My wife got me a Surefire 6P for Christmas.

What sheath/carrier would be best for everyday carry of this very cool flashlight?

I saw a pic of a belt sheath for a surefire and a magazine that Edge Works does and it looks REALLY nice! Its a 6Z in the pic, but I'd bet they would one for a 6P without a mag if thats what you wanted.

I have one that carries vertically from Bladetech. Works fine so far. If you plan to add a filter on, you may have to settle for the horizontal carry sheath. Otherwise, my only complaint is that my kid hits the thumb button every once in a while when I'm carrying him. Anybody got a solution for that? :)

When in Uniform and occassionally when not, I use the blade-tech vertical sheath too.
During the day, I carry it with the lens up, which lets the unit sit much lower and less obtrusively on the belt.

Are you carrying lens up with your 6P or 6Z? How does it affect your drawing technique?

I have both the factory Surefire carrier (hard plastic with steel spring retaining finger) and the vertical Blackhawk. Both are okay, but I tend to wear narrower belts than they're designed for, so both shift and move a bit for me. I'm probably being picky, but I'm not real fond of the RR-I-I-PP of velcro, nor the "sproing" of the metal clip, and I'm tossing around the Mad Dog Gun Glove 6P/6Z kydex holder, and I also like the look of Scott Evan's, if it can be had without the mag holder. Decisions, decisions.
