    With a Flashlight like this who needs a firearm

    Yahoo has an article about a $7000 flashlight that puts out 2,000 lumins. With that much power you should be able to blind all the bad guys in a three county radius

    That thing even looks scary. It would sure light up your life, though.

    That would be the Chuck Norris of flashlights.

    You don't need to shoot the BG, just turn on your light and set him on fire.
    Battle Plan (n) - a list of things that aren't going to happen if you are attacked.
    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    I guess some people have extra money...
    But for $7,000...why not just hire a dozen body guards with flashlights?

    A set of HID lights for a car cost ~$1500. Can't imagine why this would cost more than four times that. I'll bet it's bright, though. Good for security detail in government warehouses, or for doing a night tally at the airplane graveyard in AZ.

    7 large is way above my pay grade, that's for sure.

    Wouldn't surprise me, tho, if some federal agency like Homeland Security, decided to buy these, the way they spend money...


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
