First Post so be gentle.
I’m looking at treating myself a P30 then came across this forum and it’s great and learning soo much. Then found alot of torches recommended on budget not available UK which met my needs, small thrower type torch for walking my whippet at night.
Can anyone recommend safe website to buy from? Likes of GT mini. C8 etc?
I live down in Devon and use some of my torches while walking my Podenco, has some similar traits to the Whippet but also likes to climb trees, fences, scaffolding, etc. and has a completely uncontrollable prey drive.
Banggood and Gearbest are good and safe stores to buy from.
(Only Banggood is shipping batteries to the UK at the moment)
There are several members here that get us nice discounts on flashlights and accessories from both mentioned stores. I have listed a few of them and links to some of there threads below:

The GT mini and the C8 are great lights and good throwers, personally I prefer a torch with a bit more flood than those when walking the dog but its all down to personal preference.
I sell a few of my torches on eBay occasionally but unfortunately sold my GT mini and a couple C8’s end of last year. Only thing similar’ish I have for sale at the moment is a Utorch Sofirn C8F 3500lm Triple which I’m selling together with a 21700 4000mah battery and a charger
Get the P30, you’ll like it. Small, but it means business.
If you like Nitecores, the MH20 has a coupon from GB for 50bux (convert to £ as appropriate). That’s my current EDC, no looking back.
The MH20GT (“greater throw”) is a bit throwier, but I’ve never seen any flash sale or coupon for it.
If you don’t mind bigger, the C8F kicks arse. Get the one that takes a 21700 and get the kit. The thicker tube is more “balanced” relative to the head for a better feel, vs the 18650 version, ’though the latter’s still quite nice. I’ve got a C8 Army, including most if not all the Sofirns.
I’ve used Fasttech, Banggood and Kaidomain, and also Mountain Electronics in US and LED4Power in Croatia succesfully. You’ll have to be patient with the international delivery though, especially from China.
