I have a good friend who Needs ... A good handheld spotlight ( Would like a rechargable )
He needs to light up the area around the shop ( 300 Ft. Away )
When he hears the dogs chaseing something at night
His bedroom balcony faces the shop and it's on a lg piece of dirt so he needs a good spotlight
Already installed montion lights ... But it's a Lot of area to cover
So the quest is on for a high power handheld spotlight

This light from Jay at Flashlight Connection,
King of Throw (http://flashlightconnection.com/Dereelight-Flashlights/DBS-V3/DBS-V3-3SM-Cree-XP-G-R5-Flashlight-p259.html)
Along with this head,
Aspherical Head for DBS (http://flashlightconnection.com/Dereelight-Flashlights/DBS-V3/Aspherical-Head-for-DBS-CL1H-p145.html)
Just the DBS by itelf throws light crazy far. Put that other head on it, and I have been able to project light close to 300 yards.
I owned this brand for some time. I also own a number of Surefires and other brands. For a handheld light with the range of a common spotlight that plugs into a lighter, the Deree is incredible.
Plus, they have come down in price in a HUGE way. I paid over $150 for my set up.
I would buy that light combo again in a heartbeat.
Jay is super cool a pleasure to do business with..
Get one of the DBS that uses the 18650 batteries, and he can re-charge no problem.

I forgot to add that he wants something with the pistol grip
or lantern type
Not the flashlight type

2200 lumens, around $215.
The Fenix TK30 is 650 lumens, and around $130.

Get a dive light. I have an Underwater Kinetics http://www.uwkinetics.com/products/light-cannon-eled
Way brighter than any of the surefires that I own. I just don't know how long you can run it out of water since the it uses water to keep it cool.

Sumo is right, go with a UK spot light. They are durable and some models can throw out some serious light. Here are a few options:
