Gun Safe Flashlight

Moderator: My apologies for most likely being in the wrong Form Section. I came to you (as a Kimber) owner because I can trust this Forum every time. Subject: Gun Safe Flashlights. Please move to correct Section as required.

I have a gun safe with a light that comes on when I open the door. (I can turn it off) No problem. But I have never liked opening the safe in a dark house and advertising to the world (with a light beam) as to where I am in the house. Has anyone ever seen a flashlight with a, say, red, blue or orange low beam that would light up the interior of a safe? I could momentarily turn it on to find the item I want.

I like Surefire Products but am looking for a dedicated safe light.

Product suggestions and/or links would be appreciatd.

I actually have one of these on the wall of my closet safe. It may not be what you're looking for, but it works for me and puts out just enough light to find what I need and not bright enough to blind you.

Led lighting? If so, you can swap them out with red ones. I have to different color strips installed in my safe. Red always on, then white which tsps into the red with toggle switch. This way, red goes on when door opens. If I need a little more light. I flip the toggle and white comes on. If you just have dome sort of dome light, just get some red cellophane and stick it inside the lens.

How about getting some Rustoleum Lens Tint in a rattle can, and spraying your existing light lens? Car guys and model builders use it all the time. I just checked Harbor Frieght, and they have several battery-powered "cabinet lights" that might serve well, if you don't want to modify your existing light. Theirs are under ten bucks, and they have a 25% discount today and tomorrow.

If there was a "need" for a gun, I don't think I'd want to walk to another part of the house, fumbling with the lock because I'm stressed and just woke up, and then broadcasting to the whole house my location when the safe goes, "Beep, beep, beep, Click, CLUNK." If that was my situation, I'd consider a small safe that could be kept bedside.

I was thinking the same thing when I initially read the thread. IMO--your gun should be on your nightstand or within arms reach while you're sleeping.

I have a small safe that sits right inside my headboard just to my right so I can get it in a jiffy without much fuss and the larger safe is in another room.

I love my Streamlight Sidewinder flashlight. Compact, and you switch to multiple colors and keep them there. White, red, green, blue. You can stand it up and aim the light too. It's very compact as well.

I've used it for years and I think it's one of the best.

My safe is in my bedroom closet and I keep a flashlight on top of the safe. Every gun on the top shelf has a magazine so I really don’t have to give much thought as to which gun to grab.
