    For firefighters. This coating will glow for 17 hours when fully ambient light-charged, it will even illuminate the environment for the first hour!

    Flash back to the John Ritter movie Skindeep.


    Now THAT movie had a great "glowing weapon in the dark" scene.

    This is a gun forum, let's not talk about sword fights....

    I'm not that interested, but I can think of a couple of Congressmen that would probably jump on a product like this...

    ...oh, wait...you're talking about the OTHER kind of gun...

    I was watching an episode of Mondern Marvels about NASA technology just the other day and they were talking about the fact they had a special glowing polymer/paint material they had improved for space use. It was designed as emergency lighting, and apparently is coming into use in commercially available EXIT signs that help save quite a bit of electricity. Supposedly they absorb and release light better so that a single "charge" lasts something along the lines of 37 hours. I immediately thought that would make great gun sights, or maybe in illuminating your bedroom handgun safe/holster to make it easier to find in the dark.

    The only think I want lit up about my weapon is the muzzle flash.

    Now my Wife's car keys could use some of this stuff.
