright.

I added extra wire to mine with alligator clips. I use it on my boat fishing at night. Lights up the water out in front of me. Things are sure enough bright. Dont buy replacement bulbs from Brinkmans. Any auto parts store has them at a fourth of the price.

It needs a pad on top to rest the gun on.
I've also seen them taped to the underside of a 22

Why use a spotlight when you can shoot them in daylight hours without raising suspicion. Now if youíre a trophy poacher itís a different story.

I had one similar for checking beaver traps... I would pull up on the bridge and shine it down at my set location. It was bright enough to illuminate the trap under the water. If the trap was there and undisturbed I went on. If it was gone you could shine out along the path of the drowner rod and sometimes see the dark shape of a dead beaver underwater.

Didn't work with ice on the water though... You would have to walk down and break the ice and check. But our beaver don't move much with hard water and usually waited a day or 3 till it would thaw out.

Not sure how hot those get, but my dad had an old rectangle one that is older than I am. Lit a truck seat on fire in a ford with it when I was just a baby. I don't remember it, just the story of him having to get the seat unbolted and out of the truck while it was smoldering before it caught the rest of the truck on fire.

Some Indians here drive around with those fastened to the outside of their truck above the side view mirrors. They are bolted on and donít even take them off lol.

That's a chargeable offense in Alabama. Illegal to shine a light from a roadway.

Might possibly be here too... But I would take the ticket and fight it.

Can't see much difference between that and angling my vehicle to shine my headlights at a set location. Heck, I've left the truck running and used the headlights to illuminate a set while I checked it.

I get the reasoning... But there's a difference between catching poachers and finding retarded reasons to issue citations... of course we are talking about government employees. So there's that to consider.
