    Saw that on the Weather Channel earlier. My first thought was, here we go again.

    Anyone know of a source for the "123" Surefire batteries? I used to get them for $4.97 / 2 at Lowe's but went by & they apparently don't sell them anymore.

    Probability says far more about the state of our knowledge than it does about the state of nature. In other words, a probability statement is a calculation of our ignorance of the future - how wrong we are, not how right we are. Something most folks have difficulty wrapping their heads around. :)

    Doesn’t it piss you off how NO and Louisiana get talked about but Mississippi is never mentioned by name?

    I heard a report earlier than talked about Louisiana, New Orleans specifically, and mentioned Alabama and Florida but skipped right over us.

    Check out Battery Junction. They have a huge selection and decent prices. I've used the Panasonic and Energizer brands, in addition to the Surefires, and had good results.

    Again, it needs to go straight for DC.

    Thanks and I'll check all the online stuff but right now I was looking for a physical store that sells them local in anticipation of the weekend, thought I had more on hand than I actually do, which is never a good thing. Can't believe Lowe's dropped them. I was told Walmart dropped them due to "shrink" (theft).

    Yeah I remember seeing them in lowes long time ago and was appalled at the price. Could get double the amount for less online. Have a few in my rifles that the lights use them and keep the rest in my battery drawer. Which prob could stand another pack just in case

    Think they are $5 for 2 at academy..

    Need to check and see how my supply is, may be time to order some more. Ive been using a new rechargeable light most the time lately..
    I am slowly switching over to lights that will run on both these cr123 or rechargeable 18650. I probably have 20 of the 18650 now , mostly from salvaging them from old laptop batteries.

    Went back by Lowe's & found a 12-pack for $24. So good for now; will stock up online though. Need to add these to the "hoard"

    Yeah the 2-packs at Lowe's are $4.97. Online with free prime shipping the products on the links above are a bit cheaper, considering no taxes paid.

    Sorry to rain on your parade but Amazon is charging tax on most sales now.
