Try any gun shop.  There are 2 types.  Powa Beam lights have metal cases
and get very cold when owling in winter.  Lightforce make a plastic case
one.  They are both Australian made.  About $80. They are usually sold with
100 watt bulbs which work fine from a car battery.  The bulb could be
changed for a 55 watt or a 30 watt for longer life on portable batteries. 
Not so bright is good for owls eyes I've heard.
