SureFire Fury: Tactical Light Review

Posted on 11 April 2014

I did wonder at first if the light might be too bright especially when in a house with brightly colored walls where the light could be reflecting back at you. After using the light for a while, I love it and I would say that SureFire has set a new standard.

Rogers Rail Lite & Streamlight MicroStream

Posted on 04 April 2014

Way back in 2000 (hard to believe that’s over a decade ago now) I was first introduced to the tactical power of light.  Sure, I knew how to use a flashlight before that: turn it on, turn it off, wave it around to put light where you need it, right?  That’s common use.  I wrote […]

USB Triad Flashlight from ASP

Posted on 28 March 2014

Most people in today’s tech savvy world think of a computer port when they think of USB’s. It means the same thing in relation to the ASP Triad. No, the Triad does not have a built in flash drive. Instead, like your phone and MP3 player, one way you can charge the Triad is by plugging it in to your computers USB port.

The Streamlight TLR-1 HL Weapon Light

Posted on 25 March 2014

While I’m not normally a fan of having a handgun mounted light, there are certainly applications for such (SWAT, K9, military, etc) and I’d never argue with a person who felt that having a light mounted on their handgun for home- or self-defense was necessary. All that said, I recently was able to test the Streamlight TLR-1HL which has proven quite handy.

Brite-Strike’s Perimeter Alarm & Lighting Systems

Posted on 12 April 2012

Both seem “so simple” people will ask themselves, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Reality is, you didn’t have to think of it, you just need to appreciate it and use it if it suits your needs/situation.

5.11 Tactical ATAC L2 Flashlight Review

Posted on 23 March 2012

It would make an excellent secondary light on your duty belt or emergency light for your vehicle / camp / bug out gear. The ONLY reason I don’t recommend it as a primary tactical light is because having to switch through high output and ultra-low output to get to the strobe feature can cost valuable time and attention in a potential lethal force encounter.
